I am an experienced fashion professional with many years in the industry, specifically, as a Buying Manager and Senior Fashion Buyer for large department stores such as Harvey Nichols Kuwait and Galeries Lafayette Qatar, and as a brand manager for internationally known brands. Additionally, I was actively involved in the creation of designer concept stores in Kuwait (with further expansion within the Gulf Council Countries). I achieved all the aforementioned after completing an MBA in Design, Fashion and Luxury Goods from Italy. Moreover, I was specifically chosen to mentor and coach upcoming designers in Qatar, M7 (a pet, cherished project launched by her Royal Highness Princess (Sheikha) Al Mayassa).
Some of my accomplishments include being the buyer who launched the biggest footwear floors in two countries, Kuwait and Qatar, bringing on board top names. I introduced, what were at the time, relatively unknown brands on the global market and now much in demand. Think brands such as Axel Arigato, Mach & Mach and By Far (to name just a few).
