The Six: Looks from Michael Cinco’s Dubai show

DUBAI: The Filipino designer closed Dubai Design Days fashion week on Monday night with a show full of glamorous gowns.

Lady in red
Canadian Miss Universe 2018 contestant Marta Magdalena Stepien took part in the show wearing a strawberry-red dress with feathered accents on one shoulder and a daring, hip-high slit.

Pretty pastels
This gorgeous gown is ever so reminiscent of French brand Balmain’s luxury beaded designs with one refreshing difference — the pretty pastel color scheme.

Statement maker
The full skirt of this show-stopping gown is a talking point with its marbled print that almost looks like a blood moon. The over-the-top feather sleeves don’t hurt either.

Fit for a princess
Baby pink, light as air feathers swept the runway with this extravagant ballgown. The sparkling bodice features full, tight sleeves and a deep cut at the neckline for that extra quirky kick.

A dramatic choice
A ballgown that could easily be worn by the mysterious Queen Titania — Shakespeare’s fairy queen in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” — this dress is sure to turn heads with its butterflies and dark glamor.

Fringe Benefit
The galactic color scheme and glittering fringe on this minidress work together to make it a stunning choice for an epic evening out.

DUBAI: Beyoncé has given another nod to Arab fashion designers with her recently released music video ‘Spirit’ – one of The Lion King tracks – where she was spotted wearing a custom piece by Lebanese-American designer Norma Kamali.

Kamali took to Instagram to share her excitement about dressing Beyonce and thanked her team for working on this project.

She wrote to her 62,000 followers, “BEYONCÉ THE LION KING. So happy to be a part of the visuals so beautiful thank you. And to my team Marissa Katia Mario and jimmy for getting it done!!!”


The star has previously shown love to Arab designers by wearing a fierce lioness-themed costume to the Wearable Art Gala in Santa Monica last month, a creation from Lebanese designer Georges Hobeika.
