The Six: Maryam Nassir Zadeh shows off at New York Fashion Week

DUBAI: New York-based designer Maryam Nassir Zadeh showed off a colorful collection at fashion week and we’ve picked out some of our favorite looks.

Layering with lime
With an oversized frill and circus-inspired sleeves, this lime green-and-pink shirt is an eye-catcher. The designer matched the top with nondescript brown trousers in an unusual runway pairing.

Diverse runway
The designer, who is of Iranian descent, sent a bevvy of diverse models down the runway, including one who showed off a sporty blue ensemble.

Creative collars
While the fit of this grey pantsuit leaves much to be desired, the oversized collar is quirky and harks back to a bygone era in rural American fashion.

A cut above
The sweep of the beautifully cut neckline is the focal point of this blue-and-white printed dress.
 

Think pink
Subtle rouching on the waist and shoulder create a desirable silhouette in this shocking pink number. While the silky sheen of the fabric adds extra oomph, the dress does seem flimsy.

Watercolor inspired
Harlequin watercolors make up this bold, lace-edged top. Pleated grey trousers that end at the ankle and snakeskin boots also made appearances in this wildly eclectic look.

What We Are Buying Today: Yataghan Jewellery

In January, my family celebrated my birthday by gifting me a “Hubb Collection” necklace that I had wanted ever since I laid eyes on it, when one of my relatives wore it.

The design of the word ‘Love’ — written in Arabic Farsi font and angled in a way that makes it heart-shaped — fascinated me, and I have worn the necklace ever since I got it, partly out of sentiment, but also because I find it so beautiful and unique.

Jeddah-based Yataghan Jewellery — the maker of the “Hubb Collection” — has a variety of gold designs, stackable jewel-ornamented hexagon rings, necklaces, bracelets and rings engraved in Arabic Farsi.

The store’s Instagram account @yataghanjewellery documents its trademark pieces and shares customers’ experiences along with how they choose to stack their Yataghan pieces.

Customer favorites include their Allah necklace, and the “Hubb Collection” (rings, necklaces and bracelets in crystalized or standard gold, silver or rose gold with a single colorful or silver crystal).
