I love the ruffles in this dress. They are perfect!
Grey is my new favorite color, and this lovely gown flows like air.

stunning in this dress!

My question to Zeena Zaki: Your designs are so beautiful and so ornate. Do you feel that you can reach the international market with your ball gowns?

Answer: Absolutely! I am 100% confident that my designs will be welcomed by the international fashion community. Right now, I have clients form all over the world… New York, London, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Lebanon, and so may other places. My designs transcend all cultural boundaries because they are made to make a woman look and feel beautiful. What woman does not want to look and feel beautiful?!

My question to Georgiana of Barbara Bela: Your collection seemed very fresh and young this season. Who are you targeting as your clients with this collection?

Answer: We have all women in mind when we begin to design. We try to create beautiful clothes that show of the body of a woman. In Brazil, our women are sensuous and like to dress that way. Age does not make a difference.

Sequence is a signature fashion trend this A/W season.
This combination of shoulder padded blazer and acid washed jeans is the
perfect tribute to a modern take on the 1980's.
Take a look at the spikes on this helmet! COOL STUFF!
Question to ICONIC creators: Why was ICONIC created?

Answer: ICONIC was created to bring something new to the Middle East. This type of lifestyle store already exists in places like London and New York. We decided that this would be a great ground breaking venture, while introducing the region to unique and trendy designer labels. ICONIC has everything from fashion to electronics, restaurants to salons and more all under on roof.

TIA from Soraya and Ajay
This pick Langa is so incredibly delicious and sexy!
This gown is made of a material that is gives a leather look, but with sequence.
This dress reminds me of the sea.  I love the lace and crystals are stunning!
