AAVVA launched their first Ramadan Collection in Galeries Lafayette yesterday. Founded by Ahmad Ammar and Vincenzo Visciglia the brand brings architectural insights into fashion. In line with their concept of simple, artistic fashion, the newRamadan Collection focuses on the spirit of the holy month, creating beautiful pieces that are just as elegant and fancy as the previous collections by the brand.
The exciting new range, comprising of 12 looks is seen to move the color palette to earthy shades with neutrals in rich luxurious tones as well as fluid fabrics, all formulated for the perfect look for summer. The pieces are made using a combination of light velvet, light neoprene, chiffon, silk and tulles; these fabrics are not only easy to wear but also easy to maintain. The “balloon sleeve” trend is seen complimenting the architectural cuts, establishing a very chic yet feminine feel.
Brazilian designer, Vincenzo Visciglia spoke more about creating this range inspired by the spirit of the season with youthful, energeticdesigns that celebrate art. He said, “With our belief that fashion is beyond outfit, we always create with art, our perception and of course the on-going trends. We go from Color blocks to the glorious sun shining on Dubai skyline and all the way to subtle fabrics – we think creativity and art inspiring from all around us.”
The event at Galeries Lafayette saw dedicated fans of the brand join the fun-filled evening with talented designers Ahmad and Vincenzo. The preview saw the collection displayed between rich, traditional Middle Eastern setting, with all elements of the Arab culture heavily visible.
