Sohad Acouri White was launched in 2012, offering a collection of bespoke haute couture bridal gowns. Although there are numerous excellent couture dress designers from the region, including Elie Saab, Reem Acra, Furne Amato, Rami al Ali and Zuhair Murad to name a few, Acouri stands out in that unlike the others, his gowns are beautifully sustainable.

An Eco-Green Dubai nominee, Acouri only uses eco-friendly fabrics in his couture gowns, including organic silk and cotton. He also ingeniously reuses the remaining textiles from his previous collections, and transforms them into innovative new designs.

His couture has graced the catwalks of Europe, and earned him an Ingredient Branding Partnership with lead-free crystal brand Swarovski Elements, for which he’s created some truly opulent couture gowns.
