Noon by Noor Stages NYFW Show
Bahraini label Noon by Noor showcased its Fall 2019 ready-to-wear collection in New York on Thursday. Founded by cousins Shaikha Noor Rashid Al Khalifa and Shaikha Haya Mohammed Al Khalifa, the latest offering featured clean, feminine designs in a vibrant color palette of green, yellow, and coral, as well as brown, and black. The offering was punctuated with pleated, floor-length dresses, diaphanous blouses with ruched sleeves, expertly-cut camel coats, and fluid, ankle-grazing designs in vibrant colors.
Arab Models Storm the Runways
From Moroccan-British Nora Attal at the Longchamp Fall 2019 Ready-to-Wear show and part-Palestinian supermodel Gigi Hadid at Tom Ford, to Bella Hadid at Ralph Lauren, models with Arabian roots made an impact during New York Fashion Week.
Halima Aden Rocks Sherri Hill
Former Vogue Arabia cover star Halima Aden made an appearance at Sherri Hill’s Fall 2019 ready-to-wear runway presentation wearing a long-sleeved, crystal-encrusted gown in cyan blue, paired with a matching, artfully-tied turban.
Dima Ayad Makes NYFW Debut at 11 Honoré’s Show
11 Honoré made its NYFW debut last week, with an all-inclusive runway show that featured a dynamic cast of models from all backgrounds wearing designs from cutting-edge luxury brands that included the likes of Brandon Maxwell, Prabal Gurang, Zac Posen, Chromat, and the Middle East‘s very own Dima Ayad. The Lebanese, Dubai-based designer’s design in question included a red, plunging, sequin-embellished dress, which was worn with a green, equally dazzling bomber jacket.
