This August Saks Fifth Avenue Bahrain welcomed their latest local brand, Amal al Mulla, into its ever-expanding portfolio of Middle Eastern designers. The Bahraini-based fashion designer, who launched her eponymous label two years ago, says she's "proud to be a Bahraini brand amidst renowned international designers."

"We are taking it one-step at a time into the right direction," says Mulla, when asked about opening her first international door. "Our strategy is to first focus on growing the brand throughout the Middle East and eventually work on expanding worldwide."

"What sets Amal al Mulla apart from other Middle Eastern brands is our brand aesthetics, our design approach and of course the storyboards we offer every season, which are based on two elements, escapism and nature."
