The Six: Looks from Osman Yousefzada at LFW

DUBAI: British designer Osman Yousefzada showcased his latest creations at London Fashion Week and we picked out a few standout looks.

Quirky details

A sea green shirt dress with braided detailing on the hemline and cuffs, the cut of this number is easy to pull off and it’s quirky to say the least.

Summer suit

This pastel yellow suit featured flowy pants and a fitted blazer. The bright color makes this outfit the ideal choice for a summer’s day out.

Patchwork minidress

A colorful dress made up of a patchwork of vibrant colors in a shiny material. The slit sleeves give the dress an additional dose of dynamism.

Shine bright  

A glossy suit of bronze and deep blue that is definitely a statement piece. The patterned pantsuit  is fitted and glamorous enough for an evening out.  

 Zebra crossing

Animal print is having (yet another) moment and this zebra print dress definitely hits the mark. While the voluminous layers of the dress could drown the wearer, it is a statement-making frock nonetheless.

Clowning around  

A simple silhouette paired with an oversized pleated jacket in multiple colors. We aren’t fans of the oversized jacket or the shiny fabric, but we do appreciate the rich color palette.


Nora Attal has her day in the sun in Marrakesh

Nora Attal has her day in the sun in Marrakesh

DUBAI: British-Moroccan model Nora Attal posed up a storm in Marrakesh’s golden sunlight for a new campaign by fashion brand Zara.

The in-demand model shared snaps from the campaign, photographed by Christian Macdonald, on her Instagram account.

The collection of photographs show Attal modelling looks from Zara’s laid-back Spring/Summer 2019 collection against a backdrop of rippling sand dunes. Her featured ensembled include kaftans and long-length cardigans with hefty stripes in a clay-and-beige color palette.

Attal is no stranger to fronting campaigns — in January, the model was chosen as one of seven rising stars to feature in British fashion house Alexander McQueen’s latest campaign.

The Spring/Summer 2019 collection photoshoot was shot by British fashion and documentary photographer Jamie Hawkesworth and featured Attal wearing a number of cowboy-inspired looks.

The year has gotten off to a busy start for Attal, who was similarly in demand in 2018, when she took to the catwalk for Elie Saab, Loewe and Dior during Paris Fashion Week in September and starred in Italian fashion label Versace’s summer advert campaign.

In May, luxury e-retailer Farfetch launched in the Middle East with a little help from the young model.

She starred in a photoshoot wearing pieces from collections on sale on the platform. The colorful photographs were accompanied by a snappy, chatty interview with the young model.
Readers got the chance to gain insight into her earliest fashion memories and learn some off-the-cuff facts about the star.

“Recently I’ve been obsessed with noughties trends. Everyone was so cool and effortless back then. Now I go out in a full Juicy Couture tracksuit with no shame,” she told Farfetch at the time.

“If I wasn’t a model, I’d probably be at university, studying to get into something like criminal investigations, profiling or law,” she added.

Attal finished off 2018 by hitting the sand dunes in the UAE — however, this time it wasn’t part of a high-end photoshoot, but rather a day of fun.

The model enjoyed an afternoon of sandboarding in the emirate of Sharjah and even posted a snap on Instagram at the time.

“Apparently sandboarding is a thing,” she captioned the sunset shot.
