Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika presented a Princess Swan dream-like couture collection in Paris today.


The fantasy-level gowns with the most luxurious detailing were all a welcoming site for fans of the house who love the intricate sequins, complex beading, eye-catching embroidery, full skirts and wow texture – like the feather dresses that flew out onto the runway.

As a master of the red carpet, Hobeika is an expert at creating dresses that express woman’s inner beauty and the playful nature, while also balancing it with grace and elegance. He loves to use lavish fabrics, and this season it was the velvet in shades of emerald green and royal purple that drew in the eye, while the shimmering blue dress with a swan motif captured the modern-day princess mood.


Despite the heavy fabrics and embroidery, the pieces offered plenty of movement, especially the mini beaded Twenties dress, tiered tulle skirts and floor length glittering gowns with daring thigh splits.



The pièce de résistance was the wedding gown with a full pleated skirt decorated in embellishment while the sleeves remained sheer with the top half covered in delicate feathers. If this is not a magical princess wedding gown, we don’t know what is.
