Lebanese designer Rabih Kayrouz debuted his master creation yesterday via a short film titled “320/28” at this year’s Paris Couture Week. Named after his Beirut address and Paris atelier respectively, the five-minute film, directed by Nasri Sayegh, takes viewers on a creative journey, from the conception of Kayrouz’s idea in Beirut to the tangible manifestation of it in Paris. Using 80 meters of burnt orange grosgrain ribbon, 320 meters of cord and 230 hours of manpower, the Lebanese visionary’s singular piece is a testament to the craftsmanship of couture. Intricately constructed with fluid latticework and entirely void of fabric, the gown is showcased not by a model, but by Lebanese dancer Yousra Mohsen instead.
