Lana recommends: Madiyah Al Sharqi Fall Winter 2014 Collection

Here’s to regional brand that I’m very proud of and that I’ve been looking forward featuring on L’Armoire De Lana for a while already. Madiyah Al Sharqi offers delicate effortless evening-wear with a hint of an update. When asked about her work, Madiyah describes it to be the perfect mix between traditional elegance and a little modern edge. Also, Madiyah was recently mentioned as “One of the most exciting and promising designers” of the Arab World by Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. 

I discovered her Fall Winter 2014 collection during my stay in Paris for the fashion week. I have to say that I love the skirts, tops and dresses she designed. In few words, I could say that it’s all about timeless silhouettes in very fresh pastel/candy colors. The choice of fabrics is also very refined, the quality of the embroideries is simply incredible.

What is interesting about this collection is that we feel it’s a summer collection, especially with the use of white and candy hues. I love the 1960’s print and the oversized dresses. I also love the delicate beadings and some of the very feminine outfits (like the white top and skirt with a little ruffle). Her approach to the asymmetrical trend is beautiful, creating interesting contrasts between an embroidered fabric and another sheer one.

My favorite outfit from the FW14 collection..so fresh and feminine
