Rouge Couture Spring/Summer 2011 at Dubai Fashion Week
I recently came across the collection of abayas and jalabiyas by Rouge Couture that was shown at Dubai Fashion Week. The label is designed by best friends Sara Al Madani from the UAE and Apple Wang from China. The collection is a perfect example of when tradition meets modernity. The collection also brings together Arabian and Chinese design aspects to make each abaya a veritable and original work of art. I absolutely love the unique accents on each piece. One piece featured Alexander McQueen-esque skull bones that ran down the abaya while another had metal embellishments running down the lapel. The collection is perfect for those stylish women who still want to remain modest and each piece is free size so that different figures can feel comfortable in them. I absolutely love this collection because it makes the abaya super edgy and dare I say sexy?
