Welcome to The Icon Issue.

With special thanks to the Museum of the Future for allowing us to be the first to shoot at their iconic location. A truly incredible landmark recognized not only within the region but globally having received the accolade of one of the 14 most beautiful museums in the world, prior to even opening.

Thank you also to K & G for their vision and F for being a dream in making this happen.

We are exceptionally proud to have partnered with FENDI for our cover shoot in this issue, a powerhouse of a brand that for this season sees Mr. Kim Jones at the helm, delivering nothing short of an iconic collection for FW21.

In this issue, we champion people who stand out and achieve excellence in their field from emerging brands that have gone global in a short space of time such as Sporty & Rich in The New Icon to homegrown talent and Emirati designer Manaal Al Hammadi in An Icon of Creativity. We are also very proud to include a guest-edited section in partnership with the Arab Fashion Council in The Ones To Watch, outlining the new names in design you need to know.

The Runway Report is your guide to FW21 dressing for the season ahead.

We have exclusive interviews with Her Excellency Sheikha Hind bint Majid Al Qasimi, Chairperson of the Sharjah Business Women Council in The Business Mentor, Emirati entrepreneur Sheikha Al Mheiri in The Inspirational Entrepreneur, Khadija Al Bastaki, Executive Director of d3 in The Director, Her Excellency Khawla Al Serkal – Director General of Sharjah Ladies Club, Hikmat Al Kaitoob in The Icon Creator, Nadia Zaal, Co-Founder of Zaya in The Leader, and an interview with multidisciplinary designer Kholoud Sharafi in An Iconic Vision. While we ask some of the most incredible women we know, who or what is iconic to them in Icon on Icons.

Further afield, we speak to Vladislav Doronin, CEO, Owner and Chairman of AMAN in The Superlative Stay and Founder of 111SKIN, globally renowned in his ability to harness all things youthful in terms of beauty in The Precision Surgeon.

In a year that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the UAE and 40th anniversary of Emirates Woman, we can be reminded of the words of Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, Founder of the UAE: The real spirit behind progress is the human spirit.”

In recent times that have tested what we are made of, I have seen nothing less than a determination of human spirit which deserves icon status. In this issue, we thank our partners, our teammates, our mentors and our families, for they are all icons in different forms.
