Emirates Woman - - Editor's Letter - Carmel Har­ri­son EDI­TOR

WW hen I wrote my first edi­tor's let­ter back in March I promised to pro­vide a plat­form for the cre­atives of the Mid­dle East, to help the younger gen­er­a­tion of our re­gion be no­ticed, and be­come a hub for dis­cov­er­ing new tal­ent. Wel­come to The Dreamer’s Is­sue. This is­sue is a cel­e­bra­tion of our fu­ture artists, pho­tog­ra­phers, in­no­va­tors and vi­sion­ar­ies. We dis­cov­ered our cover star Skye Jones, a Saudi Ara­bi­anAr­me­nian-Eng­lish stu­dent and pho­tog­ra­pher who lives in New York on In­sta­gram. Not only has she had her pho­tog­ra­phy work pub­lished in var­i­ous mag­a­zines, she was also re­cently tapped to col­lab­o­rate and star in cult sun­glasses brand Roberi & Fraud’s lat­est cam­paign. She’s our one to watch this month. Read her story and see her un­seen per­sonal pho­tog­ra­phy work on page110.On­page102weal­sodis­cov­eredDubai- based­stu­dent,arti­s­tand­pho­tog­ra­pherKinzyAl Sa­heal on In­sta­gram. Her images on the themes of fe­male em­pow­er­ment, jus­tice and peace had us in­stantly mes­merised by her val­ues. Find a pre­view of the cur­rent ex­hi­bi­tion at the Louis Vuit­ton Fon­da­tion in Paris of Jean-Michel Basquiat’s work on page 50. The 21st cen­tury art icon was a true ex­am­ple of a dreamer. In the fash­ion sec­tion we dis­cuss old Cé­line meets new Ce­line on page 68 and Ric­cardo Tisci’s de­but col­lec­tion for Burberry on page 62, and in the beauty sec­tion, Con­stance Wu, the ac­tress from the hit film Crazy Rich Asians gives us the low down on her skin care rou­tine. I hope this is­sue in­spires you to fol­low your dreams.
