Ziad Nakad debuted his Fall/Winter Collection 2016/2017 formal wear collection during Paris Fashion Week, Ready-to-Wear, which stands as a tribute to the audacious and powerful woman; a woman of character, the woman affirmed in its brilliance, free to dress boldly, provocatively, sexy.

From the Designer: The Ziad Nakad Collection pays homage to women: feminine, elegant and sensual. These words stick to its skin, remain in his mind and become the unashamedly provocative formal wear meant to seduce.

Captivating in royal gowns close to the body, bodices that accentuate, figure enhancing, embroidered with finesse, she is a strong woman, full of femininity.

Majestic, seductive, vibrant and confident of herself in royal, aristocratic and sparkling gowns in shades of green emerald, ruby red, blue, grey and sunlight gold.

She is queen of the red carpet.

Sculptor of fabric, Nakad redraw the woman with taffeta, silk, chiffon, guipure and tulle flowing under a crystal rain.

The finest materials harmoniously blend to give life to the muse of Nakad.
