SATURDAY: "After a 5:30am start and a crazy morning I spent the late afternoon with some of the best women in town at The Cove. Potentially the best mini stretch of sea in Dubai."

SUNDAY: "Where the magic happens! Our AW15 production is well under way. Introducing 3 of the men responsible for stitching all of the BEDOUIN items here in the UAE. We choose to work with a small team to ensure that quality of the garments and the working conditions reach the highest standard possible."

As the founder, designer and creative director of UAE-based label, Bedouin, Andraya Farrag has her hands full. She's recently launched her Autumn/Winter collection, which features a new version of the label's staple piece - the bomber jacket. "The first copy of the Bedouin AW15 look book On The Road is fresh off the press!" she explains of Wednesday's picture. "This is my favourite page featuring the Nevada Bomber Jacket with appliqué stars."

Once one collection's out, the next one is waiting to be designed, and Andraya's already working hard on 2016. To get an insight into the local fashionista and business woman's life, we gave her a camera, and asked her to take one photo per day for a week. Her passion for all things satorial is clear, with a stylish home and studio, as well as weekends at beach clubs. But it's not all glamorous... she's lucky if she gets one day off a week. With that in mind, let's see what seven days in her world looks like.
