Created with the intention to celebrate women, this Qatar-based label, 1309 was established by Ghada Al Subaey to celebrate collections embracing feminine silhouettes embracing its traditional Qatari roots.


Since establishing the brand in 2015, it embodies a clean minimal aesthetic embodying fluidity to value the versatile multi-faceted arena of women in the region and globally.

From artful prints to a refined contemporary edge, the label is known for its signature aesthetic adding to the Middle East’s fashion scene with each collection being a notable work of art.


Known for its sustainable approach to fashion, this contemporary label also takes responsibility for using biodegradable packaging material for its collections, with the core of the brand using 70 per cent vegan fabric. This includes vegan silk also known as cupro, which is a natural by-product from the cotton industry to continue producing seasonless pieces including Abayas which have a low environmental impact throughout the production process.


While not only being a fashion brand, founder Al Subaey established it with the perspective of creating a community where women can have regular meetings either on a digital platform or in-person for discussions around women-centric, issues, meditation classes and inspirational workshops.
