With a wealth of talent and creativity emerging out of Dubai, it’s always incredible to see the local industry being recognised for its achievements.

Her Highness Sheikha Mahra bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is one such person that is continuing to champion regional designers and their flawless creations.

At the latest Icons Exhibition – an event held multiple times a year showcasing local designers and talent and is run by Emirati designer and creative Roudha Al Shamsi – Her Highness made an appearance, showing her support for the local fashion industry.

Sheikha Mahra, the daughter of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, posted a series of photos from the event where she is seen talking with event-goers and perusing the local brands present at the event.
