Think old school couture meets Brazilian burlesque add some blouses on boys and a dash of vibrant print and you only get a hint of the story. Personal favourites included his show-stopping corsets, couture inspired dresses and flamboyant dandy suits.
Celebrating the art of undressing Ziad’s models were as diverse as his designs from the bold and heavily tattooed to the plus plus size and a lot more in-between. The designer commented: “I cast my models for their personalities and attitudes and not just their looks.”
