The fashion guru of glitz and glamour, not forgetting sensational fairy-tale wedding dresses, has done it again with a dazzling display that will make any girl swoon. Zuhair Murad’s Fall/Winter 2015/16 Collection proves to be an explosion of intergalactic, cosmic and star-studded odysseys of fashion. The jewel encrusted gowns, together with sensual dresses of a dramatic appearance will leave you feeling as if falling from heaven’s gate, yearning to catch every fine detail and not let any of it slip through your fingers. Velvet capes have always been a favorite accessory that will elevate an outfit to the most extreme levels of couture, and Zuhair definitely catapults us to that peak in this fabulous line. You are certain to treasure the short black velvet cloaks with a princess bow draping the collarbone, and fitted lace jackets added with the ethereal elegance of sparkling gems.
What is so thrilling about this collection is the undeniable fact that it lifts you off into a glittery, savoir-faire, milky way experience, scaling grand new heights of fashion and art from which you will never want to descend. Heightened consciousness on another plane? It’s all right here in this outstanding collection. The sumptuous dark blue, black, lavender, reds and what I call mint julep green, with hints of more velvet and fur, envelope fabric so breathtaking that you may need to remember to take a breath while feasting your eyes on these magnificent pieces of aesthetic poetry. Breathe and then bear witness to such an orchestral arrangement of color and fabrics made to manifest in angel-like silhouettes that propel your launch into the absolute future of pure over-the-moon bliss. Chic star gazing jumpsuits and bodysuits are all beautifully enhanced by a cascading shower of pioneering stoles, coats and capes capturing the essence of glamour in every aspect possible.
Though words are largely inadequate to describe such palpable grandeur for the bridal gown grand finale, ones that readily come to mind for those on planet Earth are: lunar radiant, glorious and positively triumphant! This gown, with its celebrated and eminent detailing and hypnotically gorgeous aesthetics from another world we’d love to visit (and perhaps set up permanently blissed out encampment!), will transform any bride into nothing short of a profoundly mythical, ethereal Goddess.
Ground Control to Major Tom, you are stepping through the fashion doors of perception. You better hold on tight!
