Aly Fawaz's collection - Contessa, inspired by Marilyn Monroe, was a vibrant collection that is both elegant and futuristic.
The show opener was a strapless gown of layered black tulle, held at the waist with a metal belt and a flowing train.
Sensual gowns in fuchsia and parrot green were set off by jewelled bodices and ruffles. Completely bejewelled cowl neck dresses saw silver chained tassels over lines of crystals covering the fabric. Gold and silver outfits with encrusted bodices of sequins, crystals and chains were combined with frills and ruffled skirts.
Metal appliqués were used to cinch waists and line the necklines of the sensual gowns. A white and blue outfit with a pearl covered bodice and a bunched floral skirt won audience appreciation.
The three bridal outfits that were showcased, all carried a heavy floral theme as floral appliqués were alternated with satin roses and fabrics bunched into floral figures. The elaborate designs on the veil were restricted to the area covering the head, allowing the simple tulle trail to balance the heavily embellished bodice.
