Spanish Arab Magazine: a new meeting point between Spain and the Arab world

The Spanish Arab magazine, published from Madrid, Spain is designed to be a tool towards creating cultural and commercial opportunities through visibility.

This week, the first issue of  the “Spanish Arab Magazine” was presented in Madrid. A new means of communication, careful design and content with a purpose: to build bridges between the Arab and Spanish cultures through fashion, art, gastronomy, travel and culture. A platform to publicise the various proposals offered by brands and companies - from both worlds - in search of new global markets.

Spanish Arab magazine, published in digital and print format, and closely linked to the “Spanish Arab Fashion” event, organized by the Art & Culture Without Borders Foundation, is an outstanding global platform for networking and cultural and artistic exchange between European and Arab countries.

In the words of Soumaya Akbib, president of the Art & Culture Without Borders Foundation: “Our magazine was born with the vocation of becoming an essential, fresh and dynamic international guide for readers interested in fashion and beauty, travel, gastronomy and cultural vanguard, without forgetting the projects with a more social and human content, of which we are very proud at the foundation.”

The presentation of the publication was held at the Club Alma, in Madrid, before a select and female audience who enjoyed an "experiential breakfast" during which different Spanish brands presented their luxury proposals in fashion, beauty and gastronomy: La Melguiza ( gourmet products and saffron cosmetics), Mariela Madrid (women's shoe atelier), Ninety (handmade jewelery), Armonium Essences (essential oils with gold dust), Foreo (tecnocosmetics) and Seaskin (biocosmetics).

Supporting the event with raffle prizes were Helena Mareque (lingerie), the world renowned Escada, ArtMuria, (high mountain honey), Yolancris (high fashion and wedding); Hotel CoolRooms (Madrid) and Hotel Palacio Villapanés (Seville) and Aceite de Castillo de Canena, (AOVE premium olive oil).

Princess Beatrice of Orleans, Honorary president of the foundation; Cristina Martin Blasi, Honorary President and Executive President of the Spanish Luxury Association - Luxury Spain -, respectively, and Soumaya Akbib, editor of the publication, presented the event, which brought together prominent personalities, among whom were SAR Princess Ana María Al Senusi of Libya; Ambassadors Rabia Ben Ahmed, from Libya and Lebanon, Hala Keyrouz; members of the diplomatic corps: Loubna Rai (Moroccan Embassy), Nadia Alami (Jordanian Embassy), Amira Gamal (Egyptian Embassy), as well as Ola El Agizi (wife of the Egyptian ambassador), and Spain's top travel and lifestyle blogger María de León, the Spanish painter, Ester Moreno, among others.

About Spanish Arab Fashion:

The new publication is closely linked to "Spanish Arab Fashion", an annual event organized by the Art & Culture without Borders Foundation, of which Soumaya Akbib is president. Spanish Arab Fashion was born in 2018 and is considered one of the best platforms for networking, opening of new markets and to promote cultural and artistic exchanges between Europeans and Arabs. It has made it possible to rediscover and promote the enormous cultural wealth that Arab and Spanish societies treasure, as well as to establish international relationships of trust to create both opportunities for the exchange of cultural and commercial visibility.
