‘It was a dream come true to showcase my SS19 Collection at The National Museum! I try to reflect an element from my Omani heritage in every collection I design so presenting at a venue that boasts Omani culture and traditions is such a privilege. It truly was an honour to work with The National Museum on this show and I would like to personally thank them for all their support along with our other sponsors; Oman Air, Al Bustan Palace and Charles Oudin Paris. ” Says Amal Al Raisi, Creative & Managing Director, Amal Al Raisi.
The Spring/Summer 2019 collection is dedicated to bridging the gap between the East and West inspired by the archaeological site of Al Baleed. Al Baleed is a UNESCO world heritage site that served as a trading hub between the West and the Far East. To illustrate the workings of this old port, Amal works with elements derived from different countries such as India, China and Persia.
The collection radiates sophistication by blending traditional designs with a modern twist. Amal’s signature feature of embellishments is added for a final touch of luxury.
