A highly acclaimed Kuwaiti designer, honored for her outstanding work in the world of fashion, said that she was proud to depict a favorable image of Gulf women, who have long been known for their glamour.
Muntaha Al-Ajeel was feted in a lavish ceremony on Friday, where she claimed an award for elegance and leadership in a gala organized by the American Leadership Development Association (ALDA), in conjunction with 'The Leaders International' magazine. Speaking to KUNA, she said that she was ecstatic to have won the prize in an event attended by a bevy of Gulf envoys and British parliamentarians, noting that she would not rest on her laurels and strive to further her fashion brand.
Moreover, Al-Ajeel added that her fashion brand is now widespread in cities across the Gulf region, including Doha and Dubai. The Kuwaiti fashionista pointed out that her efforts to incorporate philanthropy into the world of fashion proved instrumental in her success, thanking His Highness the Amir Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah for the continued support.
Meanwhile, Kuwait's Ambassador to Britain Khaled Al-Duwaisan said that Al-Ajeel has proven that Kuwaiti women are more than capable of rising to the occasion.
