Lebanese-born Rabih Kayrous migrated to Paris at the age of 16 to study at L’Ecole de La Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. He is considered as designer who loves to impress not only by his design pieces, but also the way they are being presented.
If you go to see Godot SS17 collection you will find much more than just a defile. They made it memorable for all the guests paying attention to all the details, even the place chosen, which was a small theatre on the left Bank in Paris, the Théâtre de Babylone.
The collection was performed by ballerinas from the Paris Opera Ballet including a solo from Marie-Agnès Gillot, who also choreographed the show. Guests were fascinated by pure elegance of the show which seemed a genuinely fitting presentation of Rabih Kayrous clothes.
The next time Kayrouz has considered an alternative performance to express his designs was Fall’17 prêt-à-porter collection. Model cast included friends and not just professionals, and as Rabih Kayrouz said, nothing was rehearsed.
You can find coats in wondrously constructed, generous volumes and deconstructed dresses and bright hues among ivory and black. As he explained, the goal was to treat the most basic forms and colours like music notes, composing his own symphony through the new shapes and spontaneous layers.
“I just love clothes, says Rabih Kayrouz. “More than fashion. I just want to make clothes”. Dubai FashionTV likes the way Maison Rabih Kayrous clothes symphony sounds.
