Marie-Antoinette was known for being the "queen of fashion". Supported by her stylist, Rose Bertin, the queen revolutionized women's clothing in the eighteenth century, and continues to inspire creators even today as we can see in this exquisite collection by Georges Hobeika.

The silhouettes are perfectly defined and feminine. Transparencies and embroidery are the result of a balanced collection embracing harmony and seduction. Lilies are embroidered on dresses reminiscent of the French royal court. The flowers are printed on silk organza or embroidered with glitter. Refined craftsmanship created multi colored droplets in reference to the the many fountains that adorned Versailles.

Keeping the essence of Marie Antoinette, this collection is breathtaking and Georges Hobeika has once again created poetry in fashion.
