George Hobeika fashion show also took place at the Palais Tokyo in Paris. I love going backstage to see the clothes up close, so I did. When I met George, I asked him you seem nervous. He said he is and his publicist told me that George is always a nerve wreck before his shows.
It was very different from what Lebanon designers are used to showing us. It had very minimum beading, very flowy lines, some eccentric ideas and a general pale feeling to the colors. This is where I think he got it wrong. In the end its his vision, but I have to say that the combination of mustard, lavender, dove grey and White don’t exactly speak happiness. But then his inspiration was rocks from the natural.
Below are my favoritete pieces from the show.
Having said that, I thought that the designs had some truly brilliant twist. The wedding dress I felt was a piece of art. He is after all one of my favorite designers.
