Rather than rely on her royal connections, the grand-daughter of UAE President Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan and daughter of Sheikh Khalifa bin Saif bin Mohammed Al Nahyan and Sheikha Moza bint Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Mariam, is breaking ground as a female member of the royal family venturing onto a relatively public stage. Despite her privileged background, H.H. Sheikha Mariam Khalifa Bin Saif is determined to create success with her own merit.
MKS launched its first debut stunning and modern jewellery collection in January 2013, entitled “Little Hearts”. Determined to key in on the power of jewellery as a keepsake, MKS wanted “to create jewellery that is symbolic; that not only looks nice but also has meaning". Her love and passion for jewellery has inspired a truly stunning collection which she now presents for all to enjoy throughout the UAE and the world.
In terms of media exposure, MKS has been modeled by Alicia Keys and Naomie Harris on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar Arabia (September 2013, December 2013, February 2014). MKS was also featured in the Front Row Mode Fashion guide by Bergdorf Goodman, New York (MAY 2014). MKS takes part in many international exhibitions including The Muse Majlis, Abu Dhabi Fashion Days, Ataya exhibition under the patronage by H.H Sheikha Shamsa Bint Hamdan Al Nahyan and Red Crescent UAE.
