'Moroccan Holiday' by Steven Meisel

I came across this 'Moroccan Holiday' editorial by photographer Steven Meisel for the May 2009 issue of Vogue Italia and fell completely in love. I'm such a fan of the full bold colors used and I love the retro oriental look that is becoming more and more popular in mainstream media. This makes me all the more eager to plan my own 'Moroccan Holiday'! Check out my favorites from the editorial:

Myriam Fares-Al Gasayad... Arab Lady Gaga?

More so than the music in this video, I'm in LOVE with the outfits Myriam wore. She's grown as an artist and I think she's finally found a personality that suits her. Check out these dresses!! Do I sense an Arab Lady Gaga in the works? Fabulous!

Malaak Autumn/Winter 11/12... Heaven in an Abaya

 After a LOOONG hiatus, I'm back and ready to serve up some more fashion from the Middle East, and I want to start with a long overdue post about one of my favorite abaya labels, Malaak. Run by Dubai based designer Huda N., the label celebrates the fusion of regional and international culture that is Dubai. Taking the abaya and making it fashionable is a daunting task but Malaak does it gracefully and even exceeds expectation. Not only is there a natural mix of cultures in the designs but also a mix of times with a lot of the pieces having a very retro look while still being modern and dare I say sexy! From the drapery to the studs, every piece has its own unique feature. I'm particularly a fan of the 80's-esque blazers with the studded shoulders. Below are my favorites from Malaak's Autumn/Winter 2011-12 collection:
