Fashion and etiquette have taken a hit over these past fifteen months. With most of us staying home during the coronavirus pandemic, looking and behaving stylishly hasn't been a top priority. Now, as we emerge from lockdown, style expert Haya Maraka has just the advice women need in her new book, A Lady Knows: Modes and Manners (November 9, 2021). Drawing inspiration from her global travels and a fashion heritage that she gleaned from her grandmother's atelier, Maraka offers a fresh take on cultivating personal style. In A Lady Knows, she deliciously delves into the modes and manners necessary for every lady's repertoire. And she does so in the tone of your best girlfriend, peppering handwritten notes and reminders between gorgeous line drawings and photographs of Haya as she is out and about living her best life.
HAYA MARAKA is a stylist and luxury expert, influencer, who writes on the subjects of etiquette, couture, and reviving glamour for the everyday. Although she may be in any city or country at any given time now, she is Dallas, Texas-born and was raised in Saudi Arabia before moving to Dubai at a very young age. She lives between homes in Switzerland, London, and New York City, and continues today to draw inspiration from her global travels and fashion heritage to offer a fresh take on cultivating personal style. Haya grew up in her grandmother's atelier, where she learned about Coco Chanel and the difference between fashion and style. While attending Switzerland's Brilliantmont boarding school, Haya's inherent talent for fashion was discovered by a local luxury vintage shop. Recognizing her natural eye, the shop soon put the seventeen-year-old in charge of buying and visual merchandising. (Her most prized flea-market find is a vintage trunk worth 31,000 that once belonged to Princess Yasmin, Rita Hayworth's daughter.) After completing a degree in fashion business at London's prestigious Istituto Marangoni, Haya moved to New York to pursue a career in fashion and to write on subjects that inspire women to search inside in order to choose how they want to look on the outside. In a world of instant gratification and over-exposure, today's women are struggling to understand fashion and make it their own, in a timeless, iconic way. Through her work as a stylist to elite clientele, her international travels, her heartbreaks, and her daily adventures, Haya's timely explorations in print and online define a comprehensive approach to exploring and defining the ideal modes and manners of today's modern woman.
