“It’s a shoot I will show my children one day, very different and another side of me I only discovered that day at the shoot,” says cover star of our ‘The Summer Escape’ issue, Rania Fawaz. Along with the Emirates Woman team, the Dubai-based content creative braved the 45-degree heat and powered through a 12-hour shoot in style.

Shot at the picturesque Four Seasons Resort Jumeirah Beach, the setting was a beautiful reminder of everything Fawaz loves about the city she has called home all her life. “Growing up in Dubai is a blessing, I was influenced by both Arab and foreign cultures and it definitely did make my childhood more interesting.”

Dressed in the perfect summer getaway wardrobe, all available at Boutique 1 via, Fawaz has a distinct personal style, but loves to play with fashion and hopes to one day do a lot more. “Fashion has been something in my family for generations. My dream is to have my own label and it’s something I’m currently working towards.”

Her determined focus yet youthful sense of adventure perfectly captures what the issue represents – the spirit of wanderlust that sees no boundaries.

Also featured in the latest issue are exclusive interviews with Stephanie Phair, Farfetch’s Chief Customer Officer, master milliner Ruslan Baginskiy, Lisa Marie Fernandez and Greenpacha – the brand weaving it’s own kind of sustainable magic into beachside-appropriate hats.
