Designer, 38, Saudi
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.
