The Six: Maryam Nassir Zadeh shows off at New York Fashion Week

DUBAI: New York-based designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh showed off a colorful collection at fashion week and we’ve picked out some of our favorite looks.

Layering with lime
With an oversized frill and circus-inspired sleeves, this lime green-and-pink shirt is an eye-catcher. The designer matched the top with nondescript brown trousers in an unusual runway pairing.

Diverse runway
The designer, who is of Iranian descent, sent a bevvy of diverse models down the runway, including one who showed off a sporty blue ensemble.

Creative collars
While the fit of this grey pantsuit leaves much to be desired, the oversized collar is quirky and harks back to a bygone era in rural American fashion.

A cut above
The sweep of the beautifully cut neckline is the focal point of this blue-and-white printed dress.
 

Think pink
Subtle rouching on the waist and shoulder create a desirable silhouette in this shocking pink number. While the silky sheen of the fabric adds extra oomph, the dress does seem flimsy.

Watercolor inspired
Harlequin watercolors make up this bold, lace-edged top. Pleated grey trousers that end at the ankle and snakeskin boots also made appearances in this wildly eclectic look.

Upon her arrival at the airport in the capital Rabat, the senior White House adviser was met by Morocco’s Princess Lalla Meryem, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Nasser Bourita, and other officials. Trump and the princess sat on a sofa and talked for several minutes before departing.

Trump is visiting Morocco to promote the US government’s Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative, which she spearheads. Launched in February, the program aims to help 50 million women in developing nations advance economically over the next six years.

The initiative has already been promoted by Trump during her trips this year to sub-Saharan Africa and South America.
