Madiyah Al Sharqi
Dubai-based designer, Madiyah Al Sharqi launches her Spring/Summer 2013 collection, featuring beautifully crafted eveningwear with a twist. Sheikha Madiyah Al Sharqi, daughter of the Ruler of Fujairah, U.A.E, HH Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, grew up immersed in high fashion. From an early age she witnessed tailors custom make lavish gowns and fell in love with the design process. Her eponymous label was launched after graduating from the prestigious French fashion university, Esmod and interning under renowned Lebanese designer Abed Mahfouz. This season Al Sharqi offers her trademark eveningwear with an updated edge, evolving the traditional vision of elegance. The stunning Spring/Summer collection features a sixties influence, and sees Al Sharqi skillfully combine neon jacquards with subtle crocheted lace. Inspired by the undeniably iconic airline hostesses of the sixties – the collection features an array of garments, from gowns to jumpsuits – injecting timeless silhouettes with fresh colours and fabrics without losing Al Sharqi’s regal sensibility.
