In thirty pieces, Al Ali's sartorial narration is clear, textured and dreamy, perfect for the warmer months to come. The first look, a ruffle layered dress in cream with gold detailing that is short in the front revealing the legs, has an A-line full skirt in the back.

Known for its embellished details and flamboyant silhouettes, this collection is no different. The looks are feminine and captivating, melting the hearts and minds of many women, but most importantly, they feel beautiful in whatever silhouette they feel most comfortable in.

He takes great pride in his work, controlling every detail of a dress before it hits the catwalk or is revealed in a presentation, hawk-eyed Al Ali makes sure that no thread is misplaced, no train is knocked over, and every wrinkle is pushed away. Shoulders back, head held high, there is a regality and healthy pride he has for his creations. He makes quality pieces and this collection is the perfect example.

His color palette choice of light pastels offers a dreaminess, and that, in combination with artful silhouettes, is the connection to Greek stories in the collection. "He plays with the softest shades of sky blue, mist green, lavender, champagne beige and blush pink, alongside sparkling silver and gold colors," the house shares in notes.

And his use of satin, muslin and brocade, tulle and organza are part of the mythological story he tells. For shimmering gold and silver accents, and beads are combined with feathers to add shape and movement.
