Egyptian actress Dalia El Behery, a jury member of the 6th edition of Aswan International Women Film, donned an elegant black dress during the festival’s closing ceremony.
The dress was designed by the famous Egyptian designer Mohamed Samy. It was created by authentic Egyptian tulle bi telli, an art Upper Egypt is famous for.
El Behairy’s look came in a refined elegance that resembles a butterfly. The design relied on employing the netting on the innovative flowing sleeves.
In a statement to “SEE”, Samy stated that it took him about two weeks to create the dress between planning the design and executing it while it took him about a month and a half to implement the Tulle.
*The beauty of tulle and black color
The designer spoke about the reason behind selecting the black color for the dress.
He pointed out that black is the king of colors and is an enchanting color, noting the beauty and luster of the tulle can only be highlighted in black.
*Shining in tulle
El Behairy loves sophistication. She has worked in modeling for several years and loves the art of hand-made due to studying at the Faculty of Tourism and Hotel Management and appreciates all that is Egyptian-made.
The design comes within the framework of Samy’s interest in reviving the traditional fashion, especially the tulle.
It also falls within the designer’s keenness to stop stereotyping the netting and present it into high-end designs in line with the luxury fashion houses in concept and quality.
