Thirty-year-old Lebanese strategic planning manager Ousama Harb has won The Style Chamber’s design competition. The contest staged by the online retailer, required entrants to design a capsule collection of one scarf and two t-shirts under the theme of being ‘interconnected’. Harb’s pieces triumphed when the public voted them the most popular out of the shortlist of 10 budding designers. His collection will now be manufactured and sold on The Style Chamber’s website.

One of Harb’s t-shirt’s, and his scarf design, featured a 1-dirham coin that reads, in Arabic, ‘United World of the Emirates’. While the second t-shirt shows a burqa.

“We chose Ousama as the winner because his designs really exemplified the highest level of creativity while embracing a notion of national pride,” says Maryam Al Hamly, The Style Chamber’s Emirati partner and marketing director.
