In the very beautiful Algonquin Club of Boston, Firas Yousif chose a wonderful setting to debut his 2015 evening and bridal couture collection. I spoke with a few peers prior to the show and they all anticipated this to be one of the better shows to see during Boston Fashion Week; needless to say, I have to agree!
Mr. Yousif clearly has a focused on eye on what he wanted to deliver on the runway. Even though he used over 15 different models for the show, I felt that there was a doll-face and wide eyed look to all the models that he clearly casted for and absolutely succeeded. The detail on the pieces were gorgeous and they really complemented the various personalities and looks of the models.
The audience was also a very enthusiastic and engaged group that “oooed” and “ahhed” at every design they loved, which I think is nice for a change and makes fashion shows a bit more fun to experience. Take a look at the images below so that you can also “ooh” and “ahh” at the gorgeous designs.
All tickets sales from the show were donated directly to the Algonquin Club Art Preservation Foundation and they also did a special tribute in honor of the late Marylin Riseman.
