Left Jeddah and moved to San Francisco for one year and then New York to do my masters. Pratt Institute graduate in M.P.S in Design Management with capstone focus on designing strategic solution for small sustainable fashion brands. During this time, I end up with ZAINA SILVER as an experiment with minimalism and kaftan from the middle east and started Callmesemsem to keep an online journal.
I had 5 years of experience in Digital Marketing with local and international fashion brands in Saudi Arabia. From social media marketing to eCommerce.
After I did my first brand collaboration in 2008 with Miss Sixty, I decided to launch Bags & Windows as a network to increase awareness of fashion blogging and the network went from 9 bloggers in 2010 to over 250 in 2013. It was an adventure that ended there but it led to great opportunities. From TEDxDirahWomen talk with King Saud University to local magazines contributions and brands collaborations.
