  3. Nadine Merabi

    Nadine is a talented fashion designer based in Manchester, and is best known for her stunning 'wow' red carpet dresses.

    Nadine did not start out her career in fashion design. She played hockey for England for 10 years, and built up a career in the marketing and events industry.

    However, she decided to take the plunge and teach herself how to sew and design clothes for herself and then her friends. She bought a sewing machine from Argos and taught herself with Youtube videos on how to use it and make garments. This ignited a passion for fashion, and she realised that there was a gap in the market for women’s evening wear which was unique and different, so she decided to launch her own business.

    Within a month, she had created 20 dresses and hired a rail in a Pop-up boutique – it was here where the Merabi label was launched.

    Since then her profile has sky rocketed,  and in the last 18 months she has shown at London Fashion Week, Manchester Fashion Week and Cayman Islands Fashion Week .

    She has dressed countless stars for the red carpet including : Brooke Vincent, Georgia May Foote, Michelle Collins, Cath Tyldsley, Michelle Heaton , Jessica Wright, Jennifer Metcalfe, Lucy Dixon, Chelsee Healey, Helen Flanagan, Tina O Brien and many more.

    Merabi is stocked in Selfridges Trafford, Selfridges Online, Merabi website  and select nationwide fashion boutiques.
