Strut Like an Egyptian: International Runways Meet Egyptian History
Egypt’s glamor knows no limits: on the runway, high-end couture meets ancient Egypt, where long capes drip with gold, dresses pleat with emerald jewels, and warm tones accentuate the designs.
A perfect harmony of art and culture – international luxury brands such as Chanel, Christian Dior, Givenchy, Balmain, Tom Ford, and Zuhair Murad, have incorporated elements and themes of Egypt’s history and culture into their designs, flaunting glitz and glamor in stunning Egyptian collections.
Here is a small lookbook into some of the Egyptian collections by luxury brands from the newest to oldest in their Spring-Summer (SS) and Fall-Winter (FW) collections.

After being an active participant in Model United Nation (MUN) conferences both locally and internationally, Farah discovered her love for writing. When she isn’t writing about Arts & Culture for Egyptian Streets, she is busy watching films and shows to review. Writing isn’t completed without a coffee or an iced matcha latte in hand—that she regularly spills. She occasionally challenges herself in reading challenges on Goodreads, and can easily read a book a day.
