At the prestigious Plaza Athénée during Paris Haute Couture Week, Beirut-based designer Rami Kadi presented his Fall 2016 Couture collection themed ‘L’Ombre des Femmes’ (In the Shadow of Women). This luxurious showcase shined a spotlight on the juxtaposition of kaleidoscopic floral appliqués and rainbow-hued sequins against dark details like black braided and embroidered leather and funereal feathers. Each exquisite detail was captured by photographer Patrick Sawaya, who shot the behind-the-scenes footage exclusively for Savoir Flair. The event culminated in a breathtaking bridal look comprised of French chantilly lace, laser-cut flowers, sequins, pearls, beads, and a train that regally spread across the red carpet of the cavernous showroom.
