Friday - - Up Close And Personal -

In 2004, I pro­posed to ESMOD In­ter­na­tional, the world’s first and old­est fash­ion de­sign school, to open in Dubai. My daugh­ter, Canella, was the [driv­ing fac­tor] as she wanted to pur­sue fash­ion stud­ies but didn’t want to move back to France. She now has her own brand – Canella Hostal Cou­ture – and I’m so proud of our alumni, proud of my team and of what I have ac­com­plished in a coun­try where fash­ion ed­u­ca­tion was once non-ex­is­tent.
