HAMDA AL FAHIM
UAE-based designer Hamda’s journey into the world of fashion wear is a journey of following one’s instinct, in answering one’s true
calling in life. Born to Emirati parents in 1985 in the UAE, she grew up in the capital city of Abu Dhabi. She graduated from the
College of Art and Science and embarked on her career as an interior designer. But her heart was marching to its own beat from a very
young age.“My Designs Come From A Magical Place Where Everything Glitters And Sparkles.
