Inspired by oriental attire which is characterised by flowing opaque garments that are modest and covering, Haute Couture Dolce and Gabbana (D&G), which is based in Italy, took a bold step bridging cultures by releasing a wide range of the loose, flowing items known in the middle east as Abayas as the latest creations added to D&G stores.

The collection embarks on a fresh take on the traditional Abaya by teaming up the draped gown with flowery notes from the spring 2016 collection, in addition to the sprinkle spirit of D&G.

For the collection, the designers opted for embellished lace, satin and georgette in neutral hues of ivory and black.

The look was kept elegant by teaming up the gowns with statement D&G sunglasses and clutch and oversized tote bags.

The creations were hailed on social media for showing acceptance for diversity and recognising wide sectors that were previously largely ignored among fashion adverts.
