Dani Hourani met her husband in 2009 through a common friend. The pair tied the knot in 2013 and had their first baby, Zoe Ray, two years later. The family live in Dubai and Dana works across the fields of fashion and music, mostly through social media channels.

I manage to schedule my projects around my daughter’s timing as I do not have a 9 to 5 job. I have a nanny who is a great support when I need to work on fashion shoots or music projects. Of course my rock and greatest support is my husband who does have a 9 to 5 job in IT.
FAVOURITE FAMILY HANGOUTS
Living in Dubai it’s almost summer weather all year round so we love to spend time in our compound pool just lounging around with our daughter listening to good music. Both my husband’s and my siblings also live in Dubai with their families, so we like to spend family time with them and their children as well doing barbecues etc.
I don’t follow fashion trends necessarily although I always like to do my research about what’s out there. My style is usually quite classic but with a cutting edge, and most importantly as a new mom comfort is key. I have a growing love for kids fashion these days. Finding really cute key pieces and dressing my little one up like she were my little doll.
PARENTING SURVIVAL TIPS
What I’ve learnt is most important is finding a system at home. Especially for working moms there needs to be an organised structure in order to juggle everything at once. Accepting help from those around you goes a long way because you don’t want to lose a sense of who you were before being a mother either.
