FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Every cover story we do at Friday is exciting for the team, but this week’s one is something I am really happy to see. Mostly because we were able to answer the fun question, ‘Can we do a fashion shoot around the idea of Guns N’ Roses style?’ with a resounding ‘Yes, we can!’.
When we first discussed the idea, we thought it might be a stretch – would there even be any rock outfits in stores (we always shoot with things you can actually pick up in shops this weekend) that looks like the November Rain video? Uh, yeah. Totally.
Flannel shirts, distressed denim and big black boots are in style in a big way – or maybe, they never went away. In any case, I felt at once old – as I enjoyed wearing those clothes as a teen; happy – as I’d still like to wear them; and elated – as there’s that wonderful feeling when you pull something off. I don’t want to get all Nike commercial on you (although that is one cool ad) but I am sure we all love it when a dream (however big, small or Guns N’ Roses-themed) takes off. When a plan just comes together. (Something about that statement also makes me want to narrow my eyes and stroke a cat in a Bond villain-ish way.)
So keep at it. When they say no, let that be your motivation to prove them wrong. Do it somewhere else, better.
On that positive note, let me tell you about something else awesome that’s taking place next weekend – Friday’s going to be at Taste of Dubai! I’ll be there speaking to some of the best chefs around about food (that could go on for quite a long time, to be honest). If you think you’ve got what it takes to cook for the top chefs, join us in exclusive Friday sessions in the cooking challenge tent – head over to fridaymagazine.ae to find out how you can take part.
Or simply send us your photos of food that you’ve enjoyed at the event for our Storytellers page. Bon appétit!
