Metallics & Neons Featuring BCBGMAXAZRIA’s SS13 Collection.

This shoot was a collaboration between so many creative individuals that we at Arabbella blog had a great pleasure to meet and get to know up close.
The story began when we met Ali Albana back in November 2013 at Al Riwaq’s Market 338. after our short meeting and introduction we decided to meet up after our winter break “which lasted for 14 days” and plan a photoshoot together. 2 days before our arrival home we have received a Twitter notification from Ali asking if we’re home yet! and that he cannot wait for us to get back and start planing this. We got back. Days of meeting, shopping and planning has passed by and there we have it Friday, March 22nd 2013! The photoshoot day has finally arrived.

 Friday March . 22 . 2013

The team has arrived to the Kempinski Hotel’s lobby and everyone started to do their own thing, Stylist (and shoot director then) Muneera Bubshait started organizing looks & complementing accessories, whilst blogger Ali Albana from The Sartori Ali accompanied by fashion assistant Orayb Bubshait ran between the hotel and BCBG retail store to get the clothes steamed. Makeup Artist Alanoud Alsubait started prepping model Huda at the spa. At the hotel’s lobby photographer Abduljalil Al-Nasser assembled his equipment and studied the place.
The actual games began once the first look was completed (hair, makeup, heels and clothes) at 12:30 pm and we started shooting look after look nonstop, having us wrap it up at 5:30 pm. By that time everyone was exhausted but super excited and could not wait till this is published.


Arabbella blog team would like thank everyone who has been a part of this remarkable journey!
