London-based costume designer Kate Tabor, who has created looks for many stars including Katy Perry, has partnered with Emirati designer Huda Al Nuaimi to create a dress for Costa Coffee that’s inspired by the region.

Influenced by the coffee brand’s foam, the dress is one of three looks to be created by Tabor, in collaboration with talents from around the world. Called Cold Foam Couture, the creations were commissioned to celebrate the launch of Costa Coffee’s new Cold Foam.

“I was delighted to be asked to be part of the Costa Cold Foam Couture project. It’s an exciting time for the Middle East fashion scene as the style becomes bolder and more experimental, so I’m proud to represent Middle Eastern women’s fashion through such a quirky and creative medium,” Al Nuaimi said.

The three dresses took Tabor more than three weeks, 10 metres of wetsuit material and 10 litres of cold foam to create.
