Few know the man behind the glowing mask! This Kuwaiti young man puts a mask on his face to hide his personality so people only focus on the clothes he wears and the style he follows. For him fashion is art and creativity that must be appreciated. In a special interview with The Glowing Mask we learned more about him and his view towards the world of art and fashion.
Who are you? And how do you usually introduce yourself?
I am an artist, an influential figure in the field of fashion and style.
I’m The Glowing Mask. In fact, it doesn’t matter who we are, but what we seek and do in order to uplift our country’s name Kuwait and put it on the world’s map of creativity.
What is your greatest passion in life?
Fashion… it is one of the most important things in my life.
Do you consider yourself a model in the fashion industry? Or you are someone who is excited and passionate about it?
I consider myself an artist who likes to express himself through fashion. Personally, I believe that the person who has the ability to match his clothes in a way that pleases him, and has the ability to understand and comprehend fashion then use it to show something beautiful, is an artist.
Why did you create the Glowing Mask personality? And what made you think that you needed it?
I wanted from people who look at my pictures to focus on my clothes and the way I assorted my style in the first place. I wanted to shed the light on my style and not on myself, since fashion is a way to introduce ourselves and our personalities to others without the need to speak. I received the mask as a gift then decided to appear in a new concept to show what I choose and wear, and this was the start.
How would you describe your own style?

What are the most important principles of a man’s elegance in your opinion?
To be confident, confidence is one of the most important factors of elegance.

What do you think of the elegance and style of the Kuwaiti men?
I think they are really classy, young Kuwaiti men focus on each detail in their outfits and their outer shape. They seek excellence and uniqueness. But despite all that, some do not respect others’ choices.
