Who is Khalid bin Sultan Al Qasimi?

Khalid bin Sultan Al Qasimi is an Emirati fashion designer who is accredited as the founder of the Qasimi fashion label. He is best known for incorporating Arab elements in his male and female costume designs. Much of Al Qasimi's women's collection is inspired by the Gulf’s colourful jalabiya dresses. According to Al Qasimi, models should "resemble warriors walking out of a crypt and down the runway." His fashion brand has been showcased in numerous fashion hubs across the world, including London and Paris. Amongst some of the celebrities who have worn Qasimi outfits include Lady Gaga, Florence Welch and Cheryl Cole.

In 2004, Al Qasimi won two golden prizes in the competition of the First Arab-Euro Festival for Photography which was organised by the Arab Photographers Union in Europe under the theme of "History, technique and heritage." In personal life, Khalid bin Sultan Al Qasimi is the son of Sultan bin Mohamed Al-Qasimi, the current ruler of Sharjah and hails from the emirate's royal Al Qasimi family.
