Style Talk | Sausan Al-Kadi

Meet Sausan Al-Kadi, a  young fashion designer/stylist/ blogger and a true fashionista! When I first sat with her I was a bit worried of how the interview would go since she seemed to be quite the shy type at the beginning but as we progressed and started talking I've realized that she was a real genuine individual with an ambitious personality which has normally helped her dream of becoming a celebrity stylist and a middle eastern trendsetter. Despite her young age Sausan achieved some of her goals already but yet she still has much more ahead for her and we wish her all the best " we got your back girl lol". It was a fresh, absolute joyful and energizing interview-photoshoot, we had such a wonderful time, hope you guys enjoy this interview as much as we did...

Name: Sausan Al-Kadi
Nationality: Saudi 
Occupation: Fashion designer, blogger

How and when did you get interested in fashion? 
Ever since I got my 1st barbie, it was love from the first sight, by the time I was 8 years old I had already collected around 200 Barbies. It was all about waking up early every morning dressing them, styling them and polishing them up. I have also started shopping and choosing my everyday outfits ever since I started talking. I was such a rebel and wanted to do everything the way I wanted to, I'm still the same rebel I was 20 years ago.

Feminine,Hipster,Vintage, Edgy & Daring

We know you are a fashion designer, tell us more about your brand, your muses, and how did you get started in this field?
Gossip Girl really made an impact in the fashion world, for me I wanted all the trends I saw in the show but having limited access to the brands in Saudi, I decided to start making some of the trends I saw. Who didn't fall over Blair's headbands back in time?  It all started there.
