Following last week’s new episode of Bravo’s “Real Housewives of Dubai,” 20,000+ people rushed to MINAROE.COM, crashing Lesa’s website twice. Fashionistas and fans alike eagerly tried purchasing items from the Real Housewives of Dubai Star Lesa Milan Hall’s New Ready-To-Wear Line, leading to crashing the designers website twice after the hit series debut Already having dressed some of the biggest celebrities around the world including Beyonce, Gigi Hadid, Serena Williams, Katy Perry, Khloe Kardashian, and Jen Lilley to name a few, Lesa truly stands out as the entrepreneur, lady boss, and breakout star of Bravo’s most lavish franchise yet.
For the last 5 years, Mina Roe has been the leading brand in maternity fashion, showcasing cutting-edge designs throughout the Gulf and other parts of the world for expectant moms. Mina Roe was founded by Lesa Milan Hall, celebrity fashion designer and mother of 3 boys who has lived in Dubai for almost a decade. The brand’s pivotal role in the fashion industry and their success in providing clothing for every stage of motherhood has lead Mina Roe to expand into the non-maternity ready to wear segment. Celebrities from Beyonce to Jen Lilley have been spotted wearing Mina Roe and demand has been growing from customers to offer non-maternity clothes with the same bold looks that the luxury brand has become known for.
The inspiration behind the new collection came from new mothers who are at that in-between stage who no longer need maternity wear, but still cannot fit into their pre-pregnancy jeans. Mina Roe wants to help women feel confident with their new curves, protect their mental health and eliminate the need to “snap back” post pregnancy. This new collection will feature both in-house designs as well as pieces designed by other creatives – all made with great quality materials that are eye-catching and flattering to all body types. The majority of Mina Roe’s products are made in Dubai and the brand consciously supports female led businesses (from their manufacturers to their photographers), providing jobs in the region and illuminating local talent. Mina Roe is committed to sustainability and places focus on quality fashion that is not at the cost of the planet.
