When it comes to talented designers, the Middle East is spoilt for choice, and this proliferation of top-notch fashion brands has caught the eye of major retailers like Moda Operandi. As Fall/Winter 2017 arrivals begin populating the shelves – real and virtual alike – there are numerous ways to shop the stylish collections of regional designers.
Naturally, there are plenty of abaya and kaftan looks from trusted sources like Bouguessa. However, the Middle East is also home to fashion beyond the traditional. Season after season, we seek out Mira Mikati’s bright and humorous clothes, fall hard for the ladylike loveliness of Zayan The Label, and try to get our hands on every piece of jewelry made by Donna Hourani. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the enticing variety of textures, silhouettes, prints, and accessories on offer from local brands.
There are so many incredible regional designers to choose from that we decided to make finding them easy by selecting some of our favorite looks from their latest collections. #KeepItLocal by shopping our curated selection below.
