Bridal and couture fashion designer Ziad Nakad went all out with a stunning display at Paris Fashion Week. The latest designs – featuring intricate gowns in blush tones and richer hues – were inspired by ancient Greek deities and created for strong women to wear. Which is precisely why the season’s collection is called “Demeter.”
For his Spring/Summer 2018 Couture collection, Lebanese-born designer Ziad Nakad “decided to celebrate the ‘Goddess of Wheat’ and ‘Mother of the Earth,’ Goddess who gathers the fruits of the earth and offers them to humanity; its cult is particularly flourishing in the countries where this wheat is found in abundance, in Sicily, in the region of Eleusis, in Crete, in Thrace and in the Peloponnese,” according to a press release.

If you were blown away by the pieces in this showing, you will be utterly transported behind the poetic inspiration driving the designs.
“Like a bird flying over the harvests, perfectly free, crossing a colorful sky, resplendent and singularly geometric: the pale blue of the firmament mixes with the yellow and gold of the wheat, the green of the earth, the coral of the ocean and the bronze trees at sunset,” the brand explained about the colors and fabrics. “Wheat ears dot the dresses, a tribute to the most iconic representation of the goddess Demeter. Dress after dress, Ziad Nakad plays a subtle game that celebrates life in a precise mastered know-how and silk embroidery sublimated tulles.”
