History and Influence
SARAY AND VALLEY is the result of a union between two Dubai based fashion labels previously known as Saray Couture and Valley. The brands have been in the market for sometime and have been appreciated by local and international buyers. Following a few short-term collaborations that turned into success brought together the idea to merge the brands and form one powerful team. Carrying on their individual brand names, which are valuable to the founders, they united the two names each representing the different cultures they come from and forming a new high fashion label.
SARAY AND VALLEY represents modest fashion and glamour; their pieces are a result of both skills and reflection of their individual styles. All the pieces are hand made in addition the embellishments are crafted by skilled crafts experts locally in the Northern Emirates and in India and Pakistan. The designers design and mix both western and eastern influences to cater to all styles.
