Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 in D minor started to play while Freya, the Norse goddess of love, made her dramatic appearance on the runway, crying tears of gold. Rather than belonging to a returned deity, the tears of gold were of fabric that ran down the skirt of the first evening gown Lebanese designer Reem Kachmar presented Wednesday in a private catwalk show on the final day of the L.I.P.S. Designers and Brands show. The show opened the third and final day of the first edition of a show held at Four Seasons Hotel in Beirut that aimed to create "back to back" fashion shows where the maximum number of designers and brands can be hosted within a short period of time. Since Monday evening, the show has hosted some 29 designers from nine countries."Freya's tears," painted by French artist Anne Marie Zilberman, was the spark that ignited the idea for the collection of 12 evening gowns and one bridal gown presented by art-loving Reem Kachmar.The collection closed with a theatrical bridal gown, something Reem Kachmar is famous for.
