Move is a collection for all the Lebanese drifters out in the world who have courageously left their loved ones behind, sacrificing family, their motherland and comfort in search of a better life or, in some cases, simple survival. It is for those who are identified as immigrants everywhere they go, always finding a way to resolve the cultural and religious differences that abound. It praises their sense of adventure and also resilience, for they might never find a home away from home.
This diverse collection consists of free-flowing lines and relaxed shapes, open-back details and twisted drapes. Dresses curl and flounce with the energetic freedom of a youthful traveller as floor-sweeping hems make a statement for free-spiritedness. Contoured pleats sway in unexpected directions but the balance always remains. Move is for the drifters who know in their heart of hearts that Lebanon has, at a distance, the capacity to give their dreams wings larger than life. But get too close and it is able to crush them just as easily.
