This local designer's new collection was inspired by Jackie Kennedy's 1962 trip to India

Madiyah Al Sharqi’s latest collection of tees are inspired by former First Lady of the United States Jackie Kennedy’s 1962 visit to India. Each T-shirt pays tribute to the late style icon, and is embroidered with either “It’s Been A Dream”, referring to Jackie’s description of India, “1962” and “naMASte”, which features the Sheikha's initials. Oh yeah, Madiyah also happens to be the daughter of the Ruler of Fujairah, UAE, HH Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi.

Former US First Lady Jackie Kennedy even looked good while riding an elephant

The pastel-coloured tees come in long and short-sleeved options, which means they're perfect for both Ramadan and the half-summer-half-winter weather we’re experiencing in the UAE right now.

Madiyah Al Sharqi will be displaying the entire collection at her first-ever pop-up boutique in Dubai Design District until April 26th. Can’t make it? Don’t panic – you can shop the collection online here.
