Arabesque Sheilas & Abayas: The Fall/Winter 2014 Collection

Those of you who have been following UNDER YOUR ABAYA since its inception in 2010 will know that I am a big fan of the work of French designer Judith Duriez who is the founder and creative force behind UAE-based haute couture abaya brand Arabesque Sheilas & Abayas (read my first post about the brand here). I have also had the pleasure of meeting her several times while she has been in Doha.
Judith is famous for bringing the fashions and trends of Paris Fashion Week to the world of abayas. For Fall/Winter 2014, Judith has created an abaya collection inspired by the grandeur and romanticism of the Byzantine Empire. Rich fabrics, romantic floral embroidery and intricate patterns are mixed with modern graphic fabrics, and futuristic geometric patterns.
The collection is in line with many of this season's international fashion trends - the monochrome black and white, the architectural cuts and patterns, the earthy and pastel tones, and the floral designs. I'm loving Judith's addition of a winter cape made from wool and jacquard, embellished with French guipure.
