At its core, ARSHYS is about using fashion as visuals communicating our beliefs and identity. It is a bold, quirky contemporary womenswear brand that established in Dubai in the first quarter of 2017 when slow fashion and the idea of producing a small capsule collection came alive for the Emirati designer, Arshia Alam. ARSHYS supports sustainability by creating designs each season in small batches so each item finds a home and ethically produces them in UAE. Every season the designers also make an effort to make new samples from the left-over fabrics of last season in an effort to eliminate waste. By taking the time to ensure quality production and giving value to each individual look, ARSHYS designs clothe each with its own positive voice, complete with messages of peace and love, Since its launch, the brand has received awards and accolades by the industry professionals based on the originality, growth potential of the business. Some of the awards and title received are Swarovski Innovations Awards, Black Sheep on NotJustALabel.com, (title given to designers identified to be especially innovative, pioneering and striking in their work).
