As the spotlights shone for the last evening of Muscat Fashion Week, the fashion pack took their seats for the final time as C’est Moi, Endemage, Ahmed Talfit and Mauzan prepared to unveil their latest collections. Following in the footsteps of their predecessors, the impressive line up of designers certainly did not disappoint in the eagerly awaited finale of this three-day festival of fashion.
Rashmi Kumari, the unstoppable force behind the label, C’est Moi, unveiled an exceptional collection that showed off intricate beadwork and embroidery. Bright and bold colours adorned an array of silhouettes including dreamy flowing dresses that gave a luxury Bohemian feel.
Closely following suit, Omani sisters Lubna and Nadia Al Zakwani – the creative minds behind the Endemage label – mesmerized the crowd with their fashion forward creations that creatively infuse traditional Omani motifs into the core of their collection.
Ahmed Talfit introduced a sculptural, avant-garde collection with powerful silhouettes for the penultimate show. Leather, silk and tulle meshed together magnificently, with particular emphasis on strong shoulders and accentuated waistlines.
Lastly, who better to round off Muscat Fashion Week, 2013, than Rafia Helal Bin Drai? The talented designer behind the Mauzan label captivated the audience for one final time with an inspiring collection of modern, elegant abayas.
As darkness fell on the runway, guests were offered one last chance to view the collections and meet the designers in person at the prestigious Opera Galleria. With another successful year to its name, the question that remains pursed on everyone’s lips is, what will Muscat Fashion Week, 2014, have in-store?
