MOJEH join Orkalia Haute Couture for an intimate breakfast and a look at their SS15 collection.

Despite a mouth-watering display of croissants, macaroons and cheeses laid out in welcome, Orkalia Haute Couture draws our attention to the exquisite spring/summer collection that takes pride of place in their showroom on Al Wasl. 

Embroiders working on the Orkalia crop top that takes three people 600 hours to complete.

As well as getting up close and personal with the SS15 collection, MOJEH were there for a sneak peek at the process behind their stunning beaded crop top. Embroiders were on hand with a live demonstration, providing just a snippet of the incredible 600-hour process that takes three people one month to complete. Couture to the very core, the elaborate design offers Dubai residents a sample of Paris studios without leaving the region.

Orkalia's spring/summer collection, including the embroidered crop top.

Created by Iranian-born, Dubai-raised Orchid Ganji, the creative director looks to her own roots for inspiration. Using the rich Persian history as a starting point, before turning to the story of the Garden of Eden – the Orkalia woman is ‘Eve’ in her feminine ideals. With long sleeves and high necks seen throughout the collection, these details are combined with a flash of skin on the back. There is subtlety in the sensuality of the designs, appealing to both the regional woman as well as those that prefer a bit more of a show. Yet one thing is for sure: Orkalia is the brand to turn to if you are looking for a unique take on eveningwear.
