Editor’s AW 2016 Picks From MENA Designers: Haifa Fahad
Haifa Fahad launched her brand in 2012. Based in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, Haifa’s vision was to build a label encompassing the world of extremes women face. She named the label after herself; standing strong in independence, Haifa Fahad is an artistic depiction of contemporary womanhood. A number of dynamic definitions simultaneously detail feminine prowess, from ready-to-wear metallics, actual metal, and gritty layering, to fairly tale couture, silks, and evening elegance, Haifa Fahad isn’t afraid to highlight the power of femininity in all its stunning variety.
Haifa Fahad latest collection is unapologetically refined. With a limited color palette of whites and silver, the collection primarily focuses on blocks of white with detailed embellishments to enhance the pieces to another level.

“APO-G: Be bold and make Haifa Fahad your fashion statement.”
What was the inspiration behind this collection?
Our inspiration is that we wanted to celebrate and honor the achievement of successful Arab and international women around the globe. We wanted the concept of jewelry imbibed into our clothes, making APO-g what it is today. We translated the literal definition of APO-G (to reach the highest point ) in a metaphorical sense – to reach a really high point in my career
