I won't post the dress as this is one I made, but the fabric belongs here.

Naomi Campbell modeling two iconic bodysuits from Alaļa’s Fall 1990 collection. Embroidered with Arabic calligraphy in the Kufi script, the bodysuits became a uniform amongst several top models during that particular Paris season.

Givenchy’s Designer Ricardo Tisci wearing a t-shirt with Arabic lettering. Tisci is frequently influenced by the Middle East in his work. When he first started designing couture for Givenchy his first major clients were from the region; In May of 1995 Paris-based Tunisian designer Azzedine Alaļa created a Middle Eastern inspired hooded cloak as a maternity dress for Farida Khelfa, his close friend and muse. She was photographed in front of a large mural painted in Arabic calligraphy at the Musee National des Arts d’Afrique et d’Oceanie in Paris.

Thanks! very insteresting! I love the beautifully calligraphic Arabic alphabet. Can you translate what those Chanel dresses say? They were controversial.

That Dolce & Gabbana's collection looks like a cheap copy of Balenciaga. :p I like those Dior dresses.

Always loved this one from Yohji Yamamoto S/S 2002 ..


[stylebistro]

Mostly because it looks so soft and poetic, I remember Tim Blanks asking about that in an interview after the show and Yohji said something like 'when I close my eyes, there is nothing in the world'.. but can't read Japanese or remember the interview and the context to be 100% sure, hopefully runner can translate for us. :p
