Jordan-based designer Tatyana Aceeva opened Day 2 of Dubai Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011 with her line titled 'A Return To Glamour'. Her outfits are aimed at ‘the woman who wishes to look effortlessly graceful’.
The collection opened with a number of nude outfits embroidered with black lace. Outfits in varying shades of magenta were followed by gowns in electric blue. Models carried clutches that matched the embellishments on their gowns. Dresses in varying lengths - each outfit aiming to accentuate the classic female form in all its elegance, were presented. Grecian-inspired dresses and wide necks were accompanied by satin bows. Black dresses covered in sequinned patterning were alternated with stiff-pleated bodices and flouncy skirts.
One-shoulder gowns were held up by embellished straps as well as fabric bunched up to form floral design elements. Fabrics primarily utilised were pure silks, chiffons and flowing georgettes with hand-beaded embroidery and crystal embellishments.
Inspired by the glamour of the 1920s and the 1930s, the collection aimed to infuse elements of modern design into classical silhouettes. A debutante at Dubai Fashion Week, the Iraqi-Russian designer presented an elegant 38-piece collection, memorable for its timelessness and wearable appeal.
