Step into a realm where grace reigns supreme and feminine essence flourishes in all its glory. Qatar’s trailblazing ready-to-wear label, 1309 Studios, pushes the boundaries of sustainability and style, crafting a collection that celebrates vulnerability, authenticity, and self-discovery.
In a fashion-forward stride, the brand’s founder, and creative director, Ghada Al Subaey, has laid a firm foundation for the brand’s values. With textiles that embrace veganism, biodegradable packaging, and zero-waste practices, it is extending its commitment to the environment while strengthening bonds with Arab women at home.
In its latest venture, Venus Rising, the collection weaves an enchanting tale of femininity, where every piece exudes grace and allure. Lightweight linens, delicate silks, and soft silk-crepe fabrics are meticulously curated, setting the stage for an elegant celebration of authenticity and self-expression. A colour palette graced with blues, earthy tones, and varying shades of green adds an emotional depth to this transformative journey.
Stand-out pieces include the beautiful Flowers of Paradise print, showcased in the Inaya abaya. This enchanting pattern sets the tone for the entire collection, intertwining delicate tenderness with unwavering resilience, each design reflecting an essence of femininity and nurturing a world where beauty blooms in all its glory. The divine Amira, an abaya which features blooming floral embroidery, adds a modern touch to the traditional piece, while in Maia, geometric floral embroidery creates a mesmerising fusion. Throughout the collection, hand-embroidered pieces celebrate the enchanting beauty of blooming flowers, a touching tribute to the natural world.
