Fashion Week: NOON BY NOOR: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2014

As Shaikha Noor describes, "Spring 2014 is a continuation on from Resort but this season the collection is more polished and sophisticated with hints of that playfulness from the previous season." The designers envision the Spring 2014 woman as feminine, elegant and confident. She exudes sophistication and a natural confidence in her fashion choices and has a strong sense of self, yet she is also aware of her fun, youthful side which is evident in the way she mixes bold prints and experiments with color.

Silhouettes in the collection range from voluminous jackets and culottes to pencil skirts and dresses. In each Noon By Noor collection, silk in its various forms is always prevalent. Flattering to the feminine shape, it is also a breathable fabric that works well in a hot climate such as Bahrain. This season, the designers have worked with a honeycomb lace and produced some pieces with lace and leather combinations for the first time, creating a great balance between sophisticated and sporty. As Shaikha Haya explains, "In addition to silk, we also like to experiment with leather and luxury skins (such as lambskin). For Resort, we used pink lambskin leather so this season we've continued with colored leather, but this time we're using purple."

The show was attended by VIPs including musician Solange Knowles and Leigh Lezark (wearing looks from the Resort 2014 collection and featured music by The Misshapes, hair by Jorge Luis for PRIVE, make up by Neil Young for MAC Cosmetics, nails by Keri Blair for MAC Cosmetics.
