Jessica Kahawaty Is Sporting This New Kuwaiti Shoe Label That You Must Own

Carat is the latest talk of the town after Dubai-based Jessica Kahawaty and Lebanese reality star and entrepreneur Alice Abdel Aziz took to Instagram and posted pictures adorning designs by the new shoe brand. Founded by Kuwaiti designer Fatmah Hussein, Carat features unique designs created with the idea that shoes are akin to wearable art. The pieces are manufactured in Italy and bedecked with a ruby in the brand’s signature style.

Alice chose the ‘Alexander’ heels from the Fall/Winter 2019 and wore them on her recent trip to Romania. “They were so comfortable to walk in. I actually walked one hour wearing the heels,” she said on Instagram, as she struck a pose in Carat.

Jessica opted for the ‘Joy’ mules from the same collection. The social media sensation wore the slides on her visit to Sydney. “So proud of Kuwaiti designer Fatmah Hussain for her new shoe brand @caratbrandofficial – love my new 80s slides,” she wrote. Launched only a couple of month’s ago, there’s no gainsaying that Carat has quickly strut its way to fame.
