Is it too soon to start planning our NYE outfit? How we’ll be meeting 2021 (fingers crossed it’s a tad better than 2020) is still up in the air, but one thing for sure is that we want to feel like the belle of the ball, even if the night involves a takeaway and Netflix.


To help you feel your most glamorous at any celebration is Emirati designer Madiyah Al Sharqi who delivers an elegant collection that has an element of a youthful punk spirit.

Paying tribute to the brand’s signature aesthetic, expect opulent fabrics are shaped into statement dresses for day and night, rendered with edgy accents and textures in the form of tiers creating volume, cascading ruffles and subtle crystal embellishments. Think Mean Girls at Prom.

The collection is entirely designed and produced in the luxury label’s atelier in Fujairah, UAE and feels like a modern take on regal dressing.

The daughter of the Ruler of Fujairah has been putting in the work, representing the UAE in the fashion industry. The Dubai-based designer, who studied at prestigious French fashion college Esmod, is famed for her uber-feminine silhouettes and juxtaposition of textures.

Ever since launching her eponymous label in 2012, the designer has had several A-list celebrities don her creations. From singer Lorde to Khloe Kardashian– we expect this collection to be a hit among the style stars in the region and beyond.
