While we working professionals endlessly toil away all year round, it’s easy to forget about students. Their year is coming to an end and at Virginia Commonwealth University Qatar (VCUQatar) the graduates have set up a showcase to display and show off all their hard work. Never one to turn down an opportunity to look at art, I went along to Qatar Foundation to have a look at the artists’ work.

First some fashion, inspired by the abiya.
