We have been busy lately working on several ventures both for the blog and in our daytime job at the UN. This may be old news to the people who follow us on Instagram, but it’s worth a mention. Gucci, for the opening of the new Kuwaiti store in AlHamra Tower, chose us to be one of the people represented in their book Icons For Icons.
The book opens with this text: “How do you define an icon? For us, icons are those who leave an indelible mark on society. They have the power to instigate change; a passion so fiery it has the potential to redefine a generation.”
Well, that’s a mouthful. Although we don’t know if we can wear that crown, we definitely did a Cher hair-flip to it. But, in reality, what they are trying to say is that they were looking for people who did something different and stuck to it, or at least that’s what we’d like to believe.
Anyway, since we really didn’t get much local recognition for founding and maintaining this blog, we are pleased and glad to take acclaim from institutions like Esquire, Puma, Gucci and now Pepsi. This is all due to the effort we put in this blog and our other projects while maintaining a day job. So, cheers to you all for being a part of this journey.Thank you all. Now, let’s get a retweet.
