Making it in the Middle East is not easy as everyone thinks. Arabs by nature are very stubborn and it might take them a while (or forever) to fall in love with something. Which is why we’d like to give it up to CHARLES & KEITH! If you don’t know what that is, you seriously need to rethink every single life decision you’ve made that has led to this point.
Okay so, CHARLES & KEITH is Singaporean fast fashion brand that specializes in women’s footwear, bags and accessories. They’ve gathered three of the region’s top fashion bloggers for their latest Fall Winter 16’s campaign and we absolutely cannot even. When we said fashion bloggers, we didn’t just mean any fashion bloggers. We’re seriously talking about three of the most influential people when it comes to fashion in the Middle East.
