When an entire region has waited so long for its Vogue voice to speak, and then it finally does… there’s a pause. A moment in time when the cultural compass and zeitgeist starts to shake and change direction. Vogue Arabia has launched its first edition––the March issue—today. It’s a landmark moment in time, when the Middle East’s premium fashion environment becomes a central conversation. One of the catalysts of this unfolding dialogue is the first cover and its cover girl, Gigi Hadid. Certain readers have gone so far as to reimagine the cover for themselves, sharing their artwork via social media.

“The cover is wow. Once I saw it I instantly got this rush of inspiration. I’ve always been obsessed with Vogue and so proud we finally got our own Vogue Arabia, I literally got goosebumps of happiness,” Abrar Zenkawi tells Vogue Arabia.
