Thursday night I was fortunate enough to attend the Firas Yousif 2013 Bridal & Formal Wear show. The show was held at Emmanuel Church on Newbury Street and it was just beautiful. It was so interesting to be watching a fashion show come down the nave of this historic place of worship.
It’s difficult to see in this photograph but I’m sitting one person down from the woman in white on the right hand side of the runway. I’ve been so fortunate to have front row seating at every show this week.
Although I did some preliminary research on Firas Yousif before the show, I was largely unfamiliar with his designs, and to be honest, I was a little skeptical of attending a bridal show. I’m so glad I did. His designs were incredibly beautiful, and I would die to wear any of them to my own wedding.
This white dress below felt so James-bond to me. I love the deep V neckline and the slit. It was elegant and tasteful but very sexy.
What struck me most about the gowns was the obvious amount of craftsmanship that went into them. Each garment crafted to perfection by an obviously skilled artisan. Firas Yousif’s work is not merely clothing, but art.
This white hi-low gown below was probably my favorite piece. I like designs with a wow factor and this one just blew me out of my seat.
