I fell in love with the Sofitel el Gezirah Cairo and their stunning infinity pool. I seriously believe it’s one of the best and definitely most beautiful hotels in Cairo and I was very happy shooting there for Ladybirds June Issue.
This is my third shoot for Ladybirds June Issue. There was not much styling needed to this gorgeous pink beach cover-up Dress by Nillens and Beach Bag by Marsuma Designs. They complement one another and are both made in Egypt. I found some flowers during the shoot and slipped one into my hair, Voila 🙂
I’m loving all the new talented young Egyptian designers. I had already introduced to you the young Egyptian artist Nour Omar (founder of Marsuma Designs) when I was wearing her Marylin Monroe Converse shoes during Milan Fashionweek. Now the artist went one step further and is creating the most adorable bags and beach bags as well! Inspired by Van Gogh and Pop-art Marsuma Designs are 100 percent hand painted and hand made. Be sure to check out the Shoes as well, they’re amazing.
My family was just here visiting from Beirut last week and like any other tourists they were looking for pure Egyptian cotton bed sheets with high thread count. I immediately advised them to visit Nillens. Also founded by yet another young Egyptian designer. I love their designs and products ranging from Beachwear to fluffy gorgeous bed sheets 🙂
