NAME: FABIDA ABUTAH
OCCUPATION: STUDENT, MODEL
WHAT INSPIRES YOU?
My Mother. She inspires me to the core of my being. All the experiences we’ve gone through inspire me every day when I wake up to crush my goals. No matter how many walls, obstacles, or naysayers attempt to get in my way, I’m
always focused and committed to achieving my dreams and I’m confident that I will!
GREATEST CREATIVE CHALLENGE?
I’ll have to go with being UNIQUE. Nowadays everything is being done or has been done before and in the Creative Industry, you need to be unique and consistent in whatever you do to remain relevant. But in everything I put my mind to, I simply put my own twist to it ‘a lil touch of Fabida’ just to make it my own.
PROCESS FROM CONCEPT TO FINISHED PRODUCT?
I’m usually inspired to come up with various ideas. Then I pitch them to my fellow creatives i.e. the photographer,
make-up artist and sometimes the stylist. Most of the time each one would add their own ideas and contributions
and we’d make a few changes to the project. We then set a unanimous date for the photo shoot and after which the
final edited photos are released to various social media platforms and websites just to showcase and sell our work.
But for some photo shoots, the clients u s u a l l y already have a concept and all I have to do is dress up, show up
and kill the show! Ha-ha.
