AMATO, which means ‘beloved’ in Italian, is UAE’s first global designer brand that has earned itself an international cult following – from royalty to international celebrities. Also, the AMATO Couture happens to be the brainchild of the much-awarded creative designer Furne One, who partnered with textile expert Rashid Ali, to build this Avant Garde label. From the very first unconventional yet outstandingly chic collection, AMATO Couture touched a chord with regional and international fashion elites from Heidi Klum and Tyra Banks to singing sensations such as Beyonce, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and Nicki Minaj, just to name a few. And, if you are as curious as we are about AMATO and the icon behind it, then worry not, because the man himself is giving us an inside snippet on AMATO Couture and himself.

This post has been in the making for quite some time. Those close to me know that I’m not all that when it comes to makeup. A little foundation and plum lip stain will take me a long way (not unless I have a photo shoot; that’s when the makeup artist goes all in).

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.

Her name is Abby, always standing in front of the mirror just like many young women her age. She wants to be an architect, while on the other she is forever putting on make-up and posing; for no one in particular I might add. She takes her own photos and doesn’t like sharing them.
