From the 3rd to the 16th of October, Harper’s Bazaar hosted their annual Fashion Fortnight at Mall of Emirates. This year there were a variety of designers showcasing their new collections, from Locally based designers such as Etoile Boutique and DAS, to international designers like Tommy Hilfiger, Kate Spade and DKNY.
Here are a few illustrations of my favorite pieces from some of the collections on the catwalk this year.
Kate Spade was a particularly important show as the new york based designer has just opened up stores in Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates recently. Their collection had retained that famous signature polka dotted look, playing around with the sizes of the polka dots and mixing the prints together to create a collection that was fun, wearable and with youthful a joi de vivre look to it.
Juicy Couture had some very unique pieces. My favorite being a tailored fuschia pink blazer with black piping – which also came in a gorgeous navy and cream variation. Juicy Coutures collection featured alot of citrus brights teamed up with animal prints, fake fur jackets and stoles and coloured skinny jeans.
I love the way they teamed the smart corporate tailored grey jacket with a black and white striped polo neck and that unexpected peek of bright yellow stripes just at the cuffs.
Floaty printed Kaftans, flowing fabrics and swirling prints were prominent in the Etoile collection this year. My favorite was this beautiful tweed monochrome textured jacket. Very Parisian chic!
