When hello! arrives to Nadine’s home, also in Jumeirah close to the store, it’s apparent that this is a woman with a breathtaking wardrobe, not to mention shoe collection. During our shoot she swapped Manolo’s for Miu Mius effortlessly, after her softly spoken and heartfelt welcome into her home – feeding the team croissants and making the best coffee in town thanks to a brand new cappuccino maker. After an impressive start, hello! sat down with the mother-of-two to discover Nadine’s secrets to being so chic…

O’De Rose is home to a selection of rare and stylish finds from all over the region, how did you start the store? I am passionate about art and design and have always been an avid collector of Middle Eastern paintings and sculptures, a passion that grew with my travels over the years and was enriched during my time in New York, where I lived for some time. The O’De Rose concept was brought to life when I moved to Dubai in 2008 – to introduce a unique shopping experience to the city and engages the

senses of our customers that I prefer to call our ‘guests’. We offer an oasis away from the malls that with handmade and one-of-a-kind products focusing on Arabic heritage with a modern twist. Where and how do you source your product? Nothing is contrived. We do not sit and say, “Ok, today we are going to make an order”. We mainly source our products from our travels, and also from local and regional designers whose items fit with the concept of O’De Rose. I need to “fall in love” with the product before we put it in the store, or of course

my home. Every product in O’De Rose has a story, which I am very sensitive to. Do you have a favourite memory related to the store? I suppose it’s not necessarily a memory, more an accomplishment, but I am extremely proud of the fact that we have remained true to that spirit throughout all we do – from what we stock, to the designers we work with and the events we hold. Part of this is our mission to give back to the community.

invariably the words ‘O’De Rose’ crop up. Located on Al Wasl Road in the Jumeriah district of Dubai, O’De Rose is a standalone villa transformed into a unique, beautiful space and treasure trove of a store, proposing a mission to ‘give back to humanity by supporting disadvantaged artisans’ – acting as a marketplace for their products. From fashion to interiors to

lifestyle – it’s the kind of place one can get lost in for hours, simply admiring. It’s a concept devised by three cousins, namely Nadine Kassem Khoury, who has a passion and “love for design and art”, and moved from New York to Dubai, bringing her interests and experiences with her. Nadine was joined by Dania and Mimi from Beirut and London respectively – fusing their combined interests to create O’De Rose, and “looking at life through rose-tinted glasses”.

flash of fake ID, some spurious claims about being a journalist from the NME or Melody Maker, and he would breeze past the notoriously stringent doormen. Venues like the Loft, Paradise Garage and Studio 54 became blueprints for every nightclub that followed them. In the early 1980s, Oakenfold visited them all – while still underage. Intoxicated by all Ibiza had to offer in the summer of 1987, Oakenfold returned home to the UK to lay the foundations of acid house and the second summer of love. In attempting to recreate the Balearic atmosphere of a place like Amnesia, his London club nights went on to change the course of club culture forever. In the constellation of the 1990s dance boom, he was arguably the most visible of all the superstar DJs – tour DJ for U2, the first DJ to play the main stage at Glastonbury, resident DJ at Liverpool superclub Cream. His career reads like the history of dance music. But Oakenfold is not one for trading on past glories. “I’m all about being in the present and looking towards the future,” he says, speaking at the LA office of his record label Perfecto. “I’m not one of those people who thinks about the past. I don’t sit there and reminisce, going: ‘Ah, man, I wish we were all using vinyl.’ Not at all. What’s the point in doing that? You move with change and you embrace it and you get on with it. And that’s the way it is now.”

usually the model. And you see that with the likes of Avicii and people like that.” At the turn of the millennium, Oakenfold turned his attention to America – touring the States extensively and playing the electronic festival circuit. He grew bored, he says, of the trance sound that was becoming popular in Europe, and took a step back from DJing. He moved to LA, where he has lived for the past decade, to concentrate on making music for movies – most notably 2001’s Swordfish. He ultimately started a residency in Las Vegas so he could “film in the week and then DJ at the weekend.” During his decade in the States, he’s seen dance music take off with the rise of what the Americans like to call ‘EDM’ – electronic dance music. “They’re finally embracing electronic music. That’s the big change: they’ve woken up and smelt the roses. It’s becoming mainstream in a big way, and that is going to be key to its development over here, to support and encourage the local acts. As yet, it’s been dominated by Europe, but we’ll see where it goes.” Oakenfold draws comparisons between the burgeoning dance cultures in the US and the UAE. Here, too, he envisages a rise in home-grown talent – DJs, producers and record labels – which will eventually support an underground scene to complement the more mainstream elements. How do they stand out from the crowd? Simple, he says: “Make better tunes. Bring something new to the table.”

“DJING WAS ORIGINALLY AN ART – AND THAT SIDE OF IT IS GONE. TECHNOLOGY HAS MADE IT SO EASY”

The change he’s referring to is all encompassing. Since Oakenfold began his musical career, spinning soul in a Covent Garden wine bar as a teenager, the equipment used to play and make music has changed almost beyond recognition. While technology has made many of his old skills obsolete, Oakenfold insists there are certain aspects that remain unchanged. “You lose the art of DJing,” he says. “DJing was originally an art – and that side of it is gone. But you’ve still got to move a crowd, you’ve still got to connect with them, you’ve still got to find the music, choose the music, play the music. You’ve got to take that into account. But the actual art of DJing is gone, because technology has made it so easy.” One of the side-effects of DJs being able to plug in and play, circumventing years of training their ears and perfecting beatmatching, is that they must now produce their own music to be successful. This is nothing new to Oakenfold, who is known as much for his work in the studio as for his DJ sets – having released two successful studio albums and produced artists as diverse as the Happy Mondays and Madonna. “Where electronic producers used to make music for other DJs, they aren’t making the money now, and they also want to be the DJ and want the fame that comes with it. They’re both. It’s not the DJs being producers; it’s the producers being DJs. That’s how it’s starting, now. That’s
