Ziad Ghanem’s Couture latest collection, “L’or Noir” was launched during Couture Fashion Week for Fall 2014. The collection is inspired by the work of expressionist photographer Aaron Siskind and petrol-oil in the way it engulfs space, water and living things. Using their trade mark techniques of printing and lace construction, the design team has created a new dramatic selection of evening dresses and cocktail gowns.
The colour palette is consisting of black shades and highlighted tones, to create a blended texture, that is reminiscent of petrol developing, the appearance of a second skin and scuba like texture.
“Borrowing elements from sportswear, we designed the couture pieces, having in mind an independent and powerful woman, neither feminine or masculine.” Commented Ziad and Aiden, The design team behind the Ghanem couture ‘nouveau’ look.
