Designer-24 caught up with the effortlessly stylish instagrammer, Fatima Mackovic Makhlouf, who is a mum of three little girls and General Manager Middle East/ Global Sales Operations Manager at Anritsu, and here’s what she had to say:
How do you incorporate style into your day job as a General Manager Middle East/ Global Sales Operations Manager ?
I like to be comfortable and stylish. I do not believe that a woman should dress like a man to be taken seriously, at the same time it has to be business appropriate.
Skirt & Top, ALEXANDER MCQUEEN
I like to be comfortable and stylish.
Who are your style icons?
Coco Chanel, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy. So classic I know.
What fashion advice can you give to other busy mothers?
My style changed after having my kids and I love it. I prefer to be comfortable. I wear flats in case I have to chase them, and usually I choose fabrics that don’t wrinkle in case I need to carry one of them. Invest in cool sneakers that you can match with dresses and skirts.
What local fashion designers are your current favorites?
I love OTT Dubai, it’s different and edgy and eye catching pieces. One of my favorites is also Adriana Iglesias her prints are so colorful and feminine. She represents a contemporary woman… I love that!
What is the one make-up item that you can’t leave home without?
My Lipstick. It’s also the only item I carry with me.
Invest in cool sneakers that you can match with dresses and skirts.
Dress, GRETA CONSTANTINE
Bags or Shoes; what do you splurge on more?
Both! I am incurable according to my husband.
