Blog

Welcome to my blog... a platform for all things fashion, creativity and female empowerment. 

Here at Brimah + John I have two main beliefs "No-one can dictate you, to you" and "aspire for progress not perfection".

If you follow me on social media, you'll know I've been ranting and raving about Abu Dhabi Fashion Days (ADFD) for several weeks now (that's kinda what happens when I believe in something). I've shared stories of inspiring women, and tales of kind hearts and warm smiles, now to share pics and brands that I love. These brands caught my attention, and I was able to speak to some of the owners and learn a little more about the brand. 

Funnily as a non Arab, it was interesting to hear how some brands wanted to move away from the "typical black abaya" - I always thought it was just me lol

From the outside looking in, the black abaya is a staple piece of the Arab wardrobe, so much so that I always wonder "what more can you do to make it different/unique?"... Well these women are doing more. One such designer I loved was Ghufdah! Unfortunately, I was unable to meet the owner, but I did take several pics of her stuff... they just don't do her enough justice.
