Further expanding its footprint in the high-end traditional womenswear market, Al Siddiqi Brands, a division of Al Siddiqi Holding, opened the inaugural store of its luxury abaya brand, Almotahajiba SIGNATURE, in the Porto Arabia Towers at The Pearl-Qatar on 13 July 2015.
Designed to cater to the modern Arab woman, SIGNATURE aims to be a leader in the luxury traditional womenswear market, offering an exclusive range of handmade abayas, jalabiyas, sheilas, leather goods and accessories that combine exquisite designs with extraordinary quality.
SIGNATURE is the third abaya brand from Al Siddiqi Brands, following the upscale Al Motahajiba and the young and trendy Dary, and offers a level of luxury previously unseen in the Arab womenswear market. CEO of Al Siddiqi Holding, Aly Delawar, said:
SIGNATURE is created to fulfill a desire in the market for luxury abayas of the highest quality and craftsmanship. The brand embodies what is most noble and accomplished in the artisan world, blending tradition, sophistication and bespoke luxury to deliver an unmatched level of elegance and personalisation in Arab womenswear.’
SIGNATURE uses the understanding and experience of the traditional beauty and design of the abaya, and brings it together with modern cuts and new materials to create the most luxurious abaya in the world. Each SIGNATURE piece is made of high-quality materials including pure silk and is crafted with passion, as evidenced by the exquisite details and matchless elegance of the designs. Delawar said:
As the luxury label of Al Siddiqi Brands that offers an exclusive selection of designs created entirely in Qatar, SIGNATURE shares the same culture of excellence and creative spirit as the Group’s existing home-grown fashion brands, while placing even greater emphasis on the elements of quality and authenticity. We plan to expand the SIGNATURE brand into other segments of luxury retail, with a full line of fragrances, eyewear, and jewelry already in the pipeline.’
