I thought it would be great to get someone elses view on the latest fashion trends, and what better than to ask my bestie Neda, so I asked about the common trends that she has seen in Qatar and she said...
N: i dont really know, like normal fashion wise, a lot of it is inspired by whats trending in the states, its like very typical and what stands out, however within the Qatari scene its more materialistic rather than what undeneath the abaya thats the only way that people can like have their individuality, because it doesn't show when we put on the abaya we have to like conform to the way society in Qatar is, in order to express our individuality
So then I asked her..
Me: What trends have you seen that have become common in the Qatari fashion scene and she said...
N: Okay with Abayas; right now the trend is to have an abaya that is straight and flares at the bottom, before it used to be the waited abayas that looked like dresses, with shoes its more heels and sandals because Qatar is a hot country, i've mainly seen the Hermes sandals and the prada sandals and the Manolo Blahnik flats and heels
(May I just add, when I think Manolo I think Carrie Bradshaw, being proposed to by Big in the satin blue and broch encrusted 'Hangasi' Manolo heels)
Me: how about accessories?
N: I have seen the Dior pear earings, the double ended ones that are small on the lobe and have a larger pearl at the end, with bags its very common to have a Chanel boy bag or just the classic Chanel bag, iremember all my cousins had it, its always the Chanel, Celine and the mini Dior purses.
Its very common to see girls here with the latest bags and shoes, thats one thing I love about being a teenager, if your able to express yourself then your more than likely to do it in a big way, i'd like to thank you Neda for contrbuting to my blog and enabling me to get what i wanted to get across in a better way!
