From the first thousand years of Islam, since the first revelations to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to the great Islamic empires of the eighteenth century, Islamic civilisation flourished, it fostered the development of a distinctive culture with its own unique artistic language that is reflected in art and architecture throughout the Muslim world. Surface patterns on works of art created in the Islamic world have been prized for centuries for their beauty, refinement, harmony, intricacy, and complexity. The four basic components of Islamic ornament are calligraphy, vegetal patterns, geometric patterns, and figural representation. Geometric motifs were popular with Islamic artists and designers in all parts of the world, for decorating almost every surface, whether walls or floors, pots or lamps, book covers or textiles. Islamic artists combined geometry with existing local traditions, creating a new and distinctive Islamic art that expressed the logic and order of the universe. This work presents the unique art designed and developed by this culture over it’s history. Visit my website @

Rami Kadi Couture Fall 2015

Fireflies all over. That was the essence of Rami Kadi’s inventive couture collection. And for good reason: “I have a phobia of bugs, and I was looking for a way to relieve my fear,” the young designer confided. And he found his therapy in crafty embroideries.
Kadi braided threads to recreate the insects’ shape on long and regal A-shaped dresses covered in lace, mimicking a spider’s web. And he used sequin material that was laser-cut in the shape of beetles and appliquéd to cozy mohair column dresses.
Kadi conjured various patterns on black-and-white numbers, including festive minidresses with built-in capes or trains lined with ostrich feathers. When he turned off the lights at the salon of the Plaza Athenée, the ensemble of 13 looks let off a warm glow — just like real-life fireflies. Bugs never looked so chic.
