DUBAI: British Moroccan model Nora Attal walked the runway for British luxury label Burberry, led by creative director Daniel Lee, at London Fashion Week as Saudi Arabia’s Red Sea International Film Festival CEO Mohammed Al-Turki looked on from the star-studded audience.
The catwalk star wore low-waist tailored pants, a cropped printed blouse and a blazer with fur detailing around the sleeves.
Her outfit was part of the brand’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection that was showcased at London Fashion Week.
Thirty-seven-year-old Daniel Lee introduced interlink chain prints and a new vibrant “Knight Blue” color.
Attal and the other models walked a dark green carpet that led into a large marquee, featuring a green, light yellow and white check design in Highbury Fields, North London.
Silhouettes were elongated and accessorized with padded bags in khaki as well as leather structured bags, just like Attal’s, in red, white and green.
The models strutted the runway in blue-soled high heel sandals alongside iterations of Burberry’s trench coat in camel and black with pops of its reimagined classic check print on the collar, Reuters reported.
Burberry’s blue color made appearances throughout Lee’s ready-to-wear brief, including a blue-colored strawberry print on dresses and t-shirts and accented traditional button-downs.
For evening wear, Lee opted for sleek flowy deconstructed floral knit dresses with sheer elements, while chain press tools secured lightweight dresses and outfits into place.
In contrast, the menswear collection featured sharp tailoring and shorts, complimented by patent leather shoes in black, green and brown with prominent silver buckles and belts.
There were also sleeveless leather coats with pops of blue, the same hue featured on London’s iconic Bond Street underground station, which has been temporarily renamed Burberry Street in honor of London Fashion Week.
The 167-year-old luxury fashion house last week launched Lee’s first designs in stores and online, alongside a redesign of its website.
The star-studded event was attended by actress Jodie Comer, Arsenal and England footballer Bukayo Saka, singer Kylie Minogue and British model Naomi Campbell.
From the Arab world, Saudi Arabia’s Al-Turki posed for pictures alongside Campbell.
Egyptian actress and model Huda El-Mufti, who was recently announced as Bulgari’s Middle East ambassador, also attended the show.
