Paris, France – Lebanese couturier Tony Ward has created his new couture collection as a tribute to red carpets and special occasions. With that said, one should not show up at his show expecting to see daywear and sensible suits for quiet lunches. You won’t find them. But what you will find are elegant gowns that any woman would love to include in her wardrobe.
Tony Ward creates gowns with long sleeves. In spite of the cold associated to the winter season, the couturier includes many sleeveless creations as well as halter tops, off-the-shoulder looks and corseted figures. Short lengths are present in small numbers. Here length dresses and full bloom bottoms to the ankles dominate the collection.
Tony Ward spares no expense in the confection of his dream gowns: Swarovski elements, chiffons, duchess satin, organza !
