HANIA Collection - as worn by Princess Ameera Al Taweel

HANIA Collection, also known as Oriental by Hania, is the luxury abaya label created by Saudi Arabian abaya designer and business woman Hania Al Braikan who hails from Riyadh. What Arabesque Sheilas and Abayas and DAS Collection are to the UAE, Hania Luxury Abayas is to the KSA.

Founded in 2011 originally as a brand that was part of her father's fashion company, Hania has branched out on her own and developed a successful couture abaya brand that has been presented in numerous prestigious events and fashion shows and is stocked by the likes of Saks Fifth Avenue and Harvey Nichols in Riyadh.

Having participated in her father's fashion business from a young age, Hania, who has a BA in economics and studied photography and fashion design in the United States, decided upon returning from the States to create her own brand, fusing her love of business and fashion. 

The outcome? Exquisite abayas made from French silk and Japanese crepe, with fine details such as Swarovski crystals, lace work and beading, and all embroidery and embellishments are done by hand, including the flower motifs on the "The Royal Orchid" abaya Princess Ameera Al Taweel wore.

Hania's latest collection was inspired by her travels around the Mediterranean - she reflected the spirit of the local culture and its art and history through feather edging, delicate lace work and sequin panelling. 

I'm in love with "The Bow" abaya.
