Trio Couture

As given away in the name, Trio Couture was launched in 2010 by three young women. Hailing from Abu Dhabi the trio have invented their own interpretations of Abayas, Jalabiyas and yes even wedding gowns.

I know what i’ll be trying to recreate over the weekend!

Aghnaj By Halima Seemba

I’ve been a little quiet on my blog – pretty much due to a combination of being uninspired and busy with Ramadan..

However, being the woman that I am – a woman who appreciates fashion and the finer things in life – it didn’t take long to dispel my boredom. Especially when I came across Aghnaj. (Facebook)

Founded by Emirati designer Halima Seemba Aghnaj is a creative hubbub of Abayaat and dresses, though recently established (Feb 2012) Aghnaj are making themselves known.

As well as having a large range of everyday as well as Wedding & Occasion Abayas – they also have a selection of evening, henna and Melcha dresses available, and if that wasn’t enough they also have a casual apparel and cute childrens line!

So what sort of woman is her brand aimed towards?

It’s pretty simple.

The urbane modern woman searching for versatile elegant clothes – with a touch of emiratiness!

Her newest Abaya collection ‘the Conquer Abaya Collection’ is described by the designer in the following words

Here I present CONQUER ABAYA COLLECTION which is basically presenting the social and stylish working woman . Ambitious and hardworking. Mixture of bright flashy mixed with fade combination laces and beads, making the style suitable for day time and evening wear.

If you’re in Sharjah be sure to stop by the Ramadan Night Market between the 10th to the 19th of August as Aghnaj will be presenting their collection there! (See booth R41 Hall 7)

Romantic Textures – A Love Affair With Lace

I love the texture, beauty and femininity that intricate nets and lace can present..

What with all the designers embracing lace (think Louise Vuitton, Dolce & Gabbana) and the fact that its everywhere on our high streets (jackets/dresses/bags & jewellery) its no wonder they’ve also been incorporated into abayas..and with much success if I may say!

There’s just three words that come to mind – Pure unadulterated class.

True parisian glamour.

Ladies, what do you think? Would you wear a lace abaya combination? Or is it one step too far? Thoughts please!

Dress Like Dello Russo

If we thought H&M struck gold with the Marni Collaboration then Anna Del Russos’ in an entirely different league..

I did try to contain myself, to stop myself from jumping on the bandwagon, of being swept up in the inherent wave of thrilled bloggers all singing praise of Anna Del Russo & her collaboration with H&M…but what’s a girl to do?

When faced with the tantalising prospect of owning such glam accessories, one just has to succumb – for writing is all you can do to let out steam – to quell the ignited fire.

This golden Alice-In-Wonderland collaboration will include evening clutches, jewellery, shoes and a supposed trolley (travel suitcase in british lay-man terms).

Here’s the sneak peak pic that showcases some of the items to be..gold, gold & more gold..yay!

My absolute favourite is the Fayrouz (turqoise) bag (I mean the gold one on left with turk stone) it reeks of versace, wealth and societies elite…How lush would it look paired with a jet black abaya & the almost-but-not-quite overdone YSL arty ring?

Yves Saint Laurent ring

I can’t wait! 😀
