October is officially breast cancer awareness month globally, and it's such an important topic here in the Middle East, too. To help raise awareness amongst women in the region, Dubai-based designer Yasmin Al Mulla, the brains behind YNM Dubai, has designed a piece specifically for the occasion. 

The soft pink coat is made using Spanish raw pink silk and features delicate floral embroidery on the sleeves.

Speaking with Buro 24/7 Middle East exclusively about the design, Yasmin said, "Designing a beautiful piece can translate a positive message in a very optimistic way. [I hope this piece will] help patients all over the world and assure them that we are there for them, trying our best to help them walk into the path of recovery. Creating a campaign for a cause, and a product for a cause [is great for] spreading awareness. Fashion is a powerful tool that we need to take advantage of and use wisely."
