Having worked in the fashion industry most of my adult life, it is easy to become blasé about new fashion. For designers to really make an impression on me, they have to truly embody style, panache, craftsmanship, even hubris but most of all desirability. It should make me feel that this is something I want to wear and that I just must have it. It is becoming rarer and rarer to find so it brings me such delight when I do come across a designer that ticks all the right boxes.
When I saw the luxuriously embroidered bomber jacket by Samaira Ghani, I just had to have one. So I wondered who is this designer that has created this “must have” item? During my research I discovered that this young British designer designs haute couture evening gowns and wedding dresses worn by Bollywood stars and already featured in Vogue. It all started to make sense. Evidently this is where the quality craftsmanship from the intricate embroidery to the impeccable stitching originate.
What makes her stand out is her insistence on perfection in terms of manufacture and using the highest quality fabrics whether it be a one-off haute couture creation or her Ready-to-Wear collections. Her evening gowns are just stunning; a fusion of eastern and western influences that epitomises elegance, femininity and opulence. Ideal for a red carpet or high society event in Monaco.
But what really appeals to me is her chic casual collection such as her embroidered bomber jacket and the delicate lace embroidered blouse with ruffled chiffon lace cuffs for every day wear. I can already picture myself sitting at the Grill in Monte Carlo enjoying the beautiful vista of the Mediterranean whilst sampling the best that Monaco has to offer.
