Saudi Aram Kabbani has proved to be one of the most important fashion stylists and consultants in the Middle East. The 32-year-old stunner made a name as a style expert after working with some of the region’s most high-flying women, including the Kingdom’s Princess Ameerah Al-Taweel and businesswoman and activist Mona AbuSulayman.
Clearly, Kabbani, who is also a designer and Founder of Culture Couture and digital influencer, is super-stylish. From the looks she has posted while representing Saudi at Paris Couture Week, which took place in January, to the ones where she’s attending a grand opening or a celebratory dinner, her Instagram page is a smorgasbord of fashion inspiration. She also recently demonstrated how to up that style game while hitting the slopes.
The style icon, who has worked with “Vogue Arabia,” is a successful event organiser too. Kabbani holds events for renowned international brands, with family-run jewellery specialists Boghosian being one of her latest clients. In the past, the fashion powerhouse has accommodated events for Christian Dior, Tom Ford, Lanvin, Karl Lagerfield’s “Kaptain Karl” capsule collection and Carolina Herrera to name a few.
Additionally, Kabbani is a go-to image consultant to different brands and retail outlets in the Middle East. In November 2018, the fashion maven, who has appeared on “The Insider Middle East,” collaborated with Harvey Nichols Riyadh for a trend showcase. Plus, some major players are handpicking Kabbani as a brand ambassador. Recently, she was chosen as one of the authoritative women in the Middle East to represent the powerful “'Heure Du Diamant” watch collection from Chopard.
Kabbani is also known to speak at panels and debates in fashion schools around the region. However, she originally started her working life as a graphic designer. She graduated from Jeddah’s Dar Al-Hekma University with a bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design and has taken a course at Central Saint Martins – University of the Arts London.
