Created by Fadwa Baruni, whose influences are drawn from the structured world of engineering, her professional career in Europe and her North African heritage. Trained in art and fashion design at Edinburgh College of Art, Fadwa combines strong fashion sensibilities with her earlier training in engineering to design a collection that displays sophisticated, clean lines and sharp tailoring, all constructed for ease and fit. It was during her career as a petroleum engineer in Edinburgh that Fadwa realised fashion houses did not cater to the professional woman who requires a wardrobe that can take her from the office to an evening event. She thus channelled her frustration into her passion for design and Baruni was born. Now based in Dubai, Fadwa is strongly influenced by regional and local cultural influences as well as the colours and textures of nature, developing a signature style for the Baruni Collection. Recent collections have drawn their inspiration from the desert and from the presence of the sea. Strong colors, cuts and fabrics characterize the Baruni collections, creating a distinctive style which is building a growing following in the region. The Baruni Collection is designed for the woman who enjoys a full life and who requires a wardrobe to suit, whether relaxing at home with family or socializing with friends.
