Arab designer Jean-Louis Sabaji opened the Arab Fashion Week with his SS23 collection in collaboration with the world’s most iconic doll, Barbie. Jean has become the first Arab designer to collaborate with the Matell label, in succession of international labels like Moschino and Balmain.
The collection presented feathers, crystals and Barbie’s iconic ponytail silhouette reflected as cuts and flairs on the designs. Think of voluminous gowns, crystal beading, sequences and heart-shaped material that offers a modern take on the style quotient of the iconic brand.
Jean revealed that the collection is powered by the color pink and its ability to be a powerful tool of self expression. “The collection is designed to celebrate the beauty and strength of women,” he added.
