About the blog
Sand In The City is an independent street style photography blog. I like to observe and explore everything around me and take photographs. Inspired by similar projects around the world, I started this blog to showcase how people in Dubai express themselves through the way they dress. I had no idea the adventure that lay ahead for me. Originally I tried just to find a hobby for the long hot Dubai summer and was looking for a way to have fun.
Since the launch in 2012, Sand In The City grew and developed as a project; and after being hacked, recovered and revamped, is now a premier online resource for street fashion photography in Dubai.
Sand In The City was awarded Ultimate Style Blogger at the Cosmo Awards 2016.
Russian-born I am based in Dubai since 2010. Right now I work at Seven Media (the coolest PR and Digital agency in town), and take care of the content production for our amazing clients. I studied Media Management in Germany, where I lived for seven years.
As for fashion I love simplicity with a touch of retro, always chasing the original or vintage pieces. I also get excited about beautiful prints and amazing patterns. For me fashion has to feel authentic, interesting, fun, and inspiring.
Welcome to my blog, I hope you enjoy! X
