Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

March 9, 2017

It’s not everyday you get asked to be in a feature for Hello – so when the writers asked if I would be interested, I was like…errr…hello!?!?!?! Of course i would!!! Jokes aside, I was thrilled to be included in their vibrant “Girls about Town” article. It was all about women from Dubai making waves in the creative industry from different disciplines. There was a great mix of careers from acting to fitness and we were all brought together for our mutual love for fashion and couture. The shoot was styled by Rao Ali Khan who is a celebrity stylist […]

Bloomies Bags n’ more

February 15, 2017

I can’t explain the adrenaline of working on something really BIG! Bloomingdales, the famous department store from New York is synonymous with luxury – everything from their cakes to their sophisticated shoe department. They have a fabulous creative team here in Dubai and are one of my favorite clients. We wanted to work together on a number of artistic projects so here is a play by play of what I’ve been up to! I illustrated my first “little brown bag” sometime in 2015, after my promotional book for Ramadan. They wanted a fashionable and colorful bag depicting the Dubai store […]

An Artistic Wedding

February 9, 2017

I’ve been taking a bit of a breather from blogging lately. If you’re following me on instagram you’ll know that it’s because I’ve been busy planning my wedding. I thought I’d write a quick blog post about the big day and how I incorporated illustration and art into my big day. First, were the invitations. Obvs, I illustrated them. I went for something stylised and elegant. There were three invitations for three different events- the mehendi, the Reception and the Valima. Traditionally, the mehendi is a party with choreographed dancing, music and opulent colors. We had a whole Arabian Nights […]

Fashion Forward SS17

November 12, 2016

I love Fashion Forward but I have to say – this year was my favorite! It was a bit more special for me because I got to bring my soon to be husband Salman into my fashion world. He was a bit bewildered, much like a deer in headlights with the standard 2 hour queue for Amato’s show but other than that he quite enjoyed it. Here are a few highlights, illustrations and details of what I wore. Lets start with some jaunty, nautical menswear shall we? Inspired by the beauty of the ocean, Varoin Marwah translated waves into geometrical […]

Nailing’ it with Essie

October 26, 2016

Frankly, I don’t like regular nail polish – gel is perfect for someone fidgety like me. I find that whenever I get a manicure with regular polish, no matter HOW still and zombie-like I hold my hands out … rest assured, there is always, always a smudge. The only major bummer about gel is the tedious waiting time. This has become a thing of the past thanks to Essie who have combined the best of both products and have launched their new “gel couture” range. It acts like gel in terms of the look, feel and durability BUT it’s actually […]

Date night at Katana Dubai

October 3, 2016

This year is my favorite time of year! When the blistering heat of the city FINALLY subsides and you think to yourself with satisfaction that “winter is coming.” Unlike Game of Thrones, winter over HERE ain’t so sinister. It’s when all the fun, outdoorsy stuff fills up your calendar and you really can enjoy Dubai once again. Ripe Market, jazz nights, shisha, food trucks and of course, fine dining with a view. I discovered a total gem of a restaurant last week – Katana Dubai. The very hip and slick Japanese restaurant is a favorite with celebrities in LA and […]
