How They Wear it: Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al-Missned, Part II

Although it has been known for years that clients from the Gulf constitute a large portion of couture’s customer base, Sheikha Mozah’s public life has meant that for the first time we are able to see what a couture customer from the Gulf is buying. She is a perfect example of how Couture allows clients from the Gulf to adapt garments to their specific lifestyles, often lengthening skirt or covering arms to adhere to Islamic customs of modesty while still maintaining a sense of style.

Clockwise: Gaultier Paris, Fall 2005; Jean-Louis Scherrer, Fall 2004; Gaultier Paris Spring 2006; In Jean-Louis Scherrer, Spring 2005; Wearing Gaultier Paris, Fall 2005.
