My pearl encrusted “headpiece” attracted some attention at Fashion Forward today, people commented on it throughout the day, saying it was pretty, asking where its from and where I had it put in etc etc…It was actually just an old necklace that I wore in my hair, I placed it on the side where my parting is and hid the chain at the back under my hair and kept in place with 2 hairgrips…
One of the regions leading designers, Rami Al Ali, said in a talk I attended that “Couture is the space to dream while pret is reality” dreaming in fashion keeps you away from the masses, it gives you a sense of identity while following trends just makes you one of the crowd.
Dare to dream! You don’t have to wear things the way you see them worn, if you think something looks good your probably right. I think its important to be expressive with your style, wear things because YOU like them not because you think others will! That way even if someone else doesn’t like what your wearing you wont care because YOU love it.
Having said that…I do hope my necklace headpieces catch on hahaha
Thought I’d quickly blog her show before the next one begins, there’s some good ones today , I can’t wait for Zayan The Label!
Amira Haroon’s opening piece was beautiful , A silky jumpsuit that dropped like a kaftan in two shades of red and embellished around the neck and back. Almost every other piece was made of lace which isn’t surprising for Amira who’s muse is to produce clothes with a story to tell, to be inspired by Alice in Wonderland type characters choosing to wear fiercely feminine pieces. Her floor length lace gowns were simple but beautiful, her style stems from the cut and the fabrics.
Zizzle was behind the scenes at Fashion Forward, an event taking place at the Madinat Arena showcasing local designers. The venue was dressed beautifully with colourful mannequins embellishing the fashion cafe and we couldn’t be happier with the media centre allowing us to post and upload straight from the event.
The fashion gallery is a beautiful Ode to the designers involved in the event which consisted of a podium with breathtaking pieces from every designer! We will be bringing you pics hot of the runway of our favourite pieces!
From interior design to fast cars, matt paint has taken the world of design by storm. Matt nail varnishes in greys, mushrooms and nudes were all the rage last season but I love the concept of wearing both Matt and gloss in the same shade. So simple but super effective, here are some great looks you can try at home 🙂
I’m currently reading “Like the Flowing River” by Paulo Coelho, Its a book filled with short stories and they all have valuable morals. I loved this little gem so I thought I would share it with you:
A boy was watching his grandmother write a letter. At one point he asked:
‘Are you writing a story about what we’ve done? Is it a story about me?’
His grandmother stopped writing her letter and said to her grandson:
I am writing about you, actually, but more important than the words is the pencil I’m using. I hope you will be like this pencil when you grow up.’
Intrigued, the boy looked at the pencil. It didn’t seem very special.
‘But it’s just like any other pencil I’ve ever seen!’
‘That depends on how you look at things. It has five qualities which, if you manage to hang on them, will make you a person who is always at peace with the world.’
‘First quality: you are capable of great things, but you must never forget that there is a hand guiding your steps. We call that hand God, and He always guides us according to His will.’
‘Second quality: now and then, I have to stop writing and use a sharpner. That makes the pencil suffer a little, but afterwards, he’s much sharper. So you, too, must learn to bear certain pains and sorrows, because they will make you a better person.
‘Third quality: the pencil always allows us to use an eraser to rub out any mistakes. This means that correcting something we did is not necessarily a bad thing; it helps to keep us on the road to justice.’
‘Fourth quality: what really matters in a pencil is not its wooden exterior, but the graphite inside. So always pay attention to what is happening inside you.’
‘Finally, the pencil’s fifth quality: it always leaves a mark. in just the same way, you should know that everything you do in life will leave a mark, so try to be conscious of that in your every action’
