Elie Saab celebrated the magic of femininity, with supple silhouettes and sequined details. A sea life theme dominated the catwalk with draped asymmetrical dresses, as well as deep blue colors. Corals were embroidered on delicate gowns making them shimmer. The creations were whimsical and dreamy, and would make any one wearing them transform into a royal mermaid.

The sea life and underwater theme seemed to also be present in Zuhair Murad’s designs. In his dramatic collection 80s inspired silhouettes and opulence flairs dominated the runway. Murad kept the theme subtle throughout, evoking the feel of the ocean with ruffled dresses and lots of blue. He is known to be more sensual in his style of dresses and that was shown with is sequined silk tulle pieces, and long figure hugging shapes.

As if that wasn't thoughtful enough, Hadid made sure to commission Pop-Up Florist to create a floral recreation of the cover of Malik’s third studio album “Nobody is Listening” to go alongside the multi-colored balloons that decorated the space.
