Highlighting the latest fashion trends has been a little challenging at times, but the staff at Elle Oriental says its worth it.
The magazine, a Middle East edition of the French-born original Elle, launched a year ago and is now in 11 countries, including Syria, Dubai, Morocco and Lebanon.
The fashion conscious in these countries can now follow the world of haute couture on newsstands.
Maria Aziz is the deputy editor of Elle Oriental. Azziz talks more about the venture and its unique cultural challenges.
