Better Together: Dima Ayad x Nadine Kanso team up for a special collaboration

‘You… As Is'
Two regional talents have teamed up on a statement worthy collection that will eventually make it into our wardrobes this season...

When we see women supporting women, it’s a theme we love here at Buro HQ. But, what’s even better is when it happens in our own region — it’s like music to our ears.

With that being said, regional fashion designer Dima Ayad has teamed up with recognised jewellery designer and artist Nadine Kanso on a collection that features a powerful statement.

Staying faithful to the her mainstay of modern designs, Ayad’s signature white cotton t-shirt with the slogan ‘You… As Is’ has been reimagined and translated into Arabic — أنت… كما أنت — complete in Nadine’s unmistakeable calligraphy imprinted in gold and silver.

Speaking of the wording, Ayad said: “‘You… As Is’ is a message that stems from inspiring and motivating people to be content and to celebrate themselves in the moment as they are. We’re surrounded by people working towards the future and striving to be better – that is definitely worth celebrating, but I think it’s also important that we don’t miss being in the moment; being content with who we are right now.”

Dima Ayad x Nadine Kanso’s limited edition t-shirts are now available for Dhs285 at Facilité, Dubai Design District, or online at
