I've been meaning to write this post ever since I first saw Lulwa Al Amin's debut collection almost 5 months ago and fell in love with a structured dress (shown in the last photo), the design looked so fresh! Like it was about to be featured in some fashion editorial for Lula magazine or Elle magazine. So when i got the chance to view Lulwa's 2nd collection for S/S 2012, it hit me! I never got around writing about this great regional talent. So this way overdue post is in recognition of the amazing designs, which have been created by Bahraini designer Lulwa Al Amin.
Born and raised in Bahrain, Lulwa Al Amin moved to London in 2004 to complete her college studies. She graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2009 with a BA Degree in Textile Design. Before starting her own label, Lulwa had already gained work experience from leading names in the fashion Industry, such as Matthew Williamson and Browns. In addition to a number of freelance projects.
The theme of Lulwa Al Amin's S/S 2012 has a whimsical and ethereal tone. Think girly silhouettes, cute ruffles, whimsical prints, and soft pastel colors. Her collection will soon be available online on www.notjustalabel.com. Also, both Sauce boutique and D'NA are carrying her collection as of this week. Lulwa is also set to exhibit her brand at Paris Fashion Week in March for next season.
