COLLECTION| House of Evolution: Nadine Merabi AW12

Nadine Merabi’s House of Evolution showcase was in stark contrast to the eccentric collection of Zeynep Tosun who had shown just minutes earlier.
Shimmering, silk gowns made their way down the catwalk with grace to the gentle soundtrack of  a softly played piano.
Dresses were white, aubergine, silver and grey, with halter-necks, and open-backs, shaped to cut a streamlined, discreetly seductive silhouette.
Animal elements were delicately incorporated with soft, silver snake print and white feather collars. Rows of crystals added sparkle, whilst hemlines narrowed into fishtail skirts.
The collection closed with a floor-sweeping evening dress, with pearl-embellished, leaf details meeting at the back, exposing skin in a manner that was tastefully tantalising, showcasing a self-assured femininity.
