Arwa Al Banawi Autumn Winter 2017

Passionately imprinting the fashion world with her inspired stories, Al Banawi joins the forefront of designers bringing a timely message of female empowerment and gender equality for Autumn/Winter 2017, entitled Hayataha, which translates to “Her Life”.

Al Banawi’s “Suitable Woman” sheds light on the important role of modern Arab women play in society, and celebrates their eclectic background—much like herself who spent most of her childhood between Jeddah and Zurich before settling in Dubai. Al Banawi shares, “There is still a stigma that comes with being a strong and powerful working woman, I want to make women own up to that and feel good about it.”
