Demeter, the “Goddess of the Harvest” and the “Mother of the Earth”, a Goddess who gathers the fruits of the earth and offers them to humanity; its cult is particularly flourishing in the countries where wheat is found in abundance, in Sicily, in the region of Eleusis, in Crete, in Thrace and in the Peloponnese. Like a bird flying over the harvests, perfectly free, crossing a colourful sky, resplendent and singularly geometric: the pale blue of the firmament mixes with the yellow and gold of the wheat, the green of the earth, the coral of the ocean and the bronze trees at sunset. Wheat ears dot the dresses, a tribute to the most iconic representation of the goddess Demeter. Ziad Nakad plays a subtle game that celebrates life in a precise mastered know-how and silk embroidered sublimated tulles. Ziad Nakad created this new couture collection for a strong woman, assumed, voluntary but also and especially generous, inspired by one of the most favourable deities to humans, as a symbol of accomplishment and peace.
