Lebanon-raised designer Rami Kadi riffed on arabesque patterns for his first couture presentation in Paris after three years in business. “I wanted to come and bring Arabic culture, so I got inspired from everything that has to do with Arabic architecture, and did it in a very modern, trendy, edgy look,” he said.

Arabesque designs popped in rich colors on everything from a beaded dress hemmed in mink to an impressive coat paved in bullion embroideries. They were also laser cut into a skirt.

Striking looks included a long dress with bold geometric patterns in blue, yellow and red, reminiscent of tiles, and a pale blue wedding gown with woven gold-and-silver filigree. The collection — with silhouettes ranging from form-fitting to flaring — was opulent, yet wearable.
