I was really looking forward to seeing Ziad Ghanem‘s show at Fashion Scout as I hadn’t seen one of his shows for several season as I was usually casting for another show when his was on.
This show was one of my favourite shows. It felt happy, like an event, and it was one! To start with there was a kerfuffle in the photographers’ pit, but the show was like a wedding with an entourage of guests including a child bridesmaid that the crowd adored. What I enjoyed most about the show was the audience participation – when a dress came out that they loved, they clapped and oohed and awed. It was just fun to see people excited about a show!
Last season there was so much talk about diversity on the catwalk and at Ziad’s show there’s nothing but variety, which makes for very consistent casting, oddly enough!
I love his dresses from the back, they are so sensual.
