She initially launched her label for today’s “independent, confident and well-travelled” woman. Melding classic silhouettes with modern style, Dr. Al Otaiba channels contemporary trends as well as Mediterranean and Middle Eastern heritage. She then created comfortable and unique pieces for childrenswear. As the company grew she also launched a Oud line with distinctive smells of wood chips.
