A few months ago, I came across the name Zahia Dehar. I managed to read past her soccer sex scandal and moved on to researching her lingerie line. At first, I was in a personal dilemma. I don’t by any means encourage prostitution, but I kind of love the fact that she was a hooker. After looking past her silicone filled chest and bottle blonde hair, I found her collection brilliant. I mean, whose to know more about lingerie than a former prostitute? Her pieces are risque, all in a palette of pinks and reds, maintaining a very feminine feel. She steered away from the traditions of fashion and design as she serves as her own muse. She even walks in her own shows. Hugo Lopez brilliantly captured Dehar’s story in his film ‘Zahia De Z a A’. She is well on her way in building a brand as a Paris couturier and It’s actually very sad. She seems to long for happiness and hopes that her designs bring that happiness to her. Her collection ends up reflecting that sadness and it’s quite tragic.
Here’s the film, I suggest you watch!
