Lamya Abedin launches Al Sultan Collection for Eid

One of the largest and longest lasting empires in history – the Ottoman Empire - has become the source of inspiration for Lamya Abedin’s latest Sultan Collection. In this collection Abedin presents 50 unique pieces that showcase the rich sartorial heritage of the Ottoman era.

“Cultures and countries have always been the catalyst to my creativity and the Ottoman Empire was an epitome of such inspiration for me with its ethnical diversities, confluence of the east and west and rich cultural vibrancy,” says Abedin, as she catches her breath during the photo shoot of her new Sultan Collection at Almaz by Momo at Mall of the Emirates.

The modern Maghrebin style restaurant becomes an apt backdrop to Abedin’s new collection, which is adequately kitschy as it is classical. Giorgio Armani contributed to the Arabesque look of the models and Jacques Dessanges of Paris did the hair styling.
