We’ve been seeing some new faces the past week in Paris, where up and coming models have been gracing the catwalks of some of the best-known designers around. But there is one that has recently caught our attention, and that is none other than Saudi Arabian model, Amira Al-Zuhair.
Born in Paris, Al-Zuhair is half French and half Saudi, and was raised in London, United Kingdom. She is currently managed by renowned mdoelring company, Elite Worldwide. Although she is fully delving into the world of fashion, Al-Zuhair has acquired her bachelor degree in Philosophy, Politics and Economics from King’s College in the UK.
However that didn’t stop her from making her print on the industry as her modeling portfolio is quite impressive with partnerships that boasts of prominent names such as Burberry, Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana, Carolina Herrera, and Tiffany & Co.
In a conversation with Arab News she says, “With each show you get a different atmosphere, mood and energy. There’s a different inspiration behind each collection, and that’s reflected in the clothes and the we way act and walk. I’m very grateful for all the opportunities that I’ve been given and to all of these designers for trusting me. It’s a big responsibility.”
One of the most recent catwalks, Amira Al Zuhair was part of is Giambattista Valli who is an Italian fashion designer that is known for his whimsical, pastel-colored creations. Other designers Al Zuhair has been walking for include Georges Hobeika and Georges Chakra, which feature different styles than the larger than life Valli creations. For Chakra, it was more of a spring night elegance while Hobeika dressed up his models in full-on dazzling looks.
The fashion scene means more than just the glitz and glamour for Al-Zuhair, as expressed what it entails for her beyond the aesthetics, “I see the work that goes into it behind the scenes, and it’s a very emotional experience. To me, fashion is an art and a form of self-expression. I’m honored to be able to present these collections and their designers’ works of art to the world.”
