Prior to launching www.anazahra.com, the team that is entirely made of women (not to mention gorgeous ones) gathered for a photoshoot at the Villa Rotana hotel on Sheikh Zaid Road, Dubai.
As previously mentioned, this blog is in Arabic and it covers almost all aspects of a woman’s lifestyle. I contribute to this site and my section is about my fashion diaries in a very personal way. If you don’t read Arabic, feel free to use Google Translate http://translate.google.com/. I’m sure somethings might not make sense, but you’ll get the point.
So far, I hear that my diaries (which can get personal) are the most popular.. Ironically.
Here are some of my favorite pictures from the photoshoot
For those familiar with the Arab Media, Zahrat Al Khaleej magazine is one of the top 3 in the GCC. The team behind Zahrat Al Khaleej has come together to extend their vision into an Arabic only website under the name of Ana Zahra. Incidentally, Ana Zahra means (I’m a flower). The website will be under www.anazahra.com
It will be covering lifestyle, fashion and beauty. Contributers will be from Paris, Saudi Arabia, Beirut, and of course the UAE.
A few months ago, I was approached by Zoya Sakr, most likely the tallest lady I’ve ever met. But also one of the finest, most elegant and has some mystery in her eyes. She observes a lot.. she appreciates well.
After hearing about my lifestyle and all that I do, I was immediately categorized as one of their Inspirational Women and was requested to write my diaries to Ana Zahra.
The challenge to me was to write in Arabic. I “was” the top student in high school with my Arabic, but that kind of evaporated throughout the years for the lack of practice. However, when I started writing, it all started flooding. I had a style in writing. Its easy yet deep. At least thats how I like to think about it. I hope you’ll enjoy it.
The first few articles will be more like an introduction and talking about my history on how I got into Fashion, talking about each collection, what was behind it and what it meant to me, my styling career and lots about my family.
Its about my personal fashion oriented life.
My policy was to delete as less as possible. Just let it out, be myself and within the borders of respecting the public.
Experts and contributors will include the likes of Joelle Mardinian, who looked stunning wearing one of my Love Affair dresses at our group photoshoot. I’ll write a separate blog about that.
For now, I’d like to thank Zoya, Ana Zahra Team, my family and all of those who have supported me.
Do check out www.anazahra.com and I really hope you’ll enjoy it.
