Shimmer & Shine is a charity event. It was rather pleasant, with a lot of lovely sisters, stalls selling their goods such as hijabs, jewellery and delicious cupcakes! Several make up artist and hair stylist also took part in the event, dressing up the models for the fashion show (which unfortunately could not take pictures of due to confidential reasons...).
Since this event was organised for the first time, it was just natural to have experienced few ups and downs, like the fashion show was meant to only last one hour but it took way longer than that and some of the designers who booked stalls didn't turn up. It luckily did not effect much of the event and everything else remained very much organised and fun.
I do hope that Shimmer & Shine comes back next year inshallah, I'd be more than happy to attend again :)
Here are some pictures of the event:
I've gone through quite few job titles...including 'blogger' which I no longer am. Being raised and having lived in five different countries/cities (12 years in London, 9 years in Zürich/Switzerland, 5 years in Al Hudaydah/Yemen, 1 year in Nairobi/ Kenya and 2 years in Mogadishu/ Somalia) has allowed me to naturally intertwine respectively unique cultures to form my own distinctive creative identity. My strengths include excellent creativity and analytical skills, specializing in luxury fashion, PR, content creation, marketing communications and publishing.
