Winter is coming! And there’s no better place to prepare yourself than at the Passions Arabia Exhibition. A curated collection of Kuwaiti and regional designers from the fields of jewelry, fashion, shoes, bags, home accessories, beauty and art are gathering together under one roof at the Four Seasons Hotel Kuwait on 25th and 26th November. 10am – 1pm, and 5pm – 10pm.

FASHION DESIGNER PROFILES 1: Kuwaiti designer Bazza Alzouman, having spent a significant portion of her childhood in the US, born in Charleston, South Carolina, realized her desire and interest in design early on. She took up sewing classes while earning a degree in Business Administration at Boston University. In 2011, she moved to New York to pursue her passion at the Parsons School of Design and received an AAS Degree in Fashion Design while working alongside Naeem Khan to develop her skills and forge her own path in eveningwear. By 2014, Alzouman moved back to Kuwait to launch her eponymous label and establish her atelier. 

Bazza Alzouman aspires to bridge the gap between evening ready-to-wear and couture by adopting advanced construction techniques into the creation of each piece. Season on season, Alzouman’s understated aesthetic flees from overt opulence in favor of designing collections for a clientele who have an appreciation for ethereal, pared-down silhouettes and exquisite craftsmanship that speak volumes of modern elegance through texture, shape, and color.

This season, Bazza Alzouman poses the question, “Are there really many different types of women or do all these versions reside in us – manifesting at different points in our life as a reaction to experiences and circumstances we are dealt with?”
