LILI BLANC - RTW ss23
An intrepid explorateur, a savvy urbanite, a self-made woman… these were the sort of muses UAE-born designer Sabrina Mouhieddine of Lili Blanc spoke to with her spring summer 2023 ready-to-wear show. Named “Reflection”, the season’s teaser featured women in blazers and top hats wandering through nature, underscoring a journey towards self-awareness and empowerment. This continued on with a lineup of uptown leather ensembles, trenches, vests, and skin-embracing outfits that set the tone for the fifth day of Arab Fashion Week.
LILI BLANC - RTW AW22/23
The designer of this brand is Sabrina Mouhiedin. After leaving her corporate job in 2020, she embarked on her fashion journey. She was always encouraged by her father to become her own boss. Being Dubai-based, she understood that there was a gap in the market for exceptional conservative wear. Sabrina believes in every adversity lies a seed of equal or greater opportunity. She named her brand LiLi after the flower. She admires its beauty and strength of it. This Arab Fashion Week will give an exclusive peek into what she has planned for the upcoming season.
Sabrina is a master of inventive and modern silhouettes. Black and white is a prominent theme in her collection for Fall-Winter 2022/23. The overall feel of the collection is exuberant, with many 90’s inspired silhouettes. Baby-doll-like dresses with sweet tie closures at the neck were delightful and chic. The asymmetrical pants in her 3-piece suit set were innovative. Less is more for this Fall collection, as noticed in the details and construction. Minor slits and v-cuts throughout the collection denote a minimalist direction that most fashion houses prefer for Fall. The lengths are very retro, like Bermuda shorts and mini skirts. The traditional darts in blouses are seen but on cropped silhouettes.
The LiLi Blanc collection for Fall-Winter 2022/23 has clean lines and quality basic fabric; nothing but the essentials. There are a few exaggerated collars on her red-colored pieces, but every piece was conservatively uniform. Lili Blanc understands how important high-quality ready-to-wear fashion is. Investment pieces are the foundation of great style based on the trends now. Creating traditional silhouettes with a subtle edge is a constant throughout all the fashion seasons. Lili Blanc fashion is a perfect addition to any woman’s wardrobe.
