Algerian fashion designer Ilham Kharbach confirmed Algerian women’s eagerness to dress up and style despite the coronavirus crises.
The designer added that she had faced many difficulties, completing her latest collection due to the lockdown, including difficulties in finding raw materials and labor, as well as challenges to find models and photographers.
* Collection for all ages
Kharbash focused on her Eid collection to present elegant and upscale designs.
“I presented 12 designs, including ones for newlyweds to be at the top of their elegance when receiving family and friends during Eid, as well as other designs for young ladies, and ones for women at the age of forty to fifty years old,” she said.
* Uniqueness and contrast
Each dress has its own characteristics in terms of color and the fabrication, and inspiration.
“Every Haute Couture I present does not repeat itself and is unique as women love exclusivity and excellence,” the designer pointed out.
“I presented a mix between the latest fashion trends and authentic Algerian heritage, which is focused mainly on handmade work, adding seclusion and beauty to the design,” Kharbash noted.
* Vogue and decency
The talented designer offers designs for every veiled woman, and every design, she styles can also suit the elegant veiled woman, whether by making it taller or by adding a sleeveless vest to it.
“There are a lot of methods to convert an ordinary design into one for veiled women. In general, my designs depend on modesty that suits Algerian and Arab women in general,” she emphasized.
* Eid Dress
The Eid dress has a special place in the heart and cupboard of every woman, and in Algeria, it has a special concern.
Kharbash emphasizes that in the Eid gatherings, the women are enthusiastic about their elegance.
In Algeria, newlyweds are the keenest to look in their best form likewise, women in their forties and fifties are interested in wearing vibrant and valuable designs.
And because Eid is a joy that brings the family together, women are keen to look their best for this outing.
