Rawan Maki’s eponymous sustainable label has been on our style radar for quite some time now and at last, the new Fall 2017 collection is available for purchase. If you’re keen to get your hands on the Bahraini designer’s ethical and recycled gowns, linen trousers, zero-waste headbands, or the signature abaya created out of recycled plastic bottles and peace silk that Vogue Arabia first introduced to the world in April, you can now head over to the online shop. The environmental-engineer-turned-designer had a party in London to coincide with the launch of the e-commerce website, which will undoubtedly find favor among fashion lovers and environmentalists alike.
“We’re very excited to be launching both in-store and online,” says Maki to Vogue Arabia. “It’s exhilarating seeing customers putting the pieces on. This collection is sustainable in more than one way: fabrics and production, and we’re very proud of that.”
After launching her collection early this year, the eco-conscious designer quickly rose to prominence with her earth-friendly, sustainable designs, which are the first of their kind in the Arab world. Maki unveiled her debut collection, Waves of the Future, in New York, where it was positively received by showgoers.
The online store currently offers the debut collection, and also includes a range of headbands, produced from the “leftover” sustainably produced textiles used in the Fall 2017 collection.
