Okhtein's New Vogue Arabia Shoot Highlights Egyptian Heritage and is Breathtaking

The newly released shoot for the luxury bag brand is a beautiful collaborative effort by a slew of Egyptian talents, and is shot at the Beit Al Suhaimy building in Cairo.

Photographer Bassam Allam and luxury bag brand Okhtein have just created pure magic for Vogue Arabia. Shooting in an Ottoman era building and featuring regional designers such as Azza Fahmy, Kojak, and Amr Saad, as well as Egyptian model Tara Emad, the Okhtein shoot manages to showcase Egyptian heritage through contemporary fashion image. No wonder this is backed by the #thisisegypt campaign and the Ministry of Tourism.

With the boom in the Egyptian fashion scene, it is nice to see that we are realising that our culture and its aesthetic is what will set our region’s industry apart from the West’s; a very appreciated divergence from our tendency to just blindly recreate western trends about two years too late.

It seems that this is just the prelude to our growing fashion industry and it is about time we see work of this standard so frequently.
