Fifty One East, Qatar’s favorite department store, hosted a Carolina Herrera Spring 2017 fashion presentation, which included three gowns made exclusively for the partnership.
The Spring 2017 collection is a statement on the style codes of Carolina Herrera. Tailoring softened by feminine details and silhouettes in graphic black and white palette highlighted by metallics – organza, pleated tulle, lace and denim and brocades blend day and high – underscoring glamour is synonymous with Carolina Herrera’s take on elegance. Marking three and a half decades of elegance and style, this season is an authentic expression of the designer’s stand-alone mission. “I want to make clothes that are beautiful and effortless, you don’t have to think about them, only wear them with ease.”
The exclusive gowns included a black tulle gown covered in emerald green and black organza flower embellishment, a royal blue silk faille off the shoulder gown with red, black and white 3D flowers, and a fuchsia silk faille trench dress, a signature to the House, with gold embroidered flowers.
Establishing a globally recognized style aesthetic, Carolina Herrera has resided at the helm of her eponymous label for over three decades. Proving with each new season that effortless elegance paired with modern refinement is always relevant and embraced. Finding resonance on the runway and in the pages of global fashion magazines, Carolina Herrera has become a constant on the red carpet, dressing stars both on the rise and Hollywood’s iconic set such as Oscar winners Renee Zellweger and Sandra Bullock, Salma Hayek, Michelle Pfieffer, Tina Fey, Taylor Swift and Zhang Ziyi.
In celebration of the newly released Rizzoli book, Carolina Herrera: 35 Years Of Fashion, the presentation included an installation highlighting 12 archival designs that epitomize the essence of Carolina Herrera and the craftsmanship and couture pedigree of her New York based atelier. Following the presentation, a two day trunk show was hosted for the Spring 2017 collection at Fifty One East, Lagoona Mall.
