Fashion Forward Dubai: Bird on a Wire by Rayya Morcos

By  | 

The relationship between hunter and prey is a fascinating one. Rooted not only in the animal kingdom between two different species, the hun is present between creatures of the same species. The hunter so dominating in a situation of power, transforms instantly to become frail and weak when faced with a more powerful creature.

This thin line of transformation is what the collection explores.

A clash of frailty and power is analyzed through transparencies versus stiff, shiny fabrics and spikes and softness whilst keeping a silhouette of a creature ready to either run or jump from its opponent.
