Fashion Forward Dubai: Tahir Sultan

By  | 

Season Four represents Sultan’s fourth consecutive FFWD season. A graduate of Central Saint Martin’s, the highly celebrated Kuwaiti / Indo designer launched his own label in 2008 and in 2012 became the first Kuwaiti designer to show at London Fashion Week. Sultan’s superior imagination for his new collection, named “Infinite Days & Infinite Nights” is inspired by the iconic W Retreat & Spa – Maldives, re-interpreting its white sand beaches and turquoise lagoons, vibrant house-reef, rich aquatic life and playfully incorporating embroideries and prints referencing local Maldivian reefs and wildlife.
