The Amir Sali collection during the Philippine Fashion Week Holiday 2016 had everyone gawking from start to finish at the sophisticated and classy masterpieces. It was a collection of elegant and exquisite dresses done in white and high-shine gold.
It is not everyday we get to see an impressive line-up that truly captivates the senses. They were exquisitely crafted by a true visionary of the fashion industry.
European-trained Filipino designer Amir Sali is top-notch in every aspect. The industry’s “Prince of Beads” proved his right to the title by showcasing a collection that had no shortage of luster. He played around with shimmer, tassels, and feathers. No two of his gowns are alike! Each is a masterpiece of embroidery, beadwork and other embellishment.
The internationally-acclaimed Filipino master couturier from Jolo, Sulu worked for 17 years in Egypt and in Saudi Arabia, where among his loyal Middle Eastern clientele were the royal families and other Arabian elites. This is probably why his works are so regal in nature. You wouldn't want anything less.
His collection truly wowed the crowd! From royals to runway, Amir Sali lavished the 20th Philippine Fashion Week at Discovery Primea over the weekend with his intricate beadwork on varying shades of white.
One of my favorites is the gown with a very provocative back. It truly embraces the gentleness and power of a woman.
