Frothy dresses in faint blush and dusky grey sweep into the light, as photographer Mila Namida captures one striking shot after the next of Bazza Alzouman’s spring/ summer 20 collection. Featuring fabulously full silhouettes and endless layers of dreamy tulle to swish from side to side, the collection fuses the fantasy of couture with the functionality of ready-to-wear. 

“I’d never really used tulle before,” says Kuwait-based fashion designer Bazza Alzouman. “In the past, most of my collections had been about luxurious fabrics, sleek cuts and clean silhouettes.” Yet for SS20, Alzouman wanted to explore the label’s aesthetic through a different medium.

“I was really in love with this grey tulle and so I wanted to ensure that we didn’t change its transparency by using the wrong lining,” says the designer. “At times I also like to add a little edge if I feel a piece is overtly feminine, so here we used more of a sporty neckline to balance out the fullness and formality of the gown.”
