“Walking around the souqs here in Dubai is just so fascinating, it’s exciting… My god the colors that there are here in Dubai, we don’t have them in New York,” Acra explains. “I am here in Dubai to really understand the culture, the future of this generation… There are a lot of designers around whether it’s fashion, jewelry, accessories. When you weave them all together there’s a base for a design world.”
