Laura.. A leading brand in the world of the abaya industry, presented by Fashion Week Studio at their 2020 Paris show, was launched in 2006 at the hands of a group of international experiences in design and implementation, combining precision, art and originality. However, social media was not available for marketing at the time as it is today, so our only dependence was on the factor of innovation, quality and perseverance in our work.
Laura Doha start was from Qatar, then they headed to the world stage, where their brand imposed itself as a difficult number in the fashion world, through their cooperation with international companies (French, Italian and Spanish). During the past ten years, "Laura" has become a milestone in the sewing of Gulf abayas. Their continuity later became parallel to international fashion lines, which led them to participate in the 2020 Fashion Week Studio Show in Paris.

9. Naurah USA
Naurah USA is an Indo-Western ready to wear and custom made clothing line launched by Ayesha Khanna, a internationally recognized choreographer and the Founder & Director of Bollywood Funk NYC Dance school. The brand was launched in 2017 with the vision to expand and diversify from the original Indian Couture line based in India since 2001.
Having lived in New York for over a decade but with her roots in India, Ayesha dabbled with the desire to create a brand that fuses her love for fusion, whether it be in dance or fashion. She realized that the general perception about the Indian clothing is that is it heavy and can only be wore on occasions such as weddings or festivals. As an entrepreneur, living and working in NYC, she felt most women she met, chose to stick to dark colors and western ready to wear brands limiting traditional outfits to those "Once a year" festive occasions only. For years, she yearned to dress in beautiful outfits that reflected her Indian heritage but were practical for someone living in the US. She felt there was a gap that needed to filled.
FINALLY SHE CHOSE TO TRUST HER CREATIVE INSTINCTS TO CREATE A BRAND FOR THE PASSIONATE, INSPIRATIONAL WOMEN OF TODAY WHO ARE ALWAYS HUSTLING.
Each design they create, can be customized to some extend keeping the clients preferences in mind. They want their customers to feel proud wearing a piece that is exclusively made for them. With this goal in mind, Naurah USA strive to make every version of the original design a little different, better, lets just say more "You".

10. Guillermo Garcia (Venezuela, South America)
Guillermo Garcia has earned his spotlight. Since the age of 11, the Venezuelan designer has had an intrinsic sixth sense that the sartorial world was meant for him; Madonna's illustrious conical bra corset being one of his most powerful inspirations. Needless to say, the works of his line are just as brilliant as this look which motivated him to create his modern art.

11. Christopher Korey (New York)
Christopher Korey is largely based on old Hollywood but with a much more modern fit. If you look at the glamour and style of old Hollywood and if you saw those people walking around today, they would look just as good as they did 50, 60 and 70 years ago. As a society we have gotten away from grace and glamour. Men and women no longer look their best they just look like everyone else. CK is trying to bring back some of what made that era and that look special. It’s really just about making everyone the best version of themselves and being the star of their own movie which is their life.
He also owns a real-estate company in New York. Amazed?
