The Oriental Fashion Show, the first and only international project dedicated to the promotion of oriental haute couture born from the creative mind of Hind Joudar, arrives on the catwalk of Milano Moda Donna, in the setting of Palazzo Turati, after the stops in Dubai, Marrakech and Istanbul. An event created in collaboration with the Chambre Monegasque de la Mode in which three famous designers who are inspired by the rich oriental culture and have their roots in it, will have the opportunity to show their creations in front of an exceptional audience.
The speciel guest Jamal I Taslaq from Palestine, Zineb Joundy and Wafa Idrissi from Morocco are the designers who, in their collections, express the quintessence of a millenary culture, born from the ancient wisdom of the craftsmen and embellished by that attention to luxury and glamor that constitutes a profound wealth to be handed down.
Cultures of haute couture since childhood, fascinated by the preciousness of the fabrics and the fine craftsmanship, the Palestinian designer Jamal I Taslaq has chosen Italy and its traditions to give life to his signature of excellence that has his heart in the boutique-atelier on Via Veneto in Rome. His refined creations, protagonists of the AltaRoma catwalks, express the fusion of the two cultures that imbue his creativity, and have conquered stars and kings from all over the world, including Queen Ranya of Jordan.
The most intense and emotional Morocco finds its celebration in the models of Zineb Joundy, the cosmopolitan Moroccan designer whose style has evolved in the shadow of two exceptional mentors, Karl Lagerfeld and Lanvin. The heart of his collections is the caftan, a classic garment open to new luxurious declinations, rich in colors and fascinations in which the traditional heritage from which it originates to renew, once more, its essence of iconic garment explodes, revisited.
A lively and rebellious joie de vivre is celebrated by the creations of Wafa Idrissi, the Moroccan designer interpreter of the new oriental femininity. Her caftans, designed for young and unconventional women, embrace a free creativity in which her clients recognize themselves, in which the special taste for materials, style and elegance translated from her homeland make the difference.
The Oriental Fashion Show is a fashion event that is part of an avant-garde approach to fashion, aimed at putting the diversity of each designer at the center of a global reflection, exploring the fruitful fusion of different identities. Rendez-vous, this is the name of this edition’s project, stands as a real crossroads of cultures, an encounter between Eastern and Western know-how that celebrates that passion for fashion that knows no boundaries.
The soul of a wide-ranging project is Hind Joudar, who has always been passionate about art, history and culture, who, from an embryonic Parisian event dedicated to the oriental leader par excellence, the caftan, and from its variations made by Moroccan stylists, has had the idea of giving life to the Oriental Fashion Show. An event born to pay homage to oriental fashion and its creatives making them a real world heritage to be enhanced and made known with shows that, from Paris, are organized in the most important and representative cities of the world.
The Oriental Fashion Show is the first international event dedicated to Couture and Oriental fashion, which from Paris, the city where it came to life, unfolds in 10 countries in the world to open, for 17 years now, the traditional fashion of interested geographic realities, rich in meaning and history, with contemporary declinations dedicated to an international market. Thanks to its scouting and promotion activities, the Oriental Fashion Show has brought over 150 designers from 50 different countries into the spotlight around the world, pursuing its commitment to enhance the geographical diversity of individual designers and their culture.
