‘Al Aniqa’ celebrates leading women in luxury and fashion


Al Aniqa, the special edition fashion and beauty magazine published by Zahrat Al Khaleej, is celebrating women at the top of the luxury and fashion industries this summer, with a hot new issue packed with exclusive interviews, luxury fashion, beauty and travel features, and the latest style trends from the Middle East and beyond.

The latest issue of Al Aniqa is available free-of-charge with Zahrat Al Khaleej from the 28th of May, and will also be sold as a stand-alone edition for three months from mid June for a AED 10 copy price.

Milia Maroun, best known as the creative mind behind the luxury prêt-a-porter brand “Milia M” speaks exclusively in the latest issue of Al Aniqa, where the Lebanese designer reveals her secrets to successful entrepreneurship for young women in the Arab world. While Kuwaiti designer, Rana Al Naqeeb, discusses her stylish collections of lounge and beach wear that are taking Hollywood by storm.

Al Aniqa readers will also get an exclusive look into the life of Caroline Scheufele-Gruosi – the co-CEO of premium watch and jewellery maker, Chopard. Led by famous photographer Iris Brosch, the Al Aniqa creative team spent the day with Scheufele-Gruosi in Geneva to capture a stunning photo shoot and speak in-depth with a woman who has redefined luxury in her own way.

Brother and sister design duo, Ahmad and Zeina Abou Chaaban, also talk to Al Aniqa about “Palestyle” – the unique design label that integrates traditional Palestinian artisanal skills into modern fashion. From their home in Dubai, the two designers speak about carving a path in the fashion world while supporting a humanitarian cause, and their experience working with women living in remote Palestinian villages to create their high-fashion brand.

“In each special edition magazine, we attempt to showcase the achievements of a number of amazing individuals from around the world, in order to inspire and engage our readers. Al Aniqa is no exception, and in the latest issue we showcase a range of successful women who have left their unique mark on the luxury and fashion fields, including leading regional designers Milia Maroun and Rana Al Naqeeb, as well as the legendary Caroline Scheufele-Gruosi of Chopard,” said Souha Abbas, Manager of the Special Editions Division at Abu Dhabi Media, publisher of Zahrat Al Khaleej.

“We also aim to highlight local industry figures who are making a difference in the region, and there is no better example than the amazing young designers behind ‘Palestyle’, who are profiled in the new edition of Al Aniqa,” added Abbas.

Over in the men’s section, Al Aniqa also meets with artist Sacha Jafri to talk about his four-year journey across 32 third-world countries, working with over 300,000 children to create his latest art collection. While the team also has a chat with Jeremy Langmead, former editor of Esquire, about his in his new role at designer online menswear store, Mr. Porter.

Guest photographer Belinda Muller will also inspire readers with a vivid, seventies inspired fashion shoot, while a visit to the uber trendy Maison Moschino in Milan will certainly start readers dreaming of a luxury vacation.
