Hot 100 2011 - Ezra Santos
As managing partner of Ezra Couture, Ezra has built an incredible name for himself during his two decades in the UAE. Currently living on the top floor of the Burj Residences, this tempered Filipino was one of the first residents to reside in the iconic tower and happily enjoys the glorious skyline at dusk while sharing cocktails with friends.
“Living in the UAE is indeed a privilege and the experience of a lifetime. It’s easily the most fast-paced country in the world in terms of development. Everything changes with mind-boggling progression, from hemlines to skylines!”
While Ezra may be luxuriating in his successes today, he admits his life wasn’t always so easy. “It is, to say the least, a path not without its thorns. It was painstaking, but to look back is certainly a humble testimony to the gratifying present and the even brighter future ahead.” And his advice to others wanting the same success? “Simply keep ahead – it’s concise, but helpful if you want to make it in the competitive world of fashion.”
