Meet the designer: Essa Walla

This year for Ramadan, Splash at Centrepoint partners with renowned designer Essa Walla to create an exquisite collection of pieces fit for the holy month. The results were both eclectic and bold, with pieces to fit every personality.

A renowned couturier in the GCC region, Essa Walla’s pieces are known for being flamboyant, unique and often portray a mix of traditional aesthetics with new techniques, materials, and accents. Essa’s designs have become one of the biggest fashionable labels the GCC area, with all of our most beloved influencers being dressed in his exceptional pieces – even Lady Gaga has been spotted in Essa!


Of course, all of the collaboration pieces are catered to the Ramadan spirit, and you have your endless pick of modest kaftans and long flowy dresses. What’s great is that every personality will find what suits them from animal prints, florals, and bright, bold colors.


Essa’s work originally started with a specialization in Kaftans, but he later branched out into blouses and more funky, quirky designs. He takes pride in showcasing his unique spirit and style in every piece he creates, and his vision can be found nowhere else.


What’s so appealing about his creations, and something which translated into the collaboration with Splash at Centrepoint, was the simplicity of his designs in concept. However, the execution always brought something different that appeals to every type of woman, and especially during the festive season of Ramadan.


His own, distinctive personal style is characterized by his love of jewelry and layering which no one else can replicate. This personal love translates directly into his asymmetrical shapes that remain balanced and elegant.


His creations are perfect for the women looking to make a statement, while also remaining classy and chic. Wear these to a Suhour, and Iftar, or even during Eid and be sure that you will not go unnoticed.
