Spring Edition 2019
Spring 2019 became an important season for the international fashion designers who showcased during the 7th edition of Monte Carlo Fashion Week in Monaco, the hotspot of the French Riviera.
MCFW has been gaining in prestige with the participation of an increasing number of international buyers, fashion editors, press, bloggers and influencers (as well as VIP guests) attending the exclusive runway shows, fashion hubs and glamorous social events.
They all came to discover the creations of new and emerging talented designers including two who design completely different styles. They come from different continents but presented their collections on the same runway of MCFW.
Fashion curator, Veronica Sheynina, presented a remarkable selection of international emerging designers.
The New York based brand, Diana Mahrach Couture, is known for luxury, quality and heritage as well as sophistication and eye-catching elegance. The collections are created in New York by the Morroccan designer, Diana Mahrach, who mixes Middle-Eastern charm with a new fashion-forward vision. The designer favours beautiful fashion silhouettes and high quality design, focusing primarily on high couture evening and bridal wear.
Showcasing in Monte Carol definitely influenced the mood of the collection. Mahrach’s models were like luminous mermaids emerging from the waves and promenading along the seaside.
Her splendid evening dresses in silk were finely embroidered and covered with crystals giving them a translucent shimmer.
Royal semi-transparent gowns by Diana Mahrach with plunging necklines provided a hint of a flirt risk but never overstepped the line of pure elegance. Wearing one of these fantastic creations would transform any woman into a million-dollar mermaid.
A totally different styled designer from Saudi Arabia, Dana Al Nohait, showed her new Glidah Resort collection during MCFW. The fashion brand was founded in 2018 and is a bohemian high-end womenswear brand.
Glidah’s mood is influenced by Dana’s personal style. Saudi fashion is always focused on items that are unique and feminine.
The second line of the brand is Crème by Glidah, which creates summer dresses, linens and resort wear with the same boho-chic mood and luxury style of Glidah.
Dana Al Nohait is the first Saudi Arabian designer to showcase at Monte Carlo Fashion Week. Her collection includes broderie anglaise caftans, ruffle-trimmed robes and baby-doll maxi dresses, finely decorated with flirty fringes.
All looks could certainly be worn as swim cover-ups but would feel refined enough for the city too. They’ll definitely fulfill a lot of women’s fantasies of dressing casually and elegantly on vacation, even when not at the seaside.
The natural fabric colour palette is drawn by taupe, blush, cream, olive and light blue. The warm and relaxed feeling when wearing a Glidah creation is the clue to turn on the vacation mood during the whole spring/summer season.
For the complete summer look, Glidah models wore gold shimmering jewels from the Roman jewellery designer, Giulia Barela.
