Some of the Oh La La Abaya Designs collection.
DOHA: Qatari fashion designer Fatima Al Khuzaei introduced a number of new collections named Oh La La Abaya Designs at Made in Qatar, which was organised by Qatar Chamber. The designer referred to the importance of supporting young Qatari entrepreneurs to help them prove their talents and abilities.
Fatima said: “The name Oh La La Designs was inspired by a French expression used as an exclamation of pleasurable surprise. It was selected for its broad popularity locally and globally, pleasant meaning, and connection with Paris which is often dubbed the fashion capital of the world.”
“These designs cater to a range of lifestyles and age groups. Every line has modern and classic features. As a Qatari designer, I am proud of the Qatari and Gulf traditions, which are reflected in some of the new designs with contemporary touches in line with the latest fashion trends,” she added.
Fatima is also the editor of the fashion page in Al Sharq. In her debut into the world of fashion and lifestyle, Fatima launched her first Abaya collection titled Velvet Pearl in 2012.
The new collection for winter 2013 featured a number of eye-catching designs that were showed in Dress to Impress at The Gate recently. The Abaya is a symbol of the Eastern woman’s prestige and elegance. Hence, the designer’s message focused on staying true to heritage and tradition and introducing ultra-chic and luxurious design to the latest fashion trends.
