Tony Ward Couture, a fashion house that shows at the Paris Fashion Week, has unveiled a pictorial reflection on the 2020 moments. Tony Ward’s collections are a tribute to women and their feminity, with the taste and distinctive charm of a timeless style. The Lebanese-Italian fashion designer’s creations are present in over 60 stores across the world.

 

While 2020 has been a challenging year on many levels, “we couldn’t but be grateful for the highs and the lows, the bumpy rides and the smooth sailings the slow pace and the fast movements…” said Tony Ward giving Introduction to the reflection.

 

The year 2020 began for Tony Ward with the Couture spring/summer 2020 collection, created around the interesting shapes of Mandalas. The collection was showcased in Paris during Haute Couture week. This was followed by a ready-to-wear fall 2020/21 collection. The picture titled ‘Play’ has the tag line – Each stone had its own story, its own “Hidden Gems”.

 

In March, “our Ateliers shifted from a chain of production, to a chain of solidarity. We felt committed to provide the needs of masks, bed sheets and protective suits to be offered to the hospitals,” said Ward on the difficult month which prompted them to ‘Commit’. Post-lockdown, the design house released a capsule collection for the summer breeze. The picture titled ‘Never Stop’ goes with a tag line – “…moving, at your own pace.”

 

Reflecting on the Beirut explosion of August 4 that killed 204, and injuring thousands of people, the couture house says: “Beirut on August 4 at 6:08 pm. A date that will never be forgotten. We were broken, devastated, shattered into pieces…” It adds in the very next picture: “We owe it to you Beirut. To rebuild, to move forward, to rise.”

 

Moving back to creating and designing, the fashion house released its ready-to-wear spring/summer 2021 collection “Une Nuit A L’Opera”, meaning ‘A Night At The Opera’. This was followed by the release of Bridal 2021 collection ‘Golden Hour’. The picture ‘Grow’ has been described this way: “This year has been a constant reminder that love always wins, it conquers the pandemic; Love doesn’t have a colour, nor a gender…”

 

Next to release was the La Mariée Fall 2021 collection. Titled the ‘Woman of Today’, the collection is dedicated to the woman that speaks her mind and pushes boundaries, who loves unconditionally and lives freely.

 

Couture edit 2021 collection—the last collection of the year—was designed around Beirut’s endless beat, its flashing lights and the pulse of its people. The pictorial reflection ends with “Now, more than ever, we look forward to filling the blank pages of 2021 together… with nothing but brighter, inspiring days.”
