Amna Alsalem grew up in Kuwait. She's the daughter of an art collector and homeware designer, and she taught herself to craft bespoke designs by hand. After finishing university, where she studied business, she went to London and took courses at Istituto Marangoni. These formative years find their way into each piece in her collections, informing her signature fusion of East and West – modern elegance with an exotic edge.
Unaffected by transient fashion trends, Amna Alsalem designs her garments to embody her own perception of beauty, taking fashion back to its roots as an art form: a true expression of self. This lends her creations a timelessness that cannot be replicated.
Specializing in women’s formalwear, Amna Alsalem’s eponymous designs are produced in Kuwait using the highest-quality fabrics, sourced from Paris and Milan. Showing painstaking attention to detail, her collections exhibit the old-world craftsmanship of traditional couture.
Her work was featured in Vogue Arabia, L’Officiel and Marie Claire. Harper's Bazaar called her collection, “prettier than pretty” in their Star of the Future feature.
