Welcome to February’s – ‘The Love Issue’.

A year ago, I had a clear vision for Emirates Woman. Thanks to a lot of hard work from a dedicated team and some incredible partnerships, we’ve shown that when you love what you do, focus on your goals and stick to your guns, magic happens.

For this month’s cover shoot, we partnered with Saint Laurent, a brand very close to my heart in Timeless Appeal. This cover is something I envisioned a year ago and with the support of two very special people T & R and a lot of mutual love, it’s manifested into a reality. I couldn’t be prouder to have you as our cover partners for ‘The Love Issue’, thank you.

Our cover star Yasmine Sima is every inch as smart as she is beautiful, something that became clear to us during the shoot and is perfectly depicted in her interview Head & Heart.

We also partnered with Gucci X The North Face, to shoot incredible woman Raha Moharrak, the first Saudi woman to climb Mount Everest in The Adventurer.

With comfort as key post-pandemic, we look at luxury loungewear and the latest brands emerging in the space driving retail sales with exclusive interviews from Ru & Rocka in Lounge Lover and Old Sport Society in Old School.

Beauty wise, we focus on the best products to boost your 5am Club routine in Early Riser and the ideal investment buys to relax, unwind and take time out for yourself this month in Self-Care.

We look at the benefits of Rapid Transformational Therapy in The Power of Self-Love and we asked some of the most inspiring women we know, what love means to them in The Power of Love.

Throughout this issue, a clear pattern emerged in speaking to brands and individuals alike; that what is done in love is done well. So, do what you love and love what you do.
