Qatar fashion designer launches Batoolah Love collection

Inspired by the traditional face covering worn by some women in the Gulf, a Qatar-based fashion designer has launched a new collection that uses natural fabrics to help raise awareness of cancer.

Under the slogan “think pink, wear green,” the Batoolah Love collection features women’s bisht, abayas, tops and dresses made from linen or silk.

The initial dozen items were designed by Manjulakshmi Bharathan, who teaches fashion at Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar (VCUQ) and has her own women’s clothing label, Gills Manjulakshmi.
