Since the brand’s launch, FanillaCouture has managed to be a fashion statement label and get the applause of many fashionistas across the Gulf. Starting every collection is a journey rather than a process where the inspiration for a new theme can arise from a thought, an exulted moment or any surrounding simple detail that touches the designer’s heart. Razan’s profound love for Arabic culture and fashion plays a pivotal role in being her main source of inspiration. She utilizes various cultural elements in her amazing collections which later translate into trend setter designs.
Having so much passion for design, the brand expanded from t-shirts now to include Kaftans, dresses, modern galabias, Travel kimonos, sweat pants, sweaters, hoodies, passport covers, mobile covers and much more.
