The most exciting part in creating a collection – Photo shoot. It is normally the first time when I get to see the garment on a person. Yes.. i know.. there should be fitting (Let's just say it is not as simple as you think getting that done!).

On top of that, I get to work with the most talented photographer in Dubai - Mansoor Bhatti, aka Mannbutte. His style is very very different than the usual “goth-romance” or the “floating in abaya” look you see in the Middle East. His is sharp, provocative and edgy. Think i-D, Dazed or V Magazine. He is also a great friend. He has been supporting me and my label since conception. I can only say I'm very lucky to count him in my creative circle!

This time, we were also able to get Sophie Leach onboard. She is a favorite MUA among magazines in the GCC. You can see her work in frequently in Emirates Women or Viva magazine in Dubai.  We also have a beautiful and energetic model Anna-Marie with us, a London-based international model who happened to be in the UAE at the time! (Oh I'm so blessed!)

From organizing a shoot to creating amazing end product, it is never easy. But having a team I can trust makes it so much easier and fun. Check out some of our Behind The Scene outtakes!
