Tribal Chic in Gouna
By Nadine Chamaa
This collection was inspired by my own desire to get closer to nature , therefore showing the tribal feel, closer to earth, closer to animal, closer to our own instincts being more in touch with what’s real…it’s a mixture between being a cat and a woman…it’s feminine, and feline like a cat-woman!
Danielle is a freelance director/photographer and ex-Executive Creative Director of Leo Burnett’s Beirut office, her work has always inspired me.
Jill is a friend of mine. She was also a top model for Issey Miyake and many other top designers in the past.
We were all in El Gouna over the festive season. We were sitting around enjoying the atmosphere and just put it all together. It took two hours, on the 31st at sunset.
No make-up, no hairstylist, no shoes, no lights, no studio. It was made just as this collection was created, the best work happens using nature and real people…set in beautiful scenery with perfect sunlight and inspiring women.
