Sara Albayati in Nina Magazine
Sarah Albayati is a fusion of Arabic, Turkish and Kurd: something she is very proud of! Having graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Baghdad, she set out to be a fashion designer, reflecting her passion for style and her interesting heritage. At just 25, Sarah Al-Bayati is the first Iraqii, and the only Iraqi fashion designer, to take part in DUBAI FASHION NIGHTS as a representative of the Republic of Iraq. This launch made her famous and the award-winning young designer secured the first of many customers.
Sarah and new partner, Jiyan Aziz, are launching cutting-edge design fashion in the form of MexMel in the next couple of months. Jiyan, a successful businesswoman and lawyer, travels extensively to the fashion hubs of Europe and knows what she wants. “Iraqi women deserve quality and style and we can deliver it.”
