If you need a post-weekend pick-me-up or simply some cuteness to put a smile on your face, look no further. Regional designer Huda Al Nuaimi has launched a range of embellishments that will do just the trick. Find everything from pineapples to unicorns in the line, all handmade in Dubai by skilled artisans. The pieces are a perfect mix of cute and cool and will help create your very own customized style staples. Mix and match to show your personality and create Instagram-worthy shoes, bags, pouches, jackets, and literally anything else you can think of.
“Embellishments have been a signature feature in all my collections since the beginning of my career, as I believe they can completely transform an outfit, a pair of shoes, or a bag. This year, I created stars — while playing around with the completely jazzed-up pieces, everything looked cooler with stars, so I started experimenting more with creating concept embellishments such as lips, carousels, unicorns, rainbows (and the list goes on) using different types of media, as I really thought it would be fun to give my clients the opportunity to customize their clothing, bags, shoes, phone cases, laptops, and so on,” shares Al Nuaimi with Savoir Flair.

“Choose embellishments that represent you as a person or your alter ego.” – Huda Al Nuaimi
“With reference to bags, less is more — so I recommend sticking to 1, 2, or 3 max.”
“On tops or skirts, scattering the embellishments is definitely more unique.”
“Embellishing open-toe heels looks really good on the feet; it’s quite a unique way to express who you are.”
“When working with prints, choose embellishments that contrast in color with the print so it stands out more.”
