At the age of 25 I wear many hats. I founded the first vintage jewellery label in the GCC, WayedVintage, and am a buyer at The Fancy Bid, the biggest online auction site in the Middle East.
Being in fashion is a 24/7 job; your social and work life blend into one. I’ve hosted multiple events for international fashion houses like Sonya Rykiel, Maison Weill and Loewe.
I always enjoy collaborating with established brands. Labels I have worked with include Chanel, Ralph Lauren, Kenzo, Loewe and Wojooh. I am also a brand ambassador for Sunsilk.
The Secret has taught me so many things. It’s important to stay positive and attract what you want into your life.
People think I am a girly girl but I have a masculine side to my personality. I’m a lover of sea sports and adventures. I go jet-skiing when I have the time, and am into cars and racing.
I have some beautiful pieces I treasure. Rare jewellery designed by the late Elizabeth Taylor, Chanel items dating back to the 60’s and a diamond pendant given to me by my Father.
I have never worked for anyone as I started my business at the age of 15. But a year’s experience in corporate work that would have been good experience for me.
I have set goals for 2015; landing two magazine covers, securing long-term collaborations, launching a new business I’ve been working on for a while, becoming a certified stylist and taking my work international.
