De­scribe your style Boho-rock chic with a lot of clas­sic pieces. Fash­ion is... A way to de­scribe your­self with­out talk­ing. The true def­i­ni­tion of style is... When it’s unique and per­sonal. What do you love about Mid­dle East­ern style? It’s evolv­ing and I feel it’s try­ing to find its way in the world. I’m ex­cited to see its mark soon. What makes some­one stylish? When their style not only re­flects their per­son­al­ity but when it’s so unique that it be­comes their sig­na­ture and what they’re known for. Most mem­o­rable out­fit you’ve ever worn It’s al­ways evening dresses, so per­haps the white feath­ered dress by Aden Fash­ion I wore to a wed­ding in Monaco. Style mantra Fo­cus on one item of cloth­ing and make it shine. Less is more. How does fash­ion em­power you? It gives a voice to my mood. Favourite de­signer of all time I have a few but def­i­nitely Is­abel Marant and I have a soft spot for Vic­to­ria Beck­ham. Tip for stay­ing on trend this sea­son Pick one trend that works for you and then be cre­ative. Make it your own. Ul­ti­mate cat­walk queen Naomi Camp­bell – she owns the run­way like no­body else. Fash­ion fail Skirts on top of trousers – I can’t deal. Quirki­est item in your hand­bag A lit­tle fan that you plug into your iPhone. I can’t live with­out it. Desert is­land beauty pick Avène Eau Ther­male SPF 50+ sun­block and Uriage Eau Ther­male Bariesun lip balm. A/W18 must-buys Is­abel Marant cowboy boots, a Max Mara camel-coloured coat and a San­dro che­quered blazer. Fave place to shop in Mall of the Emi­rates Bou­tique 1, for the selec­tion, ser­vice and Is­abel Marant!
