Name: Ahlem Manai-Platt
Issue: June 2017
Best Quote: “I’m very Parisian in my style sense, but it has become even more low-key since I moved to Venice Beach with my husband three years ago. It has a vibe that doesn’t live by brands or trends. I don’t wear tank tops or shorts, but I try to stick to nice pieces that are very subtle.”

Name: Oumayma El Boumeshouli

Name: Sofia El Arabi
Issue: March 2018
Best Quote: “In France, I dressed more classically. The weather didn’t make it easy for me to wear fancy dresses and special outfits. I always ended up throwing a coat over everything. When I moved back to Morocco, I had the luxury to wear what I wanted in terms of dresses and traditional pieces.”
