Behind the Glam

Behind every great show is chaos. And it’s beautiful.

I have been introduced to the backstage culture three years ago and so far, I’ve managed to contribute to the then Style.com Arabia (now Vogue Arabia) and have been shooting this scene twice a year. And to be honest, for me, it’s probably the most addicting activities that I’ve every been to which makes me need to be in when the fashion season in Dubai arrives.

And within the course of that time, I have already met countless of amazing people and made good friends from both the production team to the models themselves. People who represent bodies of works from different designers making their art come alive in the catwalk.

I’ve been doing this for about 3 years now. The most recent one just ended. Chaotic as it was, but I can’t wait for the next one.

Welcome to the backstage. Enter left, exit right.
