Essa Bhagoorwala is a home-grown talent to be proud of (Essa is of Indian origin but born and bred in the United Arab Emirates). After graduating with an MBA in marketing management and economics, Essa took a hands-on approach to learning the art of fashion design from the traditional pattern cutters and tailors of Dubai. Without formal training, Essa pushes creativity and innovation to the forefront of his designs.
Essa seamlessly works together vintage fabrics and trims with edgy tailoring, neon brights and futuristic textiles in his pioneering designs. He excels in the art of weaving the traditional and the modern together to create iconic designs that are universally flattering.
