UAE-based fashionistas share style se­crets and sum­mer shop­ping lists.


Mariyah Gas­pa­cho, 36 is the woman be­hind the blog Mahryska, which is the Rus­sian trans­la­tion of her name. Mariyah, who is based in Dubai and is also a pho­tog­ra­pher, ex­udes a laid-back chic style that is per­fect for our sum­mer heat. She says this sea­son calls for sim­plic­ity. “I rec­om­mend stick­ing to light, easy fabrics and sooth­ing colours,” she says. “As for shop­ping, I’ve learned to stick to my ba­sics. They will last you longer and I be­lieve you can play around with them more rather than one-time trendy pieces.”
