Here we shine a spotlight on three local sellers available on The Saffron Souk; Master Elliott, Beach 2 Barnyard and Melanie Gissing Design.

Master Elliott

Master Elliott was founded by Jade Quinn in July 2018.  Pregnant with her first child, she was unable to find sleepwear that did not cling or make her sweat, yet was comfortable and pretty enough to pack in her hospital bag – and so she decided to create her own. Master Elliott now offers both a range of maternity and non-maternity designs, including a beautiful brand new linen range. The brand is fast becoming known for its comfortable, high quality sleepwear that flatters all shapes and sizes.

Beach 2 Barnyard

Andronette is the owner of Beach 2 Barnyard and she loves being creative and working with her hands. She often has ideas that pop into her head at 2:00am and then exploring ways to bring the idea to life is her passion. Andronette started 10 years ago building rustic pallet furniture and supplying to garden centres. Her creations soon caught the eye of event companies and hotels and she has enjoyed working on a number of large interior fit outs and has loved seeing the joy on her client’s faces when it all comes together.  Being an avid gardener, she loves to turn an area into a green space and upon experimenting and making unique cement planters, her brand was born and are filling homes all over the GCC without breaking the bank.

Melanie Gissing Design


Melanie developed her small locally designed, locally made, boutique Resort Wear Brand - Melanie Gissing Design out of her love for fabrics and textiles. She holds a BA Hons Textiles Fashion Degree from London, and has always designed from a young age. Free size and flexible fashion are key elements to designing for women of all ages, culture and size, to empower them to feel confident and beautiful.
