The New Prince of Fashion: Sheikh Khalid Al Qasimi






This humble and talented Sheikh may have his beginnings as Emirate royalty, but now he rules the runways of London Town! Khalid Bin Sultan Al Qasimi is one of the fashion designers to watch. His SS2010 collection is all about youthfulness and Pop-u-lar-ity, which is exactly why celebrities, such as Lady Gaga, Florence Welch and Cheryl Cole are choosing to wearing the “QASIMI” couture label. Khalid’s dramatic and elegant style reflects the current trends of fashion today, as well as the idealism of fashion in the future. There is no doubt that this Sharjah born Sheikh will take over the fashion world by storm. I can’t wait to see what he will “wow” us with next at London Fashion Week this New Year.

I’m sure Sheikh Khalid Bin Sultan Al Qasimi would love to hear what you have to say about his designs, so don’t forget to leave a comment :). You can visit his website at

Hmmm, not bad but it kind of just looks like over exaggerated Balmain.

Really lovely...luv the use of shoulders.

Oh so this is the man behind these designs! They are nice and they do resonate a bit of Balmain like anonymous said

OMG I love Qasimi. I didn't get to see his first womenswear show but I did go to the one last season that your pics are from, he is brilliant. My only concern is that he isn't yet going down the ready-to-wear route, where longevity and real profitability lie. It's all very well making beautiful couture for us to look at, but someone of us want to be able to own some of it too!

Have you met him? He's also a darling and threw a fabulous party for us in London in November at Il Bottaccio. Mmm.
