White Is The New Black!
Mayssa/Lebanon/Artistic Director and Curator of the Katara Art Centre
Comme de Garcons! The dress just screams it. If you’re a fashion-geek like me, you should be able to spot a Comme de Garcons from a mile away. The entire look also screams out ‘I AM AN ARTISTIC PERSON’. Well, maybe not as obnoxious as having that statement all in caps, but it is a proven fact that most creative thinkers are more adventurous in what they wear.
I’m a MASSIVE fan of those shoes.
So what’s the most daring outfit you’ve worn, apart from that gaudy halloween costume you wore two years ago? Is there an item of clothing you often wear while you’re outside of Doha, but don’t dare to wear while you’re here? I know most people get a little restrained in what they wear when they move to Qatar. So what? You get stared at a little. Just as long as you respect the local traditions…
Side note: Do you love independent designers? You should pop by the Katara Art Centre and check out their Pop-up Shop. It showcases all top Beirut-based designers with items ranging from badges to books and t-shirts to tea cups. It is worth a look-see! Especially if you love kitsch things!
