Colorful caftans, flowing galabeyas, twisted turbans and balloon-like ali baba pants graced the spring runways, as many as there are stars in an Arabian night sky. The great thing about the vibrant and shimmering souk ambiance, is that the style is so close to home.
This fad is perfect for beach summer comfort and reminiscent of ancestral fashion.
ON THE CATWALK
Naeem Khan dress @ Beymen Four Seasons Nile Plaza (perfect for a fabulous wedding)
BCBG Silk Gown @ City Stars (the look but in neutrals)
Gucci Galabeya @ Beymen
Fabulous Dress @ Hip Boutique (looks very similar to a material Elie Saab used in his Spring/Summer 09 collection on three of his dresses)
Diane Von Furstenburg patchwork skirt @ Beymen (something a little more figure flattering)
Caftan @ Hip Boutique
Paul & Joe Caftan @ Beymen
Karen Millen @ City Stars (a more simple version of the fad)
PS. Sfera @ CityStars has a more neutral galabeya dress that is off white with gold sequins around the neckline. Among my favorites, unfortunately no picture.
