Sheikha Madiyah Al Sharqi is raising the mark of Middle Eastern fashion.
Fashion and the Middle East have always had a strong link. Sheikha Moza and Queen Rania, amongst other high profile royals and celebrities, have paved the way for Arabian women to be recognised as style icons across the world. Noted for their poise and grace, their sophistication is complimented by the talented designers which they wear.
Familiar with many red carpet names including Elie Saab and Reem Acra, the region has a thriving industry of emerging designers being appreciated on an international scale. A name to know is Madiyah Al Sharqi.
A Sheikha by birth, this Fujairah born Emirati understands the importance of quality construction using the finest fabrics and textures to compliment the female silhouette. Launching her eponymous brand with an evening wear collection in 2012 saw her gain respect of the industry. Her use of bold contrasting colours with figure hugging gowns and dresses cemented her talent as a Middle Eastern ready-to-wear designer.
