A little throwback. being named the hottest tailor by Ahlan! magazine


recognising the passion for tailoring.

It was by far the greatest opportunity being called out by Ahlan! (link found here) so early into my fashion career.

It had only been 3 months since the inception of WAEL. as a fashion label but it was clear that perseverance and my passion for dressing people was fruitful and being appreciated.

On a sunny Monday afternoon I took my first steps into the building of ITP Media Group, home to some of the leading magazines in the world such as Esquire, Cosmopolitan, Harper's Bazaar, Grazia and Ahlan!

We took a tour of the offices of Ahlan! first and then I was invited for a photo shoot at their studio. Thereafter, we sat down for a cup of coffee and had a Q&A session with the editor.

By the end of the week, the feature was published online and I received a personal email from team Ahlan! naming me as the hottest tailor in Dubai!

It was a blissful morning that will always be remembered.
