“It’s been a dream,” said the late former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, describing her
first visit to India in March of 1962. This season, Madiyah Al Sharqi looks to the historic
trip of the iconic American figure to tell the story of her collection while subtly
conveying her elusive personal style through her creations. Sharing a penchant for
pastel palettes in elegant, unusual fabrics with Kennedy, Al Sharqi ingeniously
combines those references to take shape in delicately feminine yet entirely
contemporary, statement-making looks.
Spring/Summer ’19 plays out with multi-coloured stripe, pastel-hued paisley, gingham,
and rich leather fabrics alongside the eponymous label’s signature embroidered lace.
Cut to take the form of silhouettes borrowed from the Sixties era, the collection
creates a mod moment with every look. Puff-sleeved jackets are paired with belted
flare trousers, playful hems are demonstrated in silk mini cami dresses with floor
length tiered lace overlays, and one-shouldered sequin embroidered dresses feature
button details, altogether showcasing Madiyah Al Sharqi’s progression into elevated
Citing traditional Indian garb, accents include paisley shawls incorporated to dresses,
tailored separates and jumpsuits that completely transform into a new look each time
it is styled a different way: placed over the neck, tied like a scarf or cascading down
one shoulder.
Taking daywear further, Al Sharqi immortalizes Jackie Kennedy’s Indian journey with
embroidered cotton shirts that say “It’s Been A Dream” and “1962” in short and longsleeved
Al Sharqi, who has visited India a number of times, shares, “I was amazed by all the
different cultures, landscapes and their warm hospitality. We’ve always had Indian
influences in the UAE but I discovered that India was much more than what I thought.
Visiting India really is a dream, getting familiar with and admiring the country’s rich
culture, history and architecture.”
