Jordan Fashion Week kicked off on March 29th, and here are some of the designers that championed the opening shows.

Bringing together designers for all across the region, the three-day fashion event founded by Luxury Consultant Shirene Rifai celebrates talent across the Middle East.

 

And the first day was no disappointment, with many explosive opening shows from key designers.

The first day kicked off with a showcase of Jean Louis Sabaji Couture Collection and Tufenkjian Jewerly Mahmoudia.

 

The day proceeded with the following shows: ZAY, Ayesha Dabbas, Zainab Al Kisswani, tRASHY Clothing (by Shukri Lawrence & Reem Kawasmi & Luai Al- Shuaibi & Omar Braika & Sereen Khass) Sara Mansour, a presentation by Qamara, Kyte Culture, Hussam Haddadin and Laith Maalouf.

 

 

The highly-anticipated first show of the weekend brought a touch of glamour to the event with metallic tones on evening wear, such as a flowing gold dress with a halterneck and cut out design around the stomach and a striking silver one-shoulder dress.

 

While the Lebanese label is fairly new to the scene, designer Jean Louise Sabaji’s late father was known as a pillar of Lebanon’s glitzy fashion scene during the 1980s.

Elsewhere across the day, another Jordanian designer – Zainab Al Kisswani – presented a stunning embroidered collection focusing on both off-white gowns versus high impact red and pink dresses with wildlife motifs.

 

Sticking within the high-glamour theme was designer Sara Mansour, who has a speciality for bridal and formal gowns. For Jordan Fashion Week 2019, she presented gowns in a rainbow of shades from sunshine yellow to sky blue and intense burgundy.
