HM Queen Rania of Jordan kicked off February with stops in Turkey and Tunisia. The royal landed in the North African country alongside her husband HM King Abdullah II on Sunday, where the couple met with President Beji Caid Essebsi and first lady Chadlia Saida Farhat. For the occasion of the state visit, the ever-stylish Queen wore a powder-blue dress from emerging Tbilisi-based label Dalood. The look was an expert blend of emerging and established labels as she paired the long-sleeved, midi-length dress with a Fendi handbag, and grey pumps from Gianvito Rossi.
The Georgian womenswear label was founded by Tbisili-based designer Maka Kvitsiani five-years-ago. The designer, who studied at London’s Central Saint Martins, founded a boutique in Moscow that stocked cult labels from her home nation, before establishing her own brand in 2014. Dalood has since found fans in the likes of regional it girls Karen Wazen B, Nour Arida, and Nathalie Fanj who have all been spotted wearing her signature, ladylike dresses and embellished jackets.
While Queen Rania’s wardrobe is peppered with prestigious, storied labels such as Dior, Balmain, and Prada, her sartorial choices aren’t just limited to well-known international brands. Her Majesty often makes it a point to represent up-and-coming designers, championing the likes of Boyfriend the Brand, Zenobiaa, Hussein Bazaza, and Layeur for public outings in recent months.
