Classic clothes, modern style

Iman al Rabia is equally at home in the world of fashion as she is being a mother.

With six sons and five daughters aged from five to 24, the Emirati fashion designer has been juggling a successful career and family for the past 20 years.

Rather than rest on her laurels, however, Mrs Rabia, 44, will soon open two shops in the capital and is studying for an interior design diploma at the Abu Dhabi Vocational Education and Training Institute.

“I say that I like to do my best” she said. “I am so active and like to do things – not just spend my time shopping.

“I like to go shopping, but I have a business as well. It means something for me, even if sometimes I’m tired, because this is my job and I love it.”

Read the rest here. She is one hardworking lady!
