Why We Think Farah Hourani Is The Next Big Thing In Arab Fashion
Last night’s Fashion Star finale left us brimming with pride at Jordan’s contestant Farah Hourani. The young fashion designer that captured the hearts of the region and the imagination of many with her huge creative potential.
Yes we think Farah is awesome because she is Jordanian, but from a more pragmatic point of view, we see her as the next big thing in Arab fashion for some concrete reasons.
1|| Her Positivity
Other than her creative talent Farah captured our attention with her positive attitude to the world. Being on regional television is no easy feat and people respond to it differently. Farah’s modest yet impressive approach was a perfect representation of what we are, as Jordanians, really down to earth, great folk.
2|| Her Forward-Thinking Outlook On Fashion
Farah’s approach to fashion is future filled, a surefire way to grow. Creatives in general have a tendency to spend a lot of time finding themselves, but once they have, they stick to it. This can paralyze their creative growth because change is a constant in fashion. Hoping to incorporate fashion technology into her work, 3D printing and new materials is a clear indication of Farah’s flexibility and ability to grow.
3|| She Is Still Learning About Herself
For a young person Farah certainly has her head screwed on right. In her many conversations we hear her talk about a quest to understand herself better, this makes her constantly open to change and improvements. Discussing her experiences on and off the show, she looks at herself almost as an observer, a valuable tool for self improvement!
4|| Farah Keeps Calm and Keeps Going
Three dresses in two days is a great accomplishment for any designer. Add to that the element of reality television and a worthy competition as the pressure piles on. Farah’s finished pieces, bursting with creativity prove that this woman can do some serious work under pressure.
