With royals like Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton in the spotlight and seen as true, global style icons, the importance of dressing in pieces from closer to home has never been greater! Style being a strong suit for many Arab royals, let’s dig deeper into how they support local brands from across the region – It’s time for Arab royals to take center stage!
HH Sheikha Moza bin Nasser of Qatar
Taking a powerful stance in the world of fashion, HH Sheikha Moza Bint Nasser takes sophistication to a whole new level. Her ceaseless consideration of cultural traditions and sensitivities, combined with her individual, unique style, have made her a central figure in the royal fashion scene as she stands as an inspiration to many Qataris. With her passion towards her Qatari heritage comes her support for local artisanship as she has been spotted in original pieces by Sanae Elhaddad, Khemar and Mhefhef by Mashael Alnaimi – you better believe Sheikha Moza screams chic!
HM Queen Rania of Jordan
It is no surprise that Her Majesty Queen Rania of Jordan has been placed at the top of our list! As an ethereal representation of elegance and grace amongst Arab royals, HM Queen Rania’s footprint in the community goes way beyond her humanitarian work. HM Queen Rania consistently rocks pieces by Middle Eastern designers. Out of the many local designers that Her Majesty has supported over the years, some of our favorites have been Amina Muaddi, Hama Hinnawi, Elie Saab and Dara Hamarneh.
Princess Al Joharah of Saudi Arabia
Being a Harvard alum having achieved her degree in entrepreneurial and small business operations, Princess Al Joharah is far from your stereotypical royal. As the ultimate girl boss, her work for her people has spread far beyond community services and societal welfare. Along with supporting many small local businesses and helping them come to fruition is her natural advocacy for local fashion brands. Her humble elegance has been captured in recent times when she’s worn pieces from the brands Dazluq and Honayda.
