While no industry is immune to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic, each one owes the community something. For the world of fashion, this means redirecting factories to manufacture protective equipment, donating to charitable organizations and hospitals, informing the public as well as acting as an escape for when they need it the most. It is also important to not forget the creatives at the core of our cultural ecosystem as we look to its future free of Covid-19. In order to champion these efforts in our own way while aiming to offer a glimpse of much-needed positivity at this time, Vogue Arabia is launching a new series for its readers, ‘Manuel Arnaut In Conversation With…’
Expect insightful as well as entertaining conversations to lift you up every week as Vogue Arabia Editor-in-Chief Manuel Arnaut speaks to regional and international industry professionals from the fields of arts, fashion, and entertainment who have a lot in common with Vogue‘s DNA and continue to inspire us. Interviewed by the editor himself, these individuals were invited to be a part of the series due to their remarkable contributions to the creative industry and the Middle East’s social landscape. “With this new series, we hope to start hopeful and inspiring conversations about fashion and culture at this moment when they are mainly bleak,” says Arnaut. For the first episode of the series launching on Monday, April 20 at 6pm, the editor will sit down for a conversation with HE Noura AlKaabi, UAE Minister of Culture and Knowledge Development.
Since this series would be incomplete without the participation of our readers, we would love to answer your questions on the present and future of the fashion industry. Send us your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to have them answered by Vogue Arabia Editor-in-Chief Manuel Arnaut and the guest judge.
Premiering on Vogue Arabia’s social media every week, ‘Manuel Arnaut In Conversation With…’ forms part of our ongoing #StayHome campaign through which we not only encourage safe practices but also aim to inform and entertain our readers while they do the right thing and stay home.
