Zareena Autumn-Winter 2014-2015

Please welcome Zareena's Fall-Winter 2014-2015 collection's runway show which was presented during Fashion Forward event in Dubai. The brand's main theme is concentrated in abstract shapes and lines reworked in artistic manner. I personally felt in love with label's choice of daring color combinations, which underline woman's sophistication and femininity. Each gown, outfit has something mystic and outstanding, once you try it on you will feel yourself special and aristocratic. I would say it's a collection of Hello Modern India. The runway was full of ethnic-chic festival outfits, from jalabiyahs to Japanese inspired pleats. You are about to experience Indian oranges and reds, gold threads, arabesque Moroccan caftans, capes and other ceremonial-inspired looks. The clothing comes with simple cuts, traditional silhouettes updated with contemporary details. Love the ethnic influence and traditional arabesque and floral motifs. I would like to share with you the most stunning pieces from the runway:
