‘A young and interesting fashion designer originally from Oman, Ahmed Albalushi studied architecture and civil engineering but had a distinct and natural flair for fashion from a very young age.

He started his design career aged 18 when he launched a brand called ‘Kash5aful’ (pronounced ‘kashkha-ful’ - derived from the Arabic word for fabulous). His initial designs included distinctive T-Shirts featuring well known phrases, song lyrics or quotes in calligraphic designs, patterns and symbols that became a trend in the entire Gulf region.

Drawing upon his natural creative talents combined with his academic skill of architecture and design, Albalushi is now making his mark in the fashion world in tailoring and dressmaking with a special interest in creating ready-to-wear for both men and women with striking and flamboyant garments.
