Maison Rabih Kayrouz is no stranger to killing the game at Paris Couture Week, and this year’s show was no exception. Monday marked the fashion house’s 20th anniversary, and the show was celebratory in every sense.

The Lebanese designer took to a greenhouse in the French capital to present the collection. Entitled “Hamdela 2020”, the collection was just as upbeat as the mood filling up the space, with a bright and bold colour palette and both structured and ruffled dresses and trousers true to the essence of the house.
The best bit? One of the dresses was made without the use of fabric. According to WWD, the couturier challenged his team to create the dress using only strips of ribbon, weaving them together– and the end result did not disappoint.
The models strutting down the runway were just as impressive, featuring a diverse cast of Arab faces, in an ode to the region.
“We are filling [the greenhouse] with 20 years of passion 20years of hard work. Thank you to all people who I met for the last 20 years thank you for filling me with such love and inspiration… love to all” wrote Kayrouz in an Instagram post.
