Arab Fashion Week dazzled by Saher Dia’s Golden Era
“Simplicity is elegance,” said Saher Dia, following his show at Arab Fashion Week on November 15th, in which he showcased his collection for the first time as a Pret-a-Couture for this season.
The clientele included various royalty and VIPS across the GCC and Levant, Fashion Designer Saher Dia’s latest collection debuts at Arab Fashion Week.
Who is Saher Dia?
Lebanese Saher was born and brought up in the UAE. Since the establishment of his atelier in 1997, he has mastered the art of how the right dress or fabric can perfect a woman at any function or event, from evening out to wedding.
His love for fashion began at a young age, as he drew inspiration from the beauty and femininity of a woman and learned how the right fabric can compliment the grace and elegance of a woman’s body with his classic designs.
His designs are known for their simplicity and classiness, with stylish pieces that are combined with elegance, which has fast become synonymous with glamour, giving his name a signature look of “ultimate luxury in simplicity”.
Golden Era Collection
Saher’s Golden Era collection included evening gowns and one royal wedding gown. The collection was completed by combining a powerful, yet moving mix of pastels, bois de rose to pinks, blue gray to blues and a soft mix of off-whites and beiges, moving towards golden on different fabrics with accents of silver and gradual color shifts.
Bringing together a beautiful blend of fabrics, from stretchy satin and crepe and dentelle, chiffon, tulle, organza, taffeta and some detailed embroidery, from romantic aesthetics to breathtaking silhouettes, the collection takes you to a time in which a woman’s femininity was evident in the sway of her skirt.
“We have to find a way to have the dress glow,” said Style Icon Marlene Dietrich long ago. Today, Saher’s collection has drawn inspiration from golden style icon Marlene Dietrich, followed by the exotic Rita Hayworth, who has captured his heart, and Greta Garbo.
The three powerhouses of style gave birth to Saher’s Golden Era collection, bringing together a timeless collection of dresses loved from the 1920’s to the late 1940’s.
