After looking at several collections to find inspiration for my first feature, I have decided not to focus on the themes of the designers instead I decided to focus on the multitude of textures that I saw. Your sense of touch will run amuck with the richness of fur, the decadence of leather and cheeky glam of sequins.

Choosing the pieces was half the battle, I felt that choosing the right location to shoot this editorial feature was an integral part in letting the texture of the clothes shine even brighter. I would like to thank my great photographer, Michael Velasco for suggesting that we head to Ras Al Khaimah's ghost town to shoot and to say that I am happy to have seen the contrast is perhaps my understatement of the year. :)

We shot all these rich fabriced clothes in September and to say that it was HAWT is again another understatement! But boy am I glad that we did it! Major thanks to my aunt for accompanying me and for being around to hand me a tissue when the sweat starts trickling down.

Anyway, I am not going to keep this long. I hope you all like my first feature and I'll see you all soon. :)
