Lebanese designer Jean Louis Sabaji took the kind of risks in his first runway show usually reserved for established designers, those with the resources or clout to be unorthodox.Take, for instance, a black pantsuit Sabaji strung with ringlets that gave the trousers and matching sleeves a stiff, Slinky-like spring. Or look at his various architectural details: the structure built at the top of a cream-colored jumpsuit with dozens of calla lilies or fluid skirts made from braided organza – a signature element in Sabaji's collections. Q: Tell us about this particular collection, which was so clearly inspired by nature?A: In my previous collections, I was always inspired by the dark side of nature. This time I wanted to have a different view of nature: I wanted to create peace.Q: Nature and humans are now at peace?The shape of the skirt [makes it look] as though the beetles are crawling into the dress.Especially in this collection, I introduced some ready-to-wear pieces so that people can start to recognize Jean Louis Sabaji and so they don't get scared, like 'I can't wear that, and I can't wear that'.
