Eiman Marzouqi bags Swarovski Abaya Design Award

Feb '08
Eiman was chosen from ten finalists, who were selected from more than 50 aspiring fashion designers who initially entered the Awards, the first of its kind in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.

“Eiman did a wonderful job, her Abaya is very unique and skillfully constructed,” said Daphne Cota, Exhibition Manager at The Bride Show. “I am very pleased for her, she deserves this recognition, as do all the finalists who have been working very hard in the last two months to have their designs completed."

“We have received excellent praise from visitors who can't believe such professionally designed creations have been made by amateur designers in such a short space of time. I'd like to thank the supporters of the Awards, the Abu Dhabi Ladies Club and the Family Development Foundation, both of which have remarked on the high quality of each design.”

The first and second runner ups, Mahawish Fatima and Khadija Al-Lamki respectively, were also praised by the judging panel, which included Adel Abu Haleeqa from Abu Haleeqa Stores, Bansri Gagwani from Swarovski Middle East, Judith Duriez from Arabesque Sheilas & Abayas and Maitha Al Amiri from the Abu Dhabi Ladies Club.

The Bride Show Abu Dhabi, organized by IIR Middle East, ran from 5–8 February at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre. The four-day event included fashion shows from renowned names Arabesque Sheilas & Abayas, Beenas Collection, Ghanati Couture, Houchaime and Rahmanian Haute Couture as well as high end shopping for brides-to-be and their families.
