Arwa Al Banawy: Making a Bold Fashion Statement

Published

on

In light of changes and modernity, comes to light talents that beautifully use these changes in creating meaningful art. One of these artists who took inspiration from the current changes in the Kingdom is the fashion designer Arwa Al Banawy.

Arwa Al Banawy was born in Saudi Arabia, spent years in Switzerland and is now based in Dubai. Her designs are known to have elaborate prints that are inspired from diverse sources that eventually make a one of a kind piece.

She has just recently launched her SS19 collection, and once again, her designs are making more than just a fashion statement. Seeing how the collection celebrates the recent women’s achievements in the Kingdom.

Her inspiration came from the recent wave that is happening in the country, it reflects the beauty and power of the youth and how Saudi Arabia is now encouraging women and is working towards achieving gender equality.

The collection includes tailored suits, wide-legged pants and safari jackets, all in bold colors. The kind of cloth a fierce woman would wear, one who is confident and doesn’t fear change.

The young designer started her fashion journey in her hometown Jeddah as a fashion and lifestyle blogger, then moved to Dubai in 2012, where she took a job in banking but still enrolled in fashion courses in the London College of Fashion. And that was when she realized that her true passion is designing, and three years later, she launched her debut collection in 2015 and has been blessing us with innovative designs ever since.

Another source of inspiration for her designs is travelling; seeing how she spent years moving between several spaces, she owes credit to traveling being a part of her passion for storytelling.
