Paris, France – Lebanese couturier Georges Chakra took us to the Palais de Tokyo for the presentation of his new couture collection. The body of work for Spring /Summer 2017 is an affair that is defines by light colors, flowers and embroideries.

Georges Chakra calls upon light and powdery colors to breathe fresh air into the season. Pink, blue, yellow, white, etc. are used to give life to his silhouettes of long gowns, short cocktail looks and party dresses. We see first the parade of longer pieces for the more formal occasions. They are brought into existence with tulle, organza, lace and silk. Once the beautiful gown take shape, Chakra embellishes them with exquisite embroideries, appliqu├ęs and ostrich feathers. Amazingly his work includes embroideries and laces that bear the variety of flowers that appear throughout the collection.

In a surprising move, Georges Chakra decided to show first his most formal looks, which concluded with his wedding gown. Then he introduced us to the parade of cocktail and party dresses. These are meant mostly for his younger clientele and former debutantes whose social calendars are becoming more busy.

FAVORITE LOOK: The powdery blue single-shoulder gown in silk crepe. The waist is highlighted in a simple embroidery formation. Its left shoulder features additional embroideries before dripping drown into a floor-length train.
