DRESS­ING WELL TO MAKE A DIF­FER­ENCE

Friday - - Making A Difference -

She’s rais­ing money and aware­ness for chil­dren with spe­cial needs – but Lamya Abe­din is hop­ing to en­sure Dubai’s women look su­per-trendy while she does it.

A por­tion of her prof­its from her new Mex­i­can-in­spired range will go to­wards the Al Noor Train­ing Cen­tre For Chil­dren with Spe­cial Needs. What ex­actly is the range like? “Ev­ery collection I cre­ate is a re­vival of my first love for cul­ture and her­itage, in a re­de­fined mod­ern ver­sion,” says Lamya, who set up her Queen Of Spades la­bel in 2008.

“So while the core el­e­ments of my style state­ment can be seen across my cre­ations, each collection brings about a touch of nov­elty jux­ta­posed with time­less beauty.”

In this in­stance that means Mex­i­can pat­terns, hues of Cen­tral Amer­i­can spices and pon­cho-style abayas.
