November’s – ‘The Timelessness Issue’ – Download Now

Welcome to The Timelessness Issue.

In a year that celebrates the 50th anniversary of an incredible region, we are also privileged to be celebrating 40 years of Emirates Woman.

It is an absolute pleasure to be at the helm of the brand as it celebrates such a key milestone, and never before do I feel as though we have championed our own incredible women, not only from the region but on a global scale of relevance than we do today.

I am incredibly proud of all that has been achieved by the team and I during the last 22 months in terms of driving Emirates Woman in a direction that focuses on growing globally and supporting locally through a laser focus on quality over quantity in every form from strategy and vision to partnerships and execution. I am also very grateful for the trust of both Ian Fairservice and Andrew Wingrove in being able to do so – thank you.

As Emirates Woman hits this 40-year anniversary milestone, it felt like the perfect time to partner with a brand also aligned with championing incredible women on a global scale for the cover, NET-A-PORTER. As an ode to all women of the region we chose a piece from Judith Leiber designed exclusively for NET-A-PORTER to celebrate the UAE’s 50th anniversary and that evoked a sense of timeless elegance, quality and uniqueness – the very same we see in those incredible individuals we champion.


In this issue, we have exclusive interviews with a long list of incredible women, one of whom is Nisreen Shocair, CEO Middle East at YOOX NET-A-PORTER who discusses steering the brand in the region with precision in A Clear Direction. Beauty mogul Huda Kattan discusses what it takes to grow an empire from scratch in The Billion Dollar Empire and Amna Al Habtoor, Founder of Arcadia, highlights the importance of precision in scaling a brand in Culture & Growth.

We also spoke to the women behind the scenes of the Dubai Future Foundation and Museum of the Future in Looking to the Future on, Nouf Omar, the youngest female Emirati pilot in Soaring High and Founder of Arabian Gazelles, Hanan Mazouzi Sobati in Breaking Barriers. Finally, some of the most incredible women who champion us shared their messages in celebration of EW’s 40th anniversary in An Ode to Emirates Woman.

When we asked many incredible women we know what timelessness meant to them, the resounding answer related back to values of integrity, something you will see throughout this issue. With special thanks to two dear friends N & Y, who supported to make this issue happen. Thank you for having our back as we have yours.

When women (and men) support women, magic happens.
