Ziad Nakad’s Spring Summer 2020 Couture collection is based around the image of a Warrior Princess, and the celebration of fierceness, softness, determination, ingenuity and compassion that makes up the Modern Day Warrior Princess.

The idea of Atlantis — the "lost" island subcontinent often idealized as an advanced, utopian society holding wisdom that could bring world peace — has captivated dreamers, occultists and New Agers for generations. Ziad brings the two ideas together into one theme, using materials like tulle, silk and taffeta mixed with organza and chiffon, to emphasize the mermaid silhouettes.

The Modern Day Warrior Princesses, have been able to play to the strength of being female, to celebrate their femininity, not to shy away from it or downplay it: crystals, beads, feathers, all handmade details, are underlining all shades of blue, water green, sun yellow, peach and gold.

A hymn to sensuality, as fluid as the sea and as bright as the sun.
