So in today’s post I’ll move a little bit away from my beaten path and touch a little bit on fashion (not that I haven’t done that before). This is because I just happen to like PUMA and how they are keeping the flame alive and continuing to inspire confidence in women everywhere. They are currently doing this with the DO YOU campaign for Spring-Summer ’17, and have none other than Cara Delevingne showing off her own take on the latest Basket and Suede heart styles.
When I was getting invited for the Max 2017 Spring Collection fashion show, I was told it’s going to be a unique event. Why? Because this time round, it was fashion for real people; meaning people like you and I (still not sure if I’m a real person) working that runway. Fashion for real people in this context meant that moms, daughters, sons, fathers and more relatives were taking part in the Max 2017 spring collection show. The whole soirée was made up of the normal Jane & Fatima, and Abdul & Vishal, instead of professional models or super models.
Global Village Dubai is the one place that brings a multitude of cultures under one roof. Out of the 30 pavilions representing 75+ countries, the beautiful and exotic colors of African fashion stand out. This is not new to some us. For a while now, fashion trends emerging from Africa have been rapidly becoming a global phenomenon. And if you’re a lover of fashion and exotic themes, there is no better for you to experience all these vibrant blends of traditional and contemporary creations than at Global Village Dubai.
Sometimes when a piece of cloth fits, it doesn’t mean that it flatters your body shape. The same thinking can also be applied when it comes to buying a swimsuit. You have to find the right swimsuit that will completely flatter your body shape; regardless if you are curvy, slim or somewhere in-between.
In the BEDOUIN SS17 collection – the Urban Nomad, designer Andraya Farrag draws inspiration from the Moroccan and nomadic Berbers with her own contemporary minimalist twist.
The Urban Nomad is depicted in the use of rich fabrics like jacquards inspired by Berber rugs and delicate silks with a subtle metallic sheen. This plays well into the BEDOUIN SS17 collection luxurious yet easy-to-wear design.
The MAX Winter 2016 collection is finally here and we cannot help noticing that it’s inspired by the retro era of the 1970s. The much loved value fashion brand in the Middle East has not disappointed, that is if you love that 70s look. And to say the least, I have been a big fan of MAX; ever since I set foot on this side of the Sahara.
Children’s Lane is inspiring us with some stylish fashion pieces for kids. In today’s post, we, in conjunction with Children’s Lane, have carefully selected a few pieces from this vintage-inspired children’s boutique in Abu Dhabi. Even little girls have a right to look not only pretty, but fashionable as well!
