I hope your week is going well! I’m currently frozen, in my bed… Last week I got to work with Aneesa again for her Eid collection. This time I was behind the scenes instead of infront of the camera. For those of you who don’t know, I am a makeup artist and a stylist. I prefer being behind the scenes, contrary to popular belief.
The Eid collection is about understated glam – much like the previous collections. I feel I resonate with the collections because I too prefer simple and sophisticated as opposed to heavily embellished garments. My favourite is the black and grey abaya with a sheer detail at the neckline as well as the hemline; with the runner up for me, being the dress – style abaya with an elasticated waist and nude flower detail.
What I interpreted from this collection is the underlying earthy theme. There’s the apparent branch print detail, the flower detail and then theres’ nuances of the elements – earth, air, fire and water. I love how these elements are illustrated in the pops of colour.
Working with Shezan and Razana is always a blast. I think more than work, we laugh all day! This time I got to work with the beautiful Nuha Haroun who just added to the merriment.
