Madiyah Al Sharqi, the designer from the Middle East

A meeting with the young designer Madiya Al Sharqi, originally from the United Arab Emirates who without ignoring her culture and traditions, chose to become a fashion designer. She expresses herself with freedom and without compromise all whilst hiding her face from the camera and the looks from outside. Interview: I think it’s because of our culture for us like women we are not allowed to be in front of cameras, but I think it’s changing nowadays, and I think it’s more of each family because I have so many friends now that can be photographed and can be on TV but with us it’s still very traditional, and it’s also interesting to see my clothes instead of just seeing the designs. I grew up with seeing my mother custom-make gowns for us when we were little and even for her, and meeting with other designers and we also had a little atelier at home, so we’d see the process of making the clothes and seeing everything transform from fabric to clothes, and then after I graduated from school I went to the French fashion university called ESMOD. My aesthetic is something which is ready to wear but luxurious, I love to mix different colours, I love to mix different fabrics, whether it’s with fur and silk, or whether it’s lace and leather. I think in this region because we have so much support from everyone it was easy to begin with but then the expectations keep getting higher and higher, so you always have to rise to that standard. But I think with the support, we always have a lot of support, whether it’s from the people, from the buyers and this region, and I love to see how all of them unite together and support upcoming designers.

A party with Alexander Wang x H&M in New York

It’s been 10 years that H&M has collaborated with the biggest names in fashion. 10 years that have been marked by capsule collections that sell out within minutes of their release. And fittingly for this tenth year, H&M invites an American for the first time, the designer, Alexander Wang, who is also today, the artistic director at Balenciaga. For the launch of this collection in stores this 6th November, a multitude of celebrities came to the party organised in New York to not miss the spectacular fashion show and Missy Elliot concert. Interviews: Margareta van den Bosch: It means that they have been successful I think this kind of idea that we had people still like it and are still queuing for it. Alexander Wang: To be part of the H&M family and to work on this project with them was so exciting but also at the same time we really felt that we wanted to approach it differently; the idea of active wear, and performance wear has always been something that I’ve always been close to me and my inspiration process, and I knew that I wanted this collection to be something that would really be exciting for everyone. Jessica Chastain: I love Alexander, I love how he takes street clothes and makes them really urban fashion. I’m hearing rumours of using sports and performance clothes and creating a whole new urban wardrobe. Dakota Fanning: I’m such a fan of Alexander and I wear so many of his pieces from his own collection in my everyday life, so I’m very excited to celebrate the collaboration and wear it. Kate Mara: H&M is such an easy place to go shopping too so I love that they’re working with him, so that more of the general public can go and buy his designs.
