The Spring Summer Collection had Australian IMG model star Devon Windsor open the show in a gorgeous white lace jumpsuit, bringing a breathe of fresh air into the summer season.  With sleeked back hair and nude make up the models looked like a dream in gold embellished two pieces and sheer gowns that shimmered with white embroidery.  Moving from sky whites, to dramatic black lace two pieces with stand out gowns into luscious light and airy pinks, blues to sunset gold’s and purples. Finishing the collection he ended with a strapless wedding gown, that floated down the runway covered in pearl flower embellishments in true Zuhair fashion.

Zuhair presented this collection as his “Parisian ideal” as he explained to Style.com Fashion journalist Alex Veblan. Just like his wedding dress collections, his Spring Couture takes you into a fantasy, which is exactly what Zuhair does best. When speaking to Fab Sugar he explained that his “collections each season begins with a fantasy or a dream.” (Read the full piece here on Fab Sugar) It’s these feelings and notions that have always made this designer a red carpet favourite with celebrities, especially Jennifer Lopez. Miss Lopez even had her world tour dolls wearing Zuhair’s simmering floor-length gown and jump suit, allowing her fans to take a bit of Zuhair’s and her love for glamour home.
