Ala Mairi: United Nations

The film The Last King of Scotland told the fictional story of Dr. Nicholas Garrigan  a young Scottish doctor who travelled to Uganda  to verify whether dictator Idi Amin had, in fact, declared himself the King of Scotland. It was a rare situation in which Scotland had become uniquely connected to a developing nation. 

Now, up-and-coming fashion brand Ala Mairi has created a new bond between Scotland and a majority world country–this time, Pakistan. 

There are no dodgy monarchs involved this time, however: Ala Mari is simply a luxury ethical fashion brand that uniquely fuses the cultures of Scotland and Pakistan in its garment designs, mainly by producing stunning colours, patterns and fabric that fuses the best traditions of both nations. The brand was a favourite on the EcoLuxe runway in London last year, and  Ala Mairi is also a social enterprise and supports the predominantly female artisans in both countries in earning a sustainable living from their skills.
We love the lush, velvety fabrics, intricate embroideries and minimalist cuts that define the brand, all of which you can see below in the brand’s recent look book, which proves beyond a doubt that even the most different of cultures can work together to create something singularly beautiful.
