On Saturday, 27 January, Hani Al-Behairi's Spring and Summer 2018 haute couture soiree collection, titled “Oriental Fashion Show,” received great acclaim by celebrities attending Paris Fashion Week at the Crillon Palace.

The show marked another triumphant cooperation of Al-Behairi and his partner, beauty expert Mohamed Al-Sagheer, who styled the hair and did the make up for 25 French models who adorned Al-Behairi's 35 soiree designs, a bridal gown, and a Pharaonic gown on the runway.

Al-Behairi used shimmering fabrics like taffeta, silk and lace, adding to that golden, sun-like embroidery where East meets West.

The surprise was French actress Elisa Bey, who decided to walk on the ramp in Al-Behairi couture, refusing to make an appearance at any other fashion show during Fashion Week.

Al-Behairi received many nods of admiration from the organisers and the praise of an Italian organiser labelling his show as the best in 2018, matched by media coverage and interviews with top haut fashion magazines that included photo shoots with top French models in Parisian streets.
