Sparkles, florals and blocks of color dominated the runway last Wednesday as Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain presented their Spring Summer 2017 collection at the Middle East flagship store in City Centre Bahrain. With over 250 guests, the area was completely transformed from one of the most prestigious, luxury department stores into a glittering fashion catwalk, setting the tone for this season’s hottest trends. Fashion lovers, VIPs, trend seekers, and style influencers sat front row to catch the latest looks from some of the world’s most sought-after brands.

The inspiration for the Spring Summer 2017 fashion show was none other than sparkles, and oh how they “sparkled the runway” with gorgeous collections showcased on a glistening catwalk.

Secret Garden, Block Party and Metallic Moments were three themes that dominated the runway, showcasing everything from floral and animal inspired, to pops of color and shimmering metallic pieces. Fashion lovers feasted their eyes on various trends such as crystal jewels, denim, lace, stripes and polka dots, featuring an exciting range of styles to admire. Staying true to the theme, all cocktails were also coated in a sparkling sugar rim for guests to enjoy.

The show featured over 20 international designers and some key regional designers to highlight all that is fashion forward, such as Chloé, Herve Leger, Saint Laurent Paris, Tadashi Shoji, Balenciaga and Red Valentino to name a few. Giorgio Armani makeup artists worked their magic on the models leaving them with a radiant glow, sparkling silver eyes and lush glossy pink lips, pairing perfectly with the show’s theme and season’s trends. Showcasing a strong menswear collection, the show displayed a variety of key looks with the perfect mix of street and smart, featuring designers such as Stella McCartney, Juun J, Valentino, Saint Laurent Paris and Z Zegna amongst others.

The iconic “Saks” logo gave way to the creative design for the backdrop set-up, with moving lights and beating music for entertainment, making this show the most sought after fashion event of the season. The affair did not stop there, with an after-party hosted at the Westin Hotel for an unforgettable night celebrating fashion.

The Saks Fifth Avenue Spring/Summer 2017 Collection is now available at Saks Fifth Avenue, City Centre Bahrain.
