Our very own Fashion Photographer and Art Director Malak El Sawi emulates prolific designer Jude Benhalim's vision for her latest collection 'Urban Rebel'; capturing sexy, independent and powerful women dressed to kill and conquer the city in the true vision of rebellion. The stunning collection is a romanticized manifestation of our hard-knock city, borrowing inspiration from various architectural elements and monuments, down to our cracked cement streets and the sewage pipelines lacing the city's underground.
A lawyer sits next to a fashion blogger, an artist opposite a journalist, while two revolutionary feminist filmmakers share the backseat with a model and a photographer in a dingy microbus; cruising the city at night. Street lights wash across the faces of the 12 eclectic women who are making their way to a night out on the town or back home from a long, busy day at work. Though the destinations vary for the fierce femme fatales, their journey is the same, they're out to RECLAIM PUBLIC SPACE!
