Her vision of fashion is of timeless elegance, and her designs are made to go way beyond trends. So if you’re a woman who loves the mix of modernity and understated luxury, and of classic and contemporary, then this label is made for you.

The Saudi fashion designer launched her namesake brand in 2015, after studying at the London College of Fashion in Dubai. Al Banawi has both women empowerment and Arab culture in mind when she works on her designs.

The brand showcases a beautiful mix of contrasts, where traditional tailoring blends with contemporary East meets West perspectives, and a focus on professional yet fashion forward womenswear.

Saudi designer Razan Al Azzouni breathes art. Since she was a child, her passion was for all things related to art, especially sculpture, but also fashion. After her graduation from The School of Museum of Fine Arts and TUFTS University in Boston, Massachusetts, she decided to focus solely on fashion to develop her own label.

We love her creations because they are glamorous but not heavy; elegant yet modern, sculptural yet comfortable. Everything is special about her namesake label, from the use of soft luxurious textures on to the sculptural and artistic vibe she infuses in her designs. It’s all about exuding the femininity, delicacy and grace of contemporary Arab women.
