We're well into the New Year, and it seems that Middle Eastern designers are gaining more recognition than ever before. First, Emirati national Khalid bin Sultan Al Qasimi delivered his latest menswear collection during Men's London Fashion Week, Gigi Hadid was spotted wearing Sandra Mansour's designs, and Beyoncé donned two Middle Eastern-made gowns in less than 24 hours over the Grammys weekend. 

Now, Rami Al Ali is in the spotlight as the Syrian designer was in Paris to present his Spring/Summer '18 couture collection at the Hotel Ritz Paris. 

Blending fine craftsmanship and the utmost luxury savoire-faire, the collection was as haute as it was dreamlike with a series of gowns made with the designer's signature feminine aesthetic. The couture collection packed a powerful punch thanks to pastel hues, rich fabrics, voluminous silhouettes, traditional embroideries and romantic elements.
