Known as the Dishdasha in Kuwait and the Kandura in the UAE, the thobe is a traditional garb commonly worn by GCC nationals.
The long, crisp shirt-like garment goes all the down to the ankles, is long sleeved and typically worn with a Guthra and Egal.
Its colours are muted, with white being the most common since this hue reflects the light and gives off an aura of luxury. Lately, however, it seems like tradition is catching up with fashion as we see a number of local designers experimenting with different style innovations.
Their growing client base indicates that there is a high demand for this new approach of mixing traditional and western aesthetics. Three internationally recognised and regionally acclaimed designers are especially making a powerful impact in this industry.
We take a closer look and provide a brief overview of their vision, brand and path to success. Click on the links below for more information.
