Tony Ward has developed over the years a network
of boutiques and department stores which offer his Ready-to-wear and Bridal
lines in more than 30 countries.
The designer and his team travel the world to
organize exclusive events in partnership with these boutiques.
Following the success of the Tony Ward Bridal
Fashion Show in New York, in partnership with Kleinfeld, the biggest luxury
Bridal Store in the World; and the Tony Ward Ready-to-wear Fashion Show in
Mexico City, in partnership with Saks Fifth Avenue; he was invited by Fifty One
East, Qatar’s favorite department store, to show his Couture Spring Summer 2017
This collection is inspired by a Byzantine
empress, Aelia Eudocia. Charmed by the empress’s avant-garde and unconventional
journey, Tony Ward reflected her boldness and modernism on his designs and
developed a collection at her image: a mixture of strength, poetry, boldness
Fifty One East is known for organizing very high
profile events and bringing the best international fashion brands to Doha. The
department store had organized fashion shows for Oscar de la Renta and Monique
Lhuillier and an exhibition for Carolina Herrera last year.
