Watch Rami Al Ali’s Fall/Winter 2014 collection come together, quite literally, in the video below, which grants viewers an in-depth look at how much handiwork goes into making his creations. A glimpse of the mood board sheds light on the inspiration behind the collection, with words like “wild”, “exotic”, and “vibrant” visible, as well as photos of native tribes, jungles, and tropical flowers. Rami Al Ali then traces his designs onto patterns and, after each is cut, they are assembled with their correlating fabrics. They are then decorated by hand by multiple artisans working with microscopic beads and sequins to make the couturier’s vision come to life. After the fabrics are beaded and decorated, they are sewn together on dress forms and shaped and reshaped until they are ready to be fitted on a model. We follow Rami Al Ali every step of the way as his collection for Fall/Winter 2014 transitions from inspiration to sketch to fully-formed garment.
Video Exclusive: The Making of the Rami Al Ali Fall/Winter 2014 Collection
“Taking inspiration from the vivid rain forests of Brazil, my Autumn/Winter 2014/15 collection represents a fusion of colour, fluidity and femininity. The hidden depths of the jungle are revealed through laser cut overlays, voluminous draping and bold silhouettes, whilst the juxtaposition of bright jewel tones and a more muted colour palette nod to the vibrancy and stillness of nature,” the designer tells us.
See the incredible details of this process by watching the behind-the-scenes video, made exclusive to Savoir Flair above.
