FFWD SS17: Style Madness
It's been a whiiiiiiile.
But I'm back, and listen to this.
Last weekend was a time of celebration, honouring as well as brilliance: Fashion Forward SS17 in D3, Dubai. Local and international designers once again came together to showcase some mind-blowing pieces. From sequins to prints, edgy to dreamy collections, talent filled the runways, turning the event into something spectacular, and more than a '3 day fashion show'. Simply brilliant.
But this was not a regular FFWD for me. I was given the insane opportunity to intern for the Brag Agency, the initial creators of the event. I was contacted via Instagram, and was directed a job within social media, such as handling the official Twitter @FFWDDXB account including their Instagram. Sponsored by Samsung, it was essential to shoot everything using one their phones. The quality is craaazy.
Having said that, I was granted with a AAA pass, or an 'All Access Area' pass. I was therefore directed to the front row for numerous runway shows, as well as within the media pit. This allowed me to take some killer shots, all including details of the pieces and portraits of models (up close and personal!)
This amazing opportunity allowed me to meet some amazing people. Bloggers, photographers, buyers, designers. House of Nomad designer, Ahmed El Sayed, reached to me personally, and let me know that he was 'obsessed' with my blog, and would love to work with me. My reaction is imaginable: completely awestruck !!! That was one of the most crazy things hands down ...
Here is series of photographs taken and edited by me, check them out, comment and like this blogpost! Let me know what you think.
