The Winter Collection of Koi is a blend of fabrics that introduces a versatility to the brand.
Created and ideated by Dhabya Al-Muhannadi, is a NUQ Alumni, filmmaker and artist who dabbles in media, film, fashion, video and new media, Koi is perfect for women who know their minds.
The latest offering from Koi is a merger of two collections and is a selection of diverse fabrics sourced from far away locations like Japan to bring in the versatility that the designer was looking for. Simple, minimal, chic and prestigious and represents whoever wears it, is how the designer Al Muhannadi describes her brand.
“The fabric is the key element in the design of the Abayas inspired from the Kimono pattern’s flow, fall and cut. Sustainability is also a key component for Koi with vegan fabrics like Cupro being used in its creation. For the Winter collection, I wanted to leave it casual, to make the collection change according to the person who styles it, making each piece signatory of the person who wears it, increasing the connect to the fabric,” says Dhabya Al-Muhannadi, the designer/creator of Koi.
The concept behind Koi is to mix and match and create your own signature Abaya.
