Hessa Falasi

Founder and Creative Director, Hessa Falasi

 

What I do:

I empower women with style.

My milestone moment:

Starting the belted abaya trend, which has stood the test of time and still remains a part of the designer abaya wardrobe of the modern woman. It is also one of the reasons I recently became the most searched Emirati modest fashion designer in the world.

Up next:

I will be looking to express my artistic vision in other areas of luxury that empower a modern Arab woman’s lifestyle. From interior styling to designing luxury heels, I am undertaking a variety of artistic endeavours, all aimed at creating stylish options for the modern Arab woman.
