FASHION DESIGNER PROFILES 5: Simple yet elegant. That’s Qouture by Q for you. Designer Qout Al Turaif has come to be known for her exceptional designs, adding her own unique personal signature to each of her collections. Qouture by Q is particularly known for the off-shoulder pieces. Most of Qout’s designs are imagined for the woman who wishes to stand out without much effort. Qout likes to showcase and emphasize curves that highlight femininity, and so is evident in the pieces that she designs. Lately, Qout has been trying to add more diversity to her designs, particularly for the clients that are hijab-wearers who are interested in wearing Qouture by Q designs. Qout aspires to bring out the best of what she has, and she continuously challenges herself to design each collection better than the one before.

Styling and innocently designing her own outfits since she was five, Qout Al Turaif was destined to be a designer. Qout dwelled into her career in designing 12 years ago, with the support of her inspiration and her muse, her mother. Sadly, Qout stepped back for a while due to her mother’s illness, may she rest in peace, out of fear of being unable to be as creative as she has been before. It was her mother who encouraged and pushed Qout into pursuing a career in fashion, recognizing her daughter’s passion and talent early on.

Taking strength from her pain, Qout decided to pursue her dream in designing and create a unique worldwide known brand that Qout and her mother had always dreamt of.
