#FashionCrush: Tamara Al Gabbani ArabiAna A/W13 Collection

Good morning to you all!

I am so super exited to be back after a whole week of ‘digital detox’! I do have lots of fashion & beauty posts to catch up on but thought I’d share one of my fave local designers’ new A/W Collection today!

Since spending the Eid holidays over in Algeria with my in-laws, wearing mostly jalabiyas, I really got to appreciate how comfy, yet stylish these Arabic dresses are!

This is the one I wore for Eid, which is more of a ‘evening/party’ jalabiya. I got it from a tiny little shop in a very dodgy looking shopping center in Algiers but hey, I tell you, this is where you find THE BEST stuff! Morrocan kaftans, kanduras, babouches, and they are super mega cheap! Next time I travel back to Algiers, I will be sure to go with an (half) empty suitcase!!

For a bit more of a ‘luxe’ take on jalabiyas, Tamara Al Gabbani ArabiAna Collection really hits the mark when it comes to mixing modern designs & traditional pieces! Her new collection includes prints inspired from Islamic art and combining them with grecian geometric paterns.

Her pieces are made of the finest silk crepe and embedded with crystals. The finishing touch comes in the form of silk tassel belts. What I like most about Tamara’s pieces? They are affordable! From AED1,900….

Check out some of the pieces:
