There’s a new ready-to-wear label that has arrived in the region.

 Founded by Emirati designer Sharifa AlSharif, the new maison ONORI is inspired by silhouettes from different eras through the 20th and 21st centuries.

 In the debut collection, there are nods to the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s which run throughout and are key in encapsulating the essence of the house. Swipe through to see more.

The first collection is infused with a sense of joyfulness and mood-elevation through fashion. The feel-good pieces have a transformative effect on the wearer, channelling all the power, influence and poise of the iconic women who inspired it.

Balancing a feminine, whimsical palette of pastel pink, blue and fuschia, the collection also includes sharp black and white tones in bold shapes including statement bralettes, exaggerated flared trousers and sleek, body-hugging maxi skirts. The collection packs a punch with high-impact pieces, placing any wearer in the party-dressing mood, with feather, crystal and pearl detailing taking centre stage.

ONORI focuses on unique and sophisticated designs with rich detailing. These decorative techniques reign supreme in this debut collection, with standout features including an exaggerated vintage style collar, trimmed with oversized rhinestones, seen in baby-doll style dresses and light-as-air organza oversized shirts. Additionally, pearl detailing also acts as a key element in the collection, integrated in delicate buttons, and in eye-catching placements on beaded collars and gloves.

ONORI’s collection not only includes Ready-To-Wear, but also vital accessories that pull all the looks together. AlHashemi has designed ruffled and intricately beaded tulle gloves, crystallised chokers and more, adding the ability to elevate a look from the every day to the absolute spectacular.
