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

We are the mother, the best friend, the ca­reer wo­man, the sis­ter, the carer…but when are we just, us? This year is about self-love, giv­ing our­selves a pat on the back once in a while, and hold­ing our hands up and ad­mit­ting that some­times we can’t do it all, and that’s okay. Wel­come to the hon­est is­sue. We’ll be pay­ing more at­ten­tion to the en­vi­ron­ment and ex­plor­ing more hon­est fash­ion and beauty, and cel­e­brat­ing the evo­lu­tion of a wo­man’s role. On page 42 Tu­nisian pho­tog­ra­pher Moez Achour brings real is­sues to life through fash­ion, and our cover star Joan Smalls tells us how she stays grounded and re­mains fo­cused on page 50. In a bid to in­spire up­cy­cling, we re-work the clas­sic wardrobe sta­ples on page 30 and our main fash­ion story shows the strength of a wo­man when she’s lost every­thing. We pro­file the un­stop­pable Huda Kat­tan on page 88 in cel­e­bra­tion of her fra­grance launch, Kay­ali, and Stella Mc­Cart­ney re­veals in an ex­clu­sive in­ter­view how she’s aim­ing for her brand to have zero im­pact on the planet this year. We hope you’ll join us in mak­ing a more con­scious ef­fort to be kind to our­selves, and the world around us in 2019. Happy New Year!
