If you’re interested in the world of royalty, you’ll be delighted to learn that Princess Iman of Jordan has just announced her engagement to businessman Jameel Alexander Thermiotis. The announcement was made on Twitter and social media platforms, including Instagram and Facebook, through pictures of the happy couple together in Monaco and Abu Dhabi. As of this writing, no date has been set for the wedding yet, but it’s sure to make international headlines!
A Royal Wedding
Iman, 25, is the older daughter of Queen Rania and King Abdullah II of Jordan. She recently got engaged to Jameel Alexander Thermiotis. Jameel Thermiotis was born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1994. He is of Greek descent and is currently employed as a finance professional in New York. After graduating with a degree in Business Administration, he is now a managing partner at a venture capital fund called Financorp Holdings Corporation. Princess Iman and Jameel met in the US, where Iman attended Georgetown University. The announcement surprised royal fans because Princess Iman’s relationship with Thermiotis has been kept private and there’s still not much known about the future royal.
The Engagement Announced
The Royal Hashemite Court of Jordan formally announced the engagement. The official statement read that Her Royal Highness Princess Iman bint Abdullah II got engaged to Mr. Jameel Alexander Thermiotis on Tuesday, 5 July 2022, with their Royal Majesties King Abdullah II and Queen Rania Al Abdullah in attendance, as well as their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Al Hussein bin Abdullah II, Prince Hashem bin Abdullah II, and Princess Salma bint Abdullah II, in addition to family members of Mr. Thermiotis. It was also subtlety revealed in the official portrait released by the Royal Hashemite Court that Princess Iman is wearing a princess-cut diamond ring. Crown Prince Hussein also posted a picture of the couple and wished them a lifetime of happiness.
Christian Siriano Is Back With an Inclusive Bridal Collection
You know fashion designer Christian Siriano from his role as a judge on Bravo’s Project Runway and for his often extravagant yet incredibly gentle bridal collections that focus on accommodating all shapes and sizes. His most recent collection is just exquisite, and everyone can enjoy it — with sizes ranging from 0 to 28 and designs in all spectrums of chic, feminine, and bold, future brides are bound to fall in love with these gowns.
An Exciting New Collection by Christian Siriano
The news of Christian Siriano’s comeback took many by surprise, given that he hasn’t released a full bridal collection since his Spring 2018 Bridal line, which debuted in April 2017. Of course, the talented designer kept busy in the meantime. Aside from judging Project Runway, he shifted his focus to designing custom wedding dresses and attire for the rich and famous.
A Combination of Everything Christian Loves
The Bridal Spring 2021 collection offers 26 gowns that aren’t united around a single “inspiration” or style. They are rather a combination of Christian’s favorite silhouettes he has debuted on the runway throughout the years. He wanted to create a line for “that optimistic woman” who couldn’t get married last year and was really excited about walking down the aisle now, in 2021 and beyond. Siriano took his favorite designs and reworked them to make them feel new and fresh.
In talking about the new collection, Christian Siriano was very straightforward. He said that this line isn’t for everyone, but it is for all the brides who are emailing him and his team all day giving feedback and sharing what they want to see in a bridal gown. In a way, he says, that collection is exactly for them. That’s why there are many sizing options, a range of masculine-feminine designs, romantic slips, hybrid tuxedos, and voluminous ball gowns to match the changing tastes of the modern customer. That’s what modern fashion should be, says Christian.
