من منا يحمل جريدة بهدف قراءة كاريكاتير اليوم فقط؟ للكاريكاتير تأثير لربما أقوى من تحليل نقراءه عن موضوع معين. اُسلوب السخرية والاستهزاء المؤدب هو حقا من احد عادات مجتمعنا وعرفنا دائماً في وقت الرخاء او الشدة ان نقلب آي موضوع جدي ومهم الا موضوع فكاهي ننتسب اليه النكت المضحكة كوسيلة للترفيه والافصاح عن مشاعر حساسة.
وهذا بالضبط ما تتميز به الفنانة السعوية والرسامة جاز اسلام.
تلقت بداية تعليمها الجامعي في احد جامعات لندن المختصة بالفنون Saint Martin Lane ومن ثم التحقت بالجامعة الامريكية والتي حصلت منها على شهادة في تخصص الاعلام المرئي.
عادت الى الوطن وبالتحديد جدة حاملة شهادة في إدارة الاعمال واحلام كبيرة وامل في تغيير نظرة المجتمع فيما يخص المرأة.
ملهمة بحس الموضة والأزياء، تقوم جاز برسم شخصيات تعكس شخصيات موجودة في الواقع بهدف طرح مواضيع معينة ومحاولة معالجتها بطريقة فكاهية وجميلة أيضا تحفز على التفكير والتمعن في الوضع والحالة التي تمر بها المرأة السعودية.
بعض من رسومات جاز ذو طابع جريء جدا وتلقت الكثير من الانتقادات التي تقول انها كانت دافع أقوى لها في ان تستمر الا ان تصل منالها.
اشتهرت جاز ايضا بسلسلة كاريكاتير ظريفة لشخصية محببة الى القلب يدعى سعيد في رمضان.

Just got back from a long trip to the UK a few weeks and I’m truly missing it now.
This trip was a chance for me to show off a bit of clothes different to what I’d usually wear in Saudi and GCC in general (abaya and leggings and a tankie under). And of course, accessories look different with an outfit other than an abaya rightt?
For most of the days, I had to leave my babies indoors (yup didn’t leave their boxes inside the suitcase) because of the rain 😦
Now that I’m back, back to hunting cool fashionable stuff, I stumbled upon this cool instagram page that sells these Hermes inspired plastic pouch bag that are perfect!
They look absolutely perfect as a bag and also a great raincoat for your bags – just perfect! Their called no faux official and the handle and lock straps are made of leather in different colors to match your bag or wallet of course!
Considering getting one or two because they are really perfect for light coloured bags they may get damaged rubbing off clothes or abaya.
So, over accessorising has been a trend for the longest time and doesn’t seem to be fading away anytime soon?
I love my jewels but I feel like it’s getting overboard and losing taste – knuckle rings are cool but I always lose them! Maybe just careless I don’t know.. But ya I’m still hesitant as to purchase more knuckle rings, ear cuffs, full finger diamond or crystal encrusted sets, Arabic calligraphy jewels and accessories etc.
it’s cool yes but how to choose? So many great international and local designers it makes it so hard to pick something you end up throwing the pile you collected and just walk away. Love to stick to my essential everyday small pieces but here are my top 10 picks in no particular order:
I remember the days when the Mickey Mouse Club was the coolest thing on the block and how Disney promoted wearing jumpers with Disney’s main characters was the coolest thing ever (only within Disney land premises though) and how excited I was to see mama and papa wearing Mickey and Goofy hats and t-shirts.
Fast forward to nearly 25 years and here I am still indulging into this lifestyle that has now hit the fashion world by charm. Yes I didn’t stop wearing Mickey Mouse, Wonder Woman, etc. in the last few years but this year sets its self aside and stand in glory amongst many supporting designers, appraising fans and followings. It’s the year of pop art meets kids fiction. Disney’s idols, the empire of fast food, and even the Arab world idolized the many icons of Arabian desert cultures like the “Oud” bottle and of course not to mention brands exercising on their own heritage and lifestyle like Chanel’s no.5 chanel perfume bottle bag and now D&G announced partnered with Magnum our ice creams are now designer how fancy for our tongues!
I was always told in school that Geography was the only subject that mattered the most because it was a well rounded encompassing subjects that covered everything from science to habitat and human psychology and literature. It’s absolutely astounding to watch how the fashion world and scene as evolved into a subject matter that can be compared to Geography in it’s many benefits and should actually be considered as a subject matter to be taught in schools.
Fashion is fashion and its no longer a luxury that one lives by especially with high street fashion brands such as H&M, Top Shop, and Primark in the UK offering these trends at affordable prices. Its almost fashion like fashion is attempting to synchronize and harmonise everyone’s look at a given period of time.
So with the met gala taking place tonight, everyone’s eager to see what the stars will be wearing upon arrival on the red carpet.
As usual I’m always glued to the TV tuned in to E! Live on the red carpet wearing my judging hat anxious to jump out of my couch to snap a “live” picture of my best dressed celeb!
So here’s watch special and what’s making it all the more exciting for me. This year Charles James gets his own Met Gala for his many achievements in the history of fashion.
A little bit more on the man… He started off as a hat designer and then moved on to designing gowns which is what he was best known for. His designs extenuated a woman’s body using silks, velvety, and organdy.
His exhibition “Charles James: Beyond Fashion” will be on until August of this year.
I think I know where Mr. Posen drives his inspiration from?
