Fashion Star returns to Dubai One to for its third and most exciting season yet. Joining head judge Reem Acra this season is top Arab model Hanaa Ben Abdesslem and fashion consultant Nadim Chammas, who joins the panel as a new judge and mentor.
Reem tells Grazia, “Being with the talent, for me, was so emotional because it brought me back to the days when I was young and alone when there was no one to talk to and no one to ask. I never would have thought in my life that I would have had this opportunity to have someone who has spent 20 years in the fashion industry – most of it in New York – giving me hints on how things work in my own studio. These are things you don’t see from the outside.”
Stay tuned for episode 10 of Fashion Star, where Grazia Editor in Chief Alison Tay makes a special appearance as a guest judge.
“Supporting the next generation of Middle Eastern designers is super-important to me and to Grazia, so when Reem asked me to be a part of Fashion Star, I didn’t hesitate. It’s so important for all of us to play a part in helping our local talent work towards making the region a force to be reckoned with on the fashion map.”
