In addition, Chanel, Dior, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Giorgio Armani and Valentino are also invited to display their autumn and winter series of . Naturally, many Lebanese designers want to develop their career in Paris. Basil Soda said in an interview with Agence France Presse that Paris is the mother of Lebanese designers, and we are deeply influenced by Paris culture. Although Lebanese designers are deeply influenced by Paris culture, Soda, Chakra and Saab has already expanded its customers to the whole world, especially the trans-Atlantic customers. Last month, Sweden’s Princess had worn the clothes designed by Elie Saab for two times in her wedding ceremony. Stars and celebrities like Emily Blunt, Sandra Bullock, Kate Perry, Scarlett Johannsson, and Helen Mirren choose invariably Lebanese designers’ clothing in their Red Carpet Show.

Through continuous improvement of his own design ideas and processes, strengthening self-requirement, Georges Chakra has made up his deficiencies in the past five years and won the respect of his colleagues. Georges Chakra, inspired by nature, find his design ideas in the endless veins of chiffon, tulle, yarn, silk and other silk goods by employing a collection of organic geometry. Through his wonderful imagination, he finally steps in the Fashion Council.

Georges Chakra’s designs employ a large number of luxurious decoration, such as gold, silver, velvet, etc. which is just the same as dance dress. Her screen goddesses are Rita Hayworth and Greta Garbo which also makes his design full of Hollywood style in 50s of the 20th century. He implants pearl sequins in cocktail dress and makes use of lotus leaf, folding scissors, flower and so on. His hue is mainly neutral, such as black, gray, white and so on. As for his structure, he prefers to emphasis the carful dealing with woman’s shoulder and waist. In an interview with Agence France Presse, Georges Chakra told AFP that he wanted to create a strong and confident feminine image. “They’ve been to many places, and give people a sense of mystery and inaccessible.”

The excitement surrounding the Spring/Summer shows was palpable and the season’s work turned out to be far more ambitious and adventurous than those that had come before.

This season is Fall/Winter ,but one day we’ll let next season start before we began looking beyond it.We’re already looking beyond it to Spring/Summer .We glad to present you the latest trends in fashion industry,latest collections and all about fashion of season .

The Versace Theatre in the Piazza Vetra had been laid to grass like a playground,decorated with swings,a slide,a roundabout and a climbing frame.

The collection was a fun and funky riff on Kane’s own Glaswegian roots,mixed with the body-con silhouette versus the flirty,short skirt theme he has made a signature at London Fashion Week.

Clashing plaids in yellow/red and blue/red encased the body in skinny trouser suits, or in tightly-wrapped, over-the-knee dresses, or spilt out in short, godet-mini skirts, with bra-tops. The clash of the tartans went further, when blue and yellow miniature floral prints were added to the mix, as in an off-the-shoulder wrap or waist basque on a curvy, fitted dress, or were used to fill in the godets on swingy little skirts, with apron details, and strapless bodices, with a stretch-mesh and plaid cardigan over the shoulders.

Several key trends stood out amongst the S/S11 shows. The first of these was a clever new take on colour blocking, where the main base colour of choice was tan and nude or for others (such as Nicole Farhi) midnight blues and sea greens. These base colours were then accented with neon hues, which, when done successfully, produced striking effects.

Many designers seemed to be using lime, a staple colour carried forward from last spring-summer, in addition to the colour of the season, canary yellow. Christopher Kane took the neon trend even further, using laser-cut leather to jazz up his neon outfits. Others such as Maria Grachvogel and Emilio de la Morena showed infinitely more wearable ways of following the trend, Grachvogel with a canary yellow silk top tucked into nude, high waisted trousers and de la Morena by using triangular patchwork like colour flashes.
