WOMEN IN ORIENT SEEN BY CHRISTIAN LACROIX
Detail of a garment at the exhibit L'ORIENT DES FEMMES VU¨PAR CHRISTIAN LACROIX.
Impossible to do any better than a Haute Couture Designer of the stature of Christian LACROIX to introduce the richness of Near East women through their dresses and accessories.
It is a true hymn to oriental womenfrom North of Syria to the Sinai peninsula, with 150 traditionnal costumes .
We are so far from our black dresses coming from Zara or denim jackets from H&M, from our palette of colours we call make-up and our blow-dry quickly done before work.
These women expressed their language, their geographical, social and religious marks and their own personnality through their clothes and accessories, through their intricate make-up and through their jewels.
They really went real far to enhance their beauty.
