Style spied: Sahar Foad from Egypt

A turbanista with a fashion-forward taste in style. Spotted by Shea Rasol.

Civil engineering student by day and blogger by night, Sahar Foad caught our eye with her signature turban and on-point musings about fashion inspirations. A native of Cairo, Sahar began her blogging journey about eight months ago, figuring it was the best platform to kickstart her dreams of pursuing a career in the fashion industry. She is building up her skills on the side with illustrations and design classes.

For visual inspiration, Sahar looks to the dramatic outfits of the Middle Ages. Can you imagine those Juliet sleeves, draping, intricate headgear, highly embellished details and luxurious jewelry? What she especially adores is the architecture and designs of old castles.

Whether life takes her to be an engineer or a designer (or both!), we wish her a fruitful journey full of passion.
