Surbhi Jaggi, former winner of DFW’s Emerging Talent, showcased her line of abayas and started off the last day of Dubai Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2011. The 'Maharani Collection' fused Indian cuts and silhouettes into the abaya through touches such as Mughal detailing on the bust and a sari-inspired abaya featuring an over the shoulder sash in sequinned black. Wraparound abayas with pink brocades and abayas with multihued cowl necks paired with chunky gold earrings and waist chains, were some of the highlights.

A-line dresses in white with black and green back panelling were showcased on the runway, as designer duo Lamees and Eman Al Hajri, presented creations from their label ‘At A Glance’. Sheer shirts were paired with foliage-inspired sequinned harem pants and bubble skirts in solid colours. Strong shoulders in leather were alternated with fluffy fur sleeve detailing. Fabrics were combined in innovative ways including an outfit with an uneven white fur panel over a leather dress with a lace collar. A bridal outfit of plissé fabric and bunched tulle layers brought the show to a close. The outfits were complemented with jewellery by Sharmela Puri.
