Amal Al Raisi
Amal Al Raisi’s collection is inspired by music and the way it crosses boundaries and allows different cultures to embrace one another. This season, and especially for Ramadan, Al Raisi’s fluid kaftans, dresses, jumpsuits and separates are the refreshing and elegant pieces that’ll have you looking effortless this holy month.
The spirit of Serrb lies in its selection of exceptional and exquisite fabrics in clean silhouettes that look to transcend seasons and trends. Serrb’s Ramadan 2020 collection is inspired by the dynamic spirit of Morocco, catered for the warm summer days and the auspicious holy month.
Focusing on contemporary styles, the collection takes form in dresses and floor length jackets tied together with twisted belts of rope and features fringes and tassels, highlighting a Moroccan approach to detailing. Staying true to the inspiration, the collection flows into classic Ramadan silhouettes of kaftans and abayas with hints of tassels illustrating a contemporary look, finished with an Arabian touch in a neutral colour palette inspired by the shades of the desert: dune pinks, dusty roses, oasis blue, shimmers of gold, sand, salt, and black.
IAM MAI was created by Mai Albudoor, an Emirati “designer of everything” with a background in art, architecture, interior, and graphic design in 2014. The label represents self-expression in how Mai sees design: an elegant juxtaposition of modesty and minimalism. Her current collection is inspired by the simplicity of structure, and features voluminous culottes, skirts, tops and double layer dresses. Experimenting with minimal color blocking, unique details lie in Mai’s incorporation of hidden belts and pleated sleeves.
