Mariam Daoud, an Egyptian fashion designer, loves the realm of fashion very much.
She always seeks to show a woman wears her design as more elegant and distinguished.
Mrs. Daoud does her best to adopt creative ideas and genius products to design fabulous dresses which inspired by kings and queens from Renaissance period.
Her collection for this summer was inspired by Doves- this quiet bird that symbolizes peace, goodness and love.
For her, a dove is a dramatic hero that tells its story in the dresses she designs.
Pearl, tulle and satin were used to make those elegant dresses.
Leading figures in the realm of fashion set trends, which become a guide to designers during every season.
The designers are keen to formulate the hard equation that appear in designs combine creativity, imagination and vanguard ideas to come among the international trends of fashion to sate the woman.
*Dreams in the inner mind
Dreams are lay in the inner mind in incessant manner but a fine talent should take care of those dreams.
Daoud started her career as an interior architect but she did not relinquish her dream to become a fashion designer.
Her husband, who believes in her talent, encouraged her to go to the leading academies of fashion and be apprentice with senior designers.
After the apprenticeship period, she was able to practice all arts of dressmaking such as broidering, sewing, designing and carrying out the designs.
She presented her first collection in the winter of 2018 to revive Renaissance Age with its elegance and richness.
She released her second collection named: Doves.
The new collection of Daoud includes 17 pieces made of tulle, satin, organza, crepe in five colors: black, off-white, golden and grey, to create the dreamy atmosphere of that collection.
She hadn’t found any difficulty in using this little number of colors because she studied philosophy of colors and their nuances in the Faculty of Fine Arts.
Daoud like other women adorns black and she considers that color has a distinguished meaning as it could be added to another color in the collection with different broidery.
Daoud said that customers come to a designer in two cases: the first one when they want to have a brilliant dress outpaces all in the market and when they suffer from abnormal posturing.
In the second case, the designer makes a dress through her ideas to make the customer appears in dazzling feminine shape to resemble the hourglass, whereas the shoulders are made wide and the waistline lesser.
She pointed out that there are some tricks in designing and sewing to occult the out bursting parts such the bear belly or bigger butts to give the customer an attractive seeming.
*The challenging customers
The challenging customers are those come holding a picture and wanting a design like it.
In that case, Daoud tells that the customer to go a dressmaker.
She shows the dressmaker five of the six designs that customer chooses and know her personal taste.
She designs a dress in line of the customer taste and details of her body to appear happier and elegant.
Daoud got a hand in from foreign models came for that purpose and doves in various colors photo session of her collection.
The photos were taken by Loay Nassar, a professional photographer.
