Dubai, United Arab Emirates - January 13, 2021:  Six aspiring designers from Saudi Arabia & UAE have been selected by Persil Abaya Shampoo as the winners of Abaytik Stylik (Your Abaya, Your Style) abaya design competition. Each of them will be granted scholarships at French Fashion Institute ESMOD Dubai.

Part of a women empowerment campaign strategically held in conjunction with the re-launch of Persil 2in1 abaya shampoo, the competition encourages self-expression and provides a platform for abaya lovers to showcase their talent. The young women who vied for the scholarship prizes went through several stages of the competition and had the opportunity to be mentored through a coaching session by fashion industry experts in the region. 

The grand prize winner Richa Chouhan from the UAE will get a scholarship for the Modest Fashion & Abaya course. Through this course, she has the option to continue her studies and join the Undergraduate Fashion Design & Creation Degree Program.

Commenting on the sketch submissions, Amal said: 'The aspiring designers were judged based on their creativity, design, originality, confidence, mastery, and vision. Their sketches are a testament that we have so much talent in the region waiting to be discovered. The competition has allowed them to peek at the world of fashion design, but getting into the door is still up to their hard work and perseverance.”
