Next time you're in Bahrain, take a detour to Adleya in the capital Manama and visit Cerise Couture, an arty boutique selling one-of-a-kind treasures.
The mastermind behind Cerise Couture is Bahraini designer Maryam, who in 2005 combined her love of art, music, rich fabrics and handicrafts to create a unique line of t-shirts, kaftans, tunics and abayas all designed and hand embroidered by the talented lady herself.
Maryam's funky creations infuse folky Arabic culture into contemporary designs with a vintage feel.
Even more cool is that her boutique is also a mini art gallery where you can feast your eyes on her magnificent art work as you scour her store for one of her unique pieces.
A savvy businesswoman, fashion designer and artist? With a steadily widening client base, I'm sure Maryam and Cerise Couture will continue to grow and go very far.
