Saudi Arabian designer, Razan Alazzouni, demonstrates a tenacious grasp of sculpture as it relates to fashion with a gorgeous collection for Spring/Summer 2015. While simpler looks, like a flirty embroidered summer dress or a lined silk skirt, might belie the strength of her technique, Alazzouni is quick to change our minds. Her motif was straps, which she used to create criss-cross latticework hemlines and sleeves. The effect is unique and instantly stylish, with the sliced up nature of the elements creating broken lines in the silhouette.

Later, she used shoulder straps across the bicep, which gave her dresses an unexpected off-shoulder effect. In some ways, it recalls flamenco fashion, an idea reinforced by Spanish-inspired silk fit-and-flare frocks later in the presentation. Alazzouni grows bolder as the collection progresses, using sequins, paillettes and tiered ruffles to elicit an aura of feminine luxury from her looks. Although her exquisite gowns and adorable dresses radiate sophistication and elegance, there is a sense of playfulness at work in her optimistic palette and charming decorative elements. When joyous, well-constructed, and thoughtfully embellished pieces await the patrons of Razan Alazzzouni, it seems that spring can’t come fast enough.
