In 2020 we welcomed The New Era for Emirates Woman.
Thinking globally and supporting locally throughout the GCC has built a strong platform for us to champion the incredible women we celebrate both in print and across digital.
We have continued during unprecedented times to produce beautiful issues that celebrate outstanding individuals and we have done so in partnership with prestigious brands including NET-A-PORTER, Fendi, Boucheron, FARFETCH and more. We have also continued to foster and support emerging talent.
To celebrate the close 2020 we would love to congratulate both our nominees and winners below for not only being outstanding in their fields but for also joining us as ambassadors who have graced the pages of Emirates Woman this year.
We look forward to seeing you in 2021.
