Saudi fashion designer Hanan Al-Faisal started her career as an artist. However, here limitless passion prodded her to seek greater dreams. The talented designer sought to express herself in art beyond the canvas, which is why she decided to pursue a career in fashion design. She credits the intricate details in her creations to her earlier calling as an artist, which she describes as the gateway to the world of fashion.
According to the designer, the reason she has been successful is because of her fearless nature and a boldness to experiment with new and avant-garde designs. She also attributes the obstacles she faced early on in her career as a great learning experience, which propelled her to adapt quickly and acquire new techniques.
Al-Faisal’s designs are very unique, as she usually stitches accessories to the dresses to give them an exclusive appeal. For nightgowns, the designer uses Swarovski crystals to give the dresses a more glamorous touch.
The designer keeps apace with the latest international trends by browsing the Internet and looks for inspirations by watching catwalks for the season’s latest styles and colors. She does not limit herself to international trends as she sees herself as a trendsetter and seeks inspiration from the rich culture present in her country.
Al-Faisal’s clients are the reasons behind her fearless style. Women in Saudi Arabia like to be unique and want to stand out in the crowd.
She also started an exclusive line especially for young girls, in an effort to help these girls discover their own style and create looks that suit their character.
Her summer collection offers girls a wide variety of dresses, with a mixture of colors inspired by the African landscape and gypsy culture, classical cuts as well as Romanian and Iranian elements.
