Dubai Fashion Week Abayas

Dubai Fashion Week was last week and instead of posting each designer individually I thought it would be best to show you guys in one post, just to get it over and done with.

Emirati USH Boutique owner, Abeer AlSuwaidi, launched her collection - USH Design.  She featured many metallic embellished abayas with a sharp, cutting edge.


Nabrman produced a new line that included the signature Nabrman splash of bright colour plus floral detailing. Designer Hend AlMutawa also included greay and white varieties; including the abaya worn by Kim Kardashian.


Mohammed AlMarri's label, Dan Couture, created some of my favourite pieces for DFW. I love the yellows, reds and oranges he used in his designs.


Love the green & pink in the middle. So cute!

Homa Qamar, designer of Homa Q Abayas played with plenty of shapes and drapes under a metallic theme.


Loving the hooded pieces.
Barjis Chohan added abaya pieces to her collection (see my interview with her here about her latest collection).


Did you have a favourite abaya designer from Dubai Fashion Week? Which ones did you love the most?

  1. Why do abaya's have to be black? I love some of the designs, but I'm Turkish and we don't wear black, so I feel like I'm missing out on some of these pretty designs- unless I get them made in colour. I'll just have to do that unless they start coming in colours.

  2. I was too traumatized by the eyebrows of the model of the first picture made to look like the devil to notice the abayas.
