Beyoncé shows her love for designers coming from the Middle East. While she can – and does – have pick any fashion brand she wants, the star has lately diverted to names from our region lately. The diva has indeed a very much archived reputation of favoring looks by Arab fashion designers, from Tunisia to Kuwait, having worn outfits by Egyptian 2016 Fashion Prize champs Okhtein, Tunisian turban milliner Donia Allegue, Lebanese designer Jean Louis Sabaji, and Kuwaiti designer Yousef Al Jasmi, to give some examples. On Valentine’s Day, Queen B attended the opening of the Dreamweavers exhibition in Beverly Hills, and decided to embellish her checkered Ena Gancio suit with a purple, croc-impact Ida satchel from Dubai-based adornments brand L'Afshar.

It’s celebrity Stylist Zerina Akers who is as usual behind this beautiful outfit, a she is the image architect behind Beyoncé‘s revamped style. We can’t forget the Swarovski-itemized dark bodysuit from Yousef Aljasmi worn by Queen B in the Sorry music video.

The Dubai-based name, established by Lilian Afshar, has piled on a significant noteworthy rundown of big name fans since its launching in 2014. As of late, everybody from Kylie and Kendall Jenner to Bella Hadid and Sonam Kapoor have been seen carrying the brand's carefully assembled clutches.
