“Rules are made to be broken, so I mix and match my prints”
Personal style: I like to be comfortable and always like to think outside the box. My favourite thing is to dress up jeans with statement jewellery and big hair.
Relationship with art: I’m a lover of the arts, especially within the Middle East. It’s incredible to watch the movement within this art scene.
The collection: There’s a lot of amazing structure that you wouldn’t expect from collaboration with Target. Peter Pilotto has truly stayed true to the brand.
Rules of print: Rules are made to be broken, so I mix and match my prints. I see my outfit as a blank canvas and it’s there to be experimented with.

“Peter Pilotto has really led the way in making print fashionable and attractive. The pieces in this collection are fun, yet remain elegant”
Personal style: I never follow mainstream fashion. I put my ensembles together with my personality.
Relationship with art: I’m so proud to be apart of the driving force behind Dubai’s art scene. I love watching it grow with this booming city and fashion is a huge part of that.
The collection: Peter Pilotto has really led the way in making print really fashionable and attractive. The pieces in this collection are fun, attractive yet remain elegant.
Rules of print: If you wear too many conflicting prints it can be a disaster, so opt for a dress to make a bold statement.

Occupation: Member Relations Manager at Capital Club
“I see art and pull inspiration from everything. With collections such as this one, I can see the genius behind the prints”
Personal style: I always pair cool pieces together. I don’t take much note on what’s in season. I constantly think of styling as a whole and what each item would work well with what as a final outfit.
Relationship with art: I see art and pull inspiration from everything. With collections such as this one I can see the genius behind the prints.
The collection: I want every single piece of this collection. I love that it’s limited edition, it’s exciting knowing not everyone will be wearing the same pieces.
Rules of print: I think you have to find the right balance. As long as the cut, colour and fit are modern and work then you cant really go wrong.
