A month ago I came across an impressive brand based in London. Designer Hind Matar from Bahrain is truly talented and you can see the passion, detail and love in her designs. There is nothing more that I love than seeing emerging talent from our region, it makes me so proud. MATAR has just launched an A/W14 lookbook which I will be posting next, but check out some of her S/S14 that I am so excited about.
More about the brand: MATAR is a London-based label known for its delicate blend of contradictions. In
that elusive space between the harmonious and the confrontational, MATAR belongs
in the wardrobe of an ageless, fearless and effortless woman.
Debuting her first collection during the S/S 2014 season, Hind Matar launched
MATAR at the London Fashion Week Designer Showrooms in Somerset House.
Born in Bahrain, Hind’s formative years were spent shuttling between the Middle East,
the US and Europe. She holds a fashion diploma from Central Saint Martins and a
bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Virginia. She later assisted
Bernhard Willhelm and Yang Li in their design studios.
Thought-provoking yet eye-catching, MATAR uses unforgettable combinations of
fabric, line and embellishment to explore fresh perspectives of femininity.
Through its vibrant streamlined body architecture, MATAR is where sensuality and strength meet.
