Little fashion boutiques are like hidden treasures. So when my cousin called me to introduce me to his friend's newly opened boutique, I got very excited (and even more excited after checking their instagram account!). Boutique ORA opened its door on Thursday 20th of December 2012 at Omniya Centre in Salmiya Salem Al Mubarak St. Let me give you my impression about it in a nutshell, if you're looking for something that's uber-cool and that's not entirely mainstream, then you must check it out.
Boutique ORA was a dream of two young men from different backgrounds Ahmad Al Reshaid and Marco De Nardi who shared one passion and one dream. They believed that the fascinating change of consumer attitude toward fashion in Kuwait gave them a push and a sign that the market was mature enough to go for quality over quantity. And that's how it all started.
Boutique ORA carries six exclusive brands in Kuwait all made in Italy by talented emerging and uprising Italian designers. Such as Carlo Contrada, who won the famous VOGUE ITALIA new designer to watch, Isabel Benenato, a Central St. Martin alumni who has unique edgy deconstructed designs using top notch natural elements like Italian pure wool and silk, Misuraca, who worked with British designer John Richmond and is known for its elegant designs, Avelon offers an uber-chic selection of pieces using interesting materials like viscose, silk, and wool ideal for women of all ages, Barbara Gongini, a Danish designer who studied and is currently working in Milano offers a selection of extremely edgy designs using simple cotton, and last but not least, A brand A part which is a brand that represents the philosophy of simplicity, elegance and tradition of handmade Italian accessories, using only pure Italian handmade leather.
