Haya Maraka is a Palestinian-American stylist, writer and luxury consultant. Her work spans the fields of fashion, luxury, thought and women’s empowerment.
Haya began her career as a fashion stylist and achieved her first successes in the industry at a very young age by bridging the gap between elite clientele in the Middle East and luxury fashion brands in the USA and Europe. She was a Bergdorf Goodman brand ambassador and has collaborated with numerous fashion brands including Dior and Harvey Nichols, amongst others. Haya has designed and executed numerous brand launches in the Middle East and facilitates brands within the luxury segment. Haya is proud to have facilitated the 1st female Emirati designer to show at New York Fashion Week. More recently, Haya has published her first book, A Lady Knows: Modes and Manners. It is a tongue-in-cheek approach to modern day manners and reviving glamour for the everyday.

Her interests veer toward all things nostalgic and has a love-hate relationship with social media. She draws inspiration from her global travels and fashion heritage to offer a fresh take on cultivating personal style. She understands the power of fashion and how the right outfit can transform a person’s entire essence.
She is constantly creating and musing on the state of fashion, consumption, life in the digital age and the world at large. She doesn’t follow the mainstream, but rather questions it. Rather than chasing trends, she empowers women to develop an authentic sense of personal style and etiquette. She has the rare ability to see beyond trends and is anything but conventional. Her entire career has been built on word of mouth and she has been featured in Vogue, L’Officiel and Harper’s Bazaar, to name a few.
