It featured the work of Kuwaiti designer Aseel Al-Rowaished who unveiled her latest collection and generously donated 10 percent of the show’s revenue to Tawasul.
Al-Rowaished is the daughter of renowned Kuwaiti singer Abdalla Al-Rowaished. She’s recently emerged as one of the most exciting talents among the region’s fashion crowd. The fashion show hosted coincides with the ongoing Tawasul Online Charity Auction, which brings together art with charity to give orphans a new lease of life.

Under the generous patronage of HH Dr Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al-Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council and Ruler of Sharjah and Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher Bint Mohammed Al Qasimi, Wife of the Ruler of Sharjah, Chairperson of the Supreme Council for Family Affairs and Patron of Sharjah Business Women Council, Tawasul, a Sharjah-based Fund initiated by the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, joined partnership with the Sharjah Business Women Council, in a mission to use education as a stimulus to give orphans full control of their future,
“The words ‘orphans’ and ‘glamour’ are normally never used in the same conversation, let alone the same sentence – but we are changing mindsets by making it fashionable to be charitable,” said Jasmin Ruehling, Program Executive Traineer at the Sharjah Business Women Council. “By blending charity with art, fashion and other creative modes of expression, we will make our fundraising events as fresh and vibrant as the children themselves.”
A powerful initiative, if we can learn to give back both visually through art and fashion and financially, through business initiatives launched by such industries, then hopefully children who are in a destitute state will have more hope for the future.
