Sarelle’s Ramadan Collection
Inspired by the intimate setting of family and shared experiences, Sarelle’s Ramadan Collection seeks to capture a sense of purity and piety in the shimmering incandescence of these simple demure shapes with show stopping floor length sweeping gowns and luxurious use of fabrics with ornate finishing.
The color palette is predominantly sparkling pales; ash, salmon, ivory and white with silver, gold lace and an abundance of bead and pearl detailing lending a sense of twilight luminescence and weightlessness to the collection in a play on moonlight.
The collection finishes with the outing of Baby Sarelle pieces in brocade to match the adult capes. All boast Sarelle’s signature attention to detail and exceptional craftsmanship and are available in additional color ways for bespoke orders.
