Arab Designers are making it happen!
If you are reading this, you are in the Mayshad spirit. And if you are in the Mayshad spirit, you aspire to be unique and chic, because you want your outfit to speak for itself and to be outstanding.
I am an Arab, and proud to belong to the rich, ancient Arab Culture. Arabs created mathematics, which is the science that rules everything in our modern life. Arab scents are noble, Oud is noble. Arab poetry is rich. My favorite poet, Shams Tabrizi, is Persian, but his name is still Arab. Arab outfits respect the body of the woman because they make her look elegant and respectable.
However, many other Arab designers are worth mentioning thanks to their impeccable work and their sense of creativity:
Rami Al Ali
Rami Al Ali is a name in the fashion industry that is worthy of a big applause. Born in Syria and established in the UAE, Rami Al Ali’s breakthrough came when displayed his first collection at the prestigious AltaModa Couture Week in Rome, in 2009. Three years later, he debuted his first Paris Fashion Week with a breathtaking collection that was reviewed by the industry’s professionals as equal to Zuhair Murad is terms of quality and creativity.
Rami Al Ali is distinguished by his rich and strong fabrics, romantic necklines and sophisticated detailings.
To me, Hussein Bazaza is the Arabian Peter Pilotto. Hussein Bazaza is young, very young and smart. He’s a millennial. Hussein Bazaza uses very high quality fabrics and lot, really a lot of delicate lace and embroideries. La noblesse.
Bazaza’s style is a mixture of classic and contemporary fashion. Bazaza clients are sophisticated, fashionable and edgy. On point.
Late Basil Soda was Elie Saab’s student. Architect by degree, he worked for the Arab world’s most famous couturier before creating his own label. The funny thing is that he used almost no lace or tulle in his designs, which are the master fabrics of his mentor Elie Saab. Basil Soda creates delicate and sophisticated dresses. His cuts are simple, edgy, sharp. A combination of Elie Saab and Oscar de La Renta.
If like me, you have a special admiration for Ameera Al Taweel, you need a Moni&J bag in your wardrobe. Manar was born is Syria and is now based in Kuwait. Her bags are rich in terms of quality and design. They have a lot of personality and add a lot of classiness to any outfit.
Moni&J designs are deep and strong. They are not normal bags, they are pieces of jewelry.
Sofia is the epitome of the modern Arabian classiness. She was born in Bahrain, she is a constant traveler and a hard worker. I have a special admiration for this brand and the designer herself because I followed the growth of her brand since its launch in 2012. The first bag is designed and handcrafted in Marbella is the Shield bag, which belongs to her permanent collection. Sofia Alasfoor bags are must-haves to women who like YSL designs but don’t want their bags to be immediately recognized. Women who like to be different.
