What's the deal with Yousif Abdulsaid??

When you think of fashion in Kuwait, its hard not to mention this guy.

Few years ago I started following @itsose on twitter. one of the interesting people to follow 

He is a local (Kuwait) fashion designer and founder of his own brand O by Ose, he is also a stylist and worked at Marie Claire Kuwait magazine. He rose through the ranks pretty quickly which, to me, means he was driven, ambitious and talented enough to rise from assistant to Art director.
Strangely enough, I don't see him twit about his work at Marie Claire anymore, no do I see any mention by the magazine about him. Put 2 and 2 together it's obvious he has left them.
Question is why? A talented and obviously visionary young man being let go or rather he decided to leave?

Anyway, there's always 2 sides of a story. But I'm largely interested in where he is and what he is up to?

So Yousif, if you see this,please put my curiosity to rest.


  1. I'm really proud of this Kuwaiti guy , he's 22 y/o and mashallah he did great job , Osé u r the best fashion designer ever

  2. And btw I noticed that he have a secret project or kinda like that and he own magazine cuz he is already resigned from Marie Claire

    1. Thank you Abdullah for that info!
      Will keep myself update...will surely post something on it soon.

  3. Yousif resigned from Marie Claire because he got a better offer and a better opportunity. Besides, Marie Claire fell apart after he left, you can not assume that he was being let go. If you really claim that you are following him, check his instagram and twitter, his sneak peeks obviously show that he is up to something major and mind blowing that will change the history of fashion and media in Kuwait


    1. Thank you N for your very insightful comment. I will check his pages more often. I will update this post.I also heard he's about to change the face of fashion n print media in Kuwait but I wasn't sure how true it is. He is very creative so I would not expect anything different.
      Thank you once again.
