Highly sought after designer Rabia Z recently showcased her Fall/Winter 2011 collection at Dubai Fashion Week aimed at the woman who confidentially flaunts her individuality.
On a quest to find her muse through an online competition on her website, Rabia stumbled upon 25-year-old Ayesha, of Arab and British heritage. The collection is inspired by Ayesha’s personal style and personality and the exercise of the competition helped the designer understand and adapt to the needs of her clientele in a more informed manner.
The ‘Ayesha’s Autumnal Journey’ collection plays with fall colours of ochre, olive, khaki and grey with splashes of other colour worked into the outfits. The outfits in organic cotton, denim, wool and lycra are alternated with her signature use of stretch jersey. Holding true to the label’s philosophy of conservative chic, structured jackets and soft tops were worn over wide trousers. The innovative ‘jacket-abayas’ in chocolate brown were teamed with jeans, displaying their instant wearable quotient.
Bonus tip: The collection featured sunglasses and accessories from the UK brand ACCESSORIZE.
