Bright basics are a springtime staple, and are versatile when paired with black and neutral colored basics. Shift dresses are easy to thrown on under a leather jacket and bright matching heels, and also look great on their own for a night out.
Recently, I came across a beautifully designed dress by Krikor Jabotian, and immediately needed to see more of his designs.
Krikor Jabotian, Spring/Summer ’14
Krikor is a Lebanese designer who attended l’Ecole Superieure des Arts et techniques de la Mode in Beirut before working in Elie Saab’s creative department. Shortly after, he began his own atelier at the young age of 23, creating beautiful wedding and couture gowns at his family-owned business.
His work truly speaks for itself, and the designs are indescribable.
If you are interested in ordering his couture gowns, you can send him your measurements after being properly fitted, and order one of his gowns featured in his collection. There is also the option to work with Krikor to create your own gown inspired from one of his collections, but you will need to travel to his atelier in Beirut to discuss and be properly fitted by the designer. Prices range from around $12,000 to $13,500.
This designer is one to keep in your radar. What do you think of his gowns?
Yaz Bukey, ottoman queen and Parisian designer, is my new favorite person. Of course, I’m not alone in this- Bjork bought out Yaz Bukey’s entire first collection. Her namesake line, Yazbukey, is filled with unique, tongue-in-cheek pieces that poke fun at celebrities, and have an playful, cartoon-like appeal that makes the inner 6 year old in me squeal with excitement.
Yaz Bukey started out working at Jeremy Scott, Givenchy (alongside Alexander McQueen), and worked at Maison Martin Margiela, but her style is completely her own. Check out some of the photos from her Spring/Summer ’14 collection, titled “Fabulous Market” below.
Just try to tell me your not obsessed already, too. Check out her collections at her website here.
