Meet this velvet beauty by Oscar de la renta
Love at first glance!
How gorgeous would it be adjusted into an abaya? Absolute luxury!
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.
Below are some of my favourite pics from their current and previous collections.
Traditional culture married with stylish couture
Whats your favourite piece?
If you read this blog regularly then you’ve already seen me rave about Ta Marbota..
If, however, you thought they couldn’t get any better you were wrong.
Introducing 60s glamour with checks *whispers* JUST like Louis Vuitton –
you can be fashionable AND modest.
I apologise for the lack of posts..
I was too busy holidaying in the UAE 😉
What can I say about thee O Dubai?
You’re an assault to the senses,
An intoxicating tingling of tastebuds,
And an ensnaring vortex when it comes to my hard earned cash
I’ll leave you all with a sneak peak
Yes its Fashion…Dubai style
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)

Being a woman who wears an ‘Abaya herself I like to keep on top of Abaya & Hijab trends.
Just as I can spend hours and hours traipsing around town shopping till my feet scream in agony, I can similarly squander away hours browsing through online Abaya fashion – and I must confess, more often than not I find myself in a familiar sticky situation.
Ever recall yourself as a young child with your nose pressed tight against the ominous glass windows of a glorious sweet shop? Tummy growling, eyes as large as saucers gazing onto an array of colourful sweet treats – that exhilarating sense of excitement, trepidation and longing buzzing through your entire being?
Well…with the advent of the internet and the evolution of Abaya fashion I find myself in exactly the same situation. Yes i’ve grown up but not much has changed – except that Abayas are my new object of desire..
My recent object…perhaps I should says objects…of desire are the Abaayaat from the newest Hesseh Haute Couture Collection. Like many other homegrown couture designers Hessa al-Obaidilis journey began at home in 2008.
“I realized that wherever I go, women would constantly ask me where I made my Abaya.” says Hessa.
Gold with a pop of turqoise chiffon. I dare you to find a fault.
This is definitely one of my favourites..no wait, thats a lie, all of the ones i’ve shortpicked are my favourites. I love the black lace complimenting the grey silk and drape. Classy!
I can’t even string up a comment for this. Just breath-taking.
