During Nicole's first day in Dubai she had a private fitting in her hotel room with Lamya Abedin of 'Queen Of Spades' Abayas.
Queen Of Spades is a national attire of the UAE.
Designed by Lamya Abedin - Having lived most of her life out of the UAE in various countries in the Gulf, Middle East, Europe and North Africa, she decided to take a lesson in the diversity of cultures and folklore and create something unique and novel in the fashion industry.
So she blended the cultures she had experienced into her designs, to give her national dress a whole new fashion statement.
Her designs have seen reflections of unique forms of traditional wear from around the world. Designing started as a passion more than a business.
It all started in 2008, while searching for a special abaya for herself in Dubai, she found she wasn't able to find that "One-of-a-Kind" piece and that led to create her own line of abayas – all individual pieces of creativity and exclusivity.
When many started to admire her unique ensembles, she was encouraged to let her creativity take another step and build her brand – Queen of Spades.
When one wears Queen Of Spades, they know that they are showcasing a piece of exclusivity and exquisite design.
Queen Of Spades shared their image of the fitting with Nicole Richie on Instagram and wrote;
