Preview of Qasimi fall 2020 collection
The death last year of emerging talent Khalid Al Qasimi, second son of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Mohammad Al Qasimi of the United Arab Emirates, did not stop the brand from moving ahead, and into a new decade.
The designer’s twin sister Hoor Al Qasimi, who has taken over as creative director of the brand, said she is determined to preserve and further Khalid’s legacy, “by continuing to do the work that he loved and devoted his life to, and to keep fighting for the same values and ideals that he stood by.”
With a background in contemporary art, she is new to the world of fashion but has been “learning a lot about the business through his very devoted team that has been a great support to me. The art world is indeed very different from the fashion world, but I’ve noticed a lot of crossovers that have helped bridge the gap,” she said.
“With my experience as someone working in the contemporary art scene for the last 18 years, I am more than certain my influences will be visible,” she added. Qasimi holds a bachelor’s degree from Slade School of Fine Art and
