Designer Shatha Essa is representing a new wave of evening wear with her debut Noir collection that is the blend of classic gowns and modern tailoring.
Inspired by her snowy visit to the gardens of Chateau de Versailles, the feminine and delicate collection captures that magical moment of snow fall with the use of crystal patterns on a colour palette of blush, pink, ice blue, cream and white.
Luxury is seen in the silk, tulle and organza fabrics that are adorned with swirls of pearls and cascading crystals. Feminine silhouettes take shape in A-line dresses, ball gowns and embellished capes. She brings a contemporary twist through the menswear inspired evening separates such as wide leg pants, roll neck shirts and organza sleeveless vests.
Our top pick is the white cape gown embroidered with tone on tone crystals and pearls, timeless elegance at its best. The debut collection for Shatha Essa Noir will be available on Moda Operandi from November 14 until November 30.
