Rêves d’Amazonie

Paris Couture Week is there. Sakina presented her first Haute Couture bag collection this week and I was lucky to her assistant and PR manager for the last 6 months. We have worked very hard to make this presentation a succes. The theme of this collection is Amazonian dreams. You can read here more about the presentation and collection. I’ve been also lucky that I’ve seen all her presentation till now since she started. You can see more about her previous collections here: Bridal, Pink dresses, Red dresses and her defilé in Beirut, Lebanon.

 

One of the great sponsors was Au Pays de la Fleur d’Oranger, a parfum brand from the south of France.

Prix de Diane 2017

Prix de Diane is one of the greatest events I’ve been to. Together with my friends, I went to these horse races. Wearing a head is obliged for woman, so it was time to buy a great head and to not be shy wearing it. I adore woman who dress up well, and a head is such an elegant and artistic expression of fashion. I’ve never seen so many people together dressed up so elegantly. I could definitely recommend fashion lovers to go to Prix de Diane at Chantilly, France to observe these amazing styles between watching the horse races.

It was very warm today, so unfortunately I didnt photograph a lot. I hope I can be there next year, because I love horses and the special events around it (like the polo match in Chantilly and The Netherlands)

The Making Of A Dress

For the last two months, I’ve been working on this project ‘The Making Of A Dress‘.  It is my very first full video I’ve ever made, after I’ve been doing some tests to get the video making skills. Sakina and I adore the old Hollywood style and we wanted to create a black and white video for her special and glamorous project, in collaboration with Marie Claire Arabia. Sakina designed an Haute Couture dress for French actress Hafsia Herzi, who was on the red carpet of Festival de Cannes for the closing ceremony.

Or watch it on the Marie Claire Arabia website here. (They added a white filter on the video for the Arabic subtitles)

ELLE Arabia – Sakina Paris

Ever since I joined the Sakina Paris team, I have been photographing inside the atelier besides being Sakina’s assistant. This week we planned a special photoshoot: a digital and printed article for ELLE Arabia. Lucky me, Sakina wanted me to take her portraits. Our lovely make-up artist Nora Kourkis from Sweden joined us for the shooting day, and created the most beautiful make up on Sakina.

Photographing and filming are two jobs close to each other. Sakina gave me the chance to edit the video, even though I had no experience in editing. The video is filmed by Manuel Laurent, and the interview is filmed by me.

You can read the article (in Arabic) here.

P.s. We are proudly organizing Sakina’s debut at Beirut Fashion Week in Libanon!

Chantilly Rallye d’Aumale 2017

The weekend of 9 april 2017 couldn’t be better by visiting the Polo & Rally event in Chantilly together with my friends and new teammates of polo Team Architects. A perfect Sunday with no clouds, only blue sky, relaxing atmosphere and stunning outfits walking by while watching the polo match and the oldtimer cars arriving from their rally concours. A bottle of cold champagne is popped open after the picnic lunch. How much fun was this day! I feel happy and blessed. When we drove back home to Paris, we listened to Take on me – Aha and to the following song of Nina Simone:
