1. TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF I’m Alina, a fashion designer for international evening wear based in Dubai. It’s almost a year since I started working as a fashion designer. Before I started this career, I did my business consulting masters in the UK at the University of Warwick. Then I came back to Dubai since my family is based here and I took a course in fashion designing. I started working on my brand in 2017 and launched my first collection in September 2018. My very first fashion show known as Royal Gala in Dubai was held in October 2018, just a month after we launched. I was able to do this with the support of other wonderful like- minded people. The response to the show was amazing. After six months, I dressed my first celebrity from India in March 2019. I was extremely happy to have landed this gig because she’s an analyst and very well-known. To get her at an early stage was a huge achievement. That opportunity spiralled, and I have since then dressed a number of other celebrities, but I believe I still have a long way to go. It’s just the start. 2. WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF FASHION? I believe that style is your silent story. It’s a way of expressing yourself and your personality without saying a word. Fashion inspires me every day. I eat, love, wear, and do fashion. I cannot imagine myself doing something else other than being a fashion designer. 3. HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN FASHION? I have always wanted to be a fashion designer. It inspired me, and I was very fascinated by the idea of doing something related to fashion. I grew up looking at my mom wearing beautiful gowns, and she’s the inspiration behind the brand. I’m very lucky to have her to look up to. She’s my strength, and she pushes me to achieve as a fashion designer. I came into fashion because of the matriarchs in my life, my mother and grandmother. My grandmother had a sewing machine when I was growing up, so I would watch her sew. After school, I’d come home and watch her stitching clothes for herself. She used to make simple clothes and I loved sitting beside her to look at every small detail. Apart from that, I used to go to tailor shops when I was about 12 or 13. I was very fascinated and attracted by things like laces, threads and colours. I had this thing in myself that I wanted to be unique. I wanted to wear different clothes from everybody else. I had designs inspired from different look books on internet. and I took them to the tailor and would ask them if they could recreate them for me. After going for a while, the tailors began to question where I got the designs, as they couldn’t believe that someone of my age had such an eye for fashion. When they were doing the beadwork and embroidery, I watched keenly. So, all in all, this has been attracting me since I was very young.

4. WHAT IS THE BEST PART ABOUT BEING A FASHION DESIGNER? I think the best part of being a fashion designer is that I learn every day and I get to do a lot of experiments with designs and with colours. There’s this creativity that is involved in this process that keeps me going. I pick up something new on a daily basis. There’s always something new, and I take risks. I’m able to do experiments, which I enjoy. That’s what I like. 5. WHAT’S YOUR BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR? I believe that I still have a long way to go, and it’s not even 10% of what I want to achieve, but it would be dressing up one of the most famous female celebrities for sure. She’s a living legend. To dress someone like her that you’ve been looking up to since you were a child is a huge achievement. 6. WHAT INSPIRES YOUR DESIGNS? I take inspiration from everywhere, whatever is around me, the colours and the place. For example, if I go to London, and I’m strolling around, I’ll take inspiration from a window display, a building, the colours and everything around me. If you look into my collections, there’s a different inspiration in each one of them. The first collection was inspired by the old glamour of Hollywood and its celebrities. The second collection was inspired by the beautiful Hyde Park in London. The third one was inspired by Italy’s Greenest Park. The current collection was inspired by the garden in the Netherlands. The fifth one will come out in September this year, and it is inspired by the red carpet and glamour of Hollywood. It has a lot of sequins and colors to play with, including some stylish suits and gowns. So every collection has something different to offer to the market.

7. WHO ARE YOUR TARGET CUSTOMERS? 10. BIGGEST FASHION NO-NO? When I design, I keep a wider audience in my mind. In my book, there’s no fashion no-no. I think one My designs are not limited to a particular audience, should do what they want to do. Be yourself, be it’s for everyone: for every age group, for every confident in what you’re doing.

IS A STAPLE PART OF EVERYONE’S WARDROBE HERE’S WHY! Denim has been a popular fashion trend for many years, but it’s been here for a long time. In fact, denim dates back to the mid-1600s. There are early accounts of its use in Renaissance Europe, even way before when it was popularised in America as its own national fabric. If anything, denim has always been related to factory workers, cowboys, truckers and greasers due to its sturdiness, toughness, and resistance to stains. Times have changed and denim has gained immense popularity in fashion books. It is also considered a sartorial must-have for both men’s and women’s wardrobe!

One of the perks of denim is that it could be fashioned in a variety of styles with countless outfits. It also adds an edgy accent to your look. Whether you’re dressing up casual or going smart-chic, denim is versatile and very obliging, if paired right! However, one wrong step could wind you up in a fashion faux-pas. And that’s where we come in. We’ve rounded up the dos and don’ts of denim styling. Next time you’re dealing with denim, you can avoid being the centre of unpleasant attention. FDWOEORNMIMEN One piece of denim gives years of wear— thanks to its all-season wearability. It is also universally-flattering and androgynous, as well as lightweight and ideally cotton-made. Denim shirts and jackets make a great choice of wear for summer. Besides, being low-maintenance and a fantastic layering piece, a denim jacket is light enough to keep you cool in the breezy, spring weather and warm enough to protect from the fall chill.

If you fancy the classic fit, blue wash denim jacket, you have to avoid buying cheap bargains that are even cheaper-looking than what you paid for. Even though with a blue jean jacket, the pairing possibilities are endless and not looking cheap is your biggest challenge. ABTHLNUEDECSJLHEAIARSNTSICJACKET Hence, you have to invest in an expensive-looking blue denim jacket in a clean-looking wash. Avoid faded or worn- out versions. In this case, a darker wash is a better option because it looks fresh, stylish, more of-the- moment and creates a slimming effect.

For a fail-safe approach, a With trousers, flared trousers, denim jacket goes on top of leggings, skirts, a denim shirt an all-black outfit or an all- as a top should be a match white outfit is a nice spin to an made in heaven. With both otherwise monochrome look. short and long dresses, or over jumpsuits as outerwear, a blue ADWEITTNWHIMIST jean jacket works a charm to create an effortless, everyday look! You can finish off the look with white sneakers for a sporty appearance. Or combine nude heels and a vintage beige bag for a smart-casual look. If you wish to switch things up and be more fashion-forward and unique, pick out two-toned, printed, patterned, embroidered, patch worked and different washes of denim. These are your best and new ways of trying out denim without looking boring! You could dress up your bottoms or billowy dresses in even more creative and casually-cool ways. To seal the deal, do justice to denim with structured accessories that lean on the neutral side. Tan, beige, fawn and cream colours of bags, belts and shoes add an expensive feel to your denim. Avoid acrylics and choose natural fabrics like leather or suede for a visually interesting combination.

ASCTUNYTDLSING The same can be said about denim shirts! Select a fit that envelops you and avoid loose, boxy and baggy fits. This is particularly important for skinny and athletic men. Once the fit is perfected, it’s more about denim washes, styling, mixing and matching.

You could pair a blue denim jacket with a different coloured blue shirt and bottoms; it works, you know! A simple blue denim shirt could be worn open over plain or striped T-shirts for a sleek, masculine look that never goes wrong!

HATTBFUHORONLOIWDCGLWKEEERTSR Eyebrows make or break your entire appearance, no matter how lush your hairstyle is or how flawless your makeup is. Skinny brows are long gone, it’s time to give your tweezers a break and hit full with your eyebrows. With our tips and hacks in this post, you can up your eyebrow game and get them on fleek!

01 GIVE YOUR Constant threading, plucking, and waxing can EYEBROWS permanently drive to thinned-out brows, talk about total A REST deforestation! Besides, overnight miracles don’t exist; instead, grow out your eyebrows. You’ll have to wait for at least five to eight weeks with no trimming, considering that eyebrows grow about 0.16 mm per day. The hardest part is the waiting period, especially in the first two weeks because the pull of taking down excess hair is irritatingly inviting. Refrain from spending too much time in front of the mirror and pondering over your eyebrows excessively. Devote your time doing something healthy for your eyebrows like drinking plenty of water which flushes out toxins from your body and promotes eyebrow growth as claimed by some experts. Don’t pluck the hair that might slightly frame your eyelids rakishly after two weeks or so. Line them in with an eyebrow pencil for a fuller yet softer appearance or conceal them with a concealer at best. Pick only the extra strands that materialise in the middle of the brow for a neater approach and leave eyebrow hair from above, below and the tail. 02 CLEAN You might suggestively “eye-roll” at this statement, but indeed we all tend to forget keeping our eyebrows clean or ignore the mere prospect. Eyebrows free from unneeded gunk are essential in supporting its growth. Keep them a distance apart from creams, lotions or moisturisers because chemicals in these items can clog the pores and disrupt the growing process. Whereas, keeping them clean would keep the pores unclogged and ready for its restorative process.

03 MASSAGE While you’re at it, try giving your eyebrows a massage regularly. This improves blood circulation and promotes thicker, fuller eyebrows. Massaging keeps the root of your eyebrows rejuvenated and eases down your strained forehead. The more relaxed you are, the better your body will recycle. Try oils like olive oil, coconut oil, and castor oil to massage your eyebrows before bed and leave it overnight. These oils are rich in nutrients and promote hair growth, stimulate circulation and increase cellular metabolism, which helps in regrowth and fuller, thicker brows over time while giving the TLC your brows need. Use these oils in their natural, purest form; diluted versions may not bestow the results you’re hoping for. 04 BRUSH Yes, you heard it right! Brushing your eyebrows is as necessary as taming your hair. Take a spoolie or use your old mascara brush (make sure it’s clean) and lightly flick it across the length of your brow using upward motions. Do this daily to acknowledge a change in your eyebrow growth because brushing eyebrows doesn’t only improve the flow of blood circulation but also gets rid of any unwanted dirt or leftover makeup stuck in those little strands. This process keeps your brows in good shape too!

05 EXFOLIATE Eyebrow exfoliation is crucial in encouraging growth. You don’t need any fancy scrubs for this purpose, use your regular facial scrub and exfoliate your eyebrows twice a week. This procedure nourishes the hair follicles and stimulates eyebrow growth. Wash off the product from your eyebrows thoroughly to remove all scrubbing particles. Brushing, in the end, will ensure your eyebrows are swept clean of any remaining granules. You can use a soft clean toothbrush to exfoliate your eyebrows as well. Be gentle, or you may end up losing some hair. Turning this into a nightly routine should encourage your brows to grow and also improve their hair cycle. 06 MOISTURISE To quicken things up, moisturising is the key to strike knee-deep when it comes to growing your eyebrows. We recommend eyebrow growth serums or eyebrow conditioning primers which comprise ingredients that enrich the brows for increased growth and strengthening the existing hair mutually—it’s a win-win situation, really! Particularly, for those who desire quick results without much effort. Even applying petroleum jelly to your brows works but this process takes time in accomplishing longer, thicker arches. It moisturises the skin under the brows, nourishes the hair, and locks in moisture to encourage the growth of hydrated brows. Not only that, it keeps the eyebrow hair in place, as well! Do this religiously three to four times a day daily. However, if you have acne-prone oily skin, the serum choice is better.

07 MAINTAIN Once you’ve acquired full brows, learn to maintain them. There’s a difference between plucking your brows and shaping them. Go minimal with the tweezers and concentrate more on acquiring a shape that suits your face. Whatever removal process you employ, remove your brow hair in soft lighting. Because doing so in excessive light translates to over-plucking — exactly what you need to avoid! Either hire professionals to do your eyebrows and learn from them or understand your face map to make a few complimentary changes. 08 FAKE IT ‘TIL YOU MAKE IT Lastly, groom your brows with makeup! Determine brows, you can try brow fibre gels. Brow fibre with a brush “the start and end” of your brows. gels have tiny micro-fibres similar to real hair Set your brows with a spoolie seeing the shape that stick to browhair and look part of them. And you want and begin filling in with an eyebrow simultaneously, enhances the look and volume of pencil, implementing feather-light pencil strokes your brows instantly. No, the fibres don’t come that mimic the natural line of your brows. Blur off unless you rinse with water. the strokes with slight eyebrow shadow, exerting gentle pressure. You’ll soon have natural, thicker If you have naturally light-coloured brows, invest and polished-looking brows in no time and in a brow tint that is two shades darker than your remember—practice makes perfect! original brow colour. Brow tints add a nice punch of colour to your brows, making them look more While you let time work its course around your prominent, bolder and beautiful!

Perfect eyebrows are purely trial and error! Obviously! You cannot have your gaps, patches, naturally sparse or plucked- stricken brows to grow overnight. It takes an effort and great patience to achieve the brow profile you desire. Instead of giving into sadness, opt for the challenge of achieving it. When there’s a will, there’s a way! We are with you on your eyebrow journey - may the odds be ever in your favour.

5. WHAT ARE YOUR HOBBIES? I rarely read literature, but I try to choose the best books. 48 Laws of Power is a very controversial work. I re-read it several times, and I discover something new for myself every time. I also engage in sports. In my childhood, I participated in agrobotics and dancing. I also like big tennis. Music is also a part of my soul. I regularly go to the gym and music helps in keeping a strong spirit. I also consider speaking with wise people as a great hobby of mine. 6. HOW DO YOU MAKE A FINAL DECISION? My final decision is not negotiable. When in doubt, I will consult with my relatives. I like to discuss new ideas with my team, and I listen to the opinion of professionals. But if I finally decide on something, then this is not subject for discussion. I believe that a man should make decisions and act. Talk less, act more. 7. WHAT ADVICE ARE YOU REMEMBERING TO KEEP YOURSELF GOING? One advice: Igor, you’re doing everything right! 8. TIPS ON HOW TO GAIN SUCCESS. There is a formula: it is your conscience. If you do everything with honesty, then you are guaranteed success! 9. HOW DO YOU HANDLE FAILURES? Of course, such moments arise in life. I always tell myself - Igor, it is a part of your path, this is an experience; this is not complexity— this is a new stage to become even stronger. We always have time to surrender, and surrender is not for us! 10. CAN YOU SHARE WITH US ONE FAILURE YOU HAD? If we are talking about failure in business, then I have a story. Military operations began in my country, and everything was quiet in my city. I decided to open a business centre. I thought about it for a long time, and I worked at it. The hostilities did not stop me. A month later, the war began in my city, just as soon as we opened the business centre that we worked developing for two months. At some point, we lost everything: our homes, businesses, and even loved ones. I took a chance and lost, but honestly, I do not regret it. You can’t even imagine how much stronger I have become.
