Still not convinced that regional designers are making an impact across the world? Well then its time to let Saudi designer Mohamed Ashi be a testament.
Thanks to his bold vision of design, where he places craft at the forefront, the designer’s presence on red carpets across the world is a talisman of his unstoppable rise. Having presented his first runway show at Couture Week in Paris last season, it seems like the Paris-based designer has finally found the secret to celebrity-approved success.
With a trail of accolades, namely having his designs feature on the cover of Vogue, Numéro and L’Officiel and now worn by megastars including Beyoncé, Billy Porter and even her Majesty Queen Rania (to name but a few), it’s safe to say everyone is co-signing Ashi Studio at the moment.

@beyonce‘s Black Is King film is an ode to the Black Lives Matter movement, advocating and supporting black lives and women. Mr.Ashi was honored to create this elaborate hand-made embroidered piece which took 70 hours of work that was featured in the Black is King film released by Disney and directed by Beyonce yesterday in the states. The look incorporated exotic bird feathers, placed one by one on the bodice for this film that has a powerful impact in the world. #AshiStudio #Beyonce #BlackIsKing Styled by: @Zerinaakers Assisted by: @rrrffb
