There are few things better than getting dressed-up before an event with your best friend, but you can really ramp up the bonding experience by challenging each other to a fashion battle. For Savoir Flair’s exclusive BFF Fashion Battle video shoot, we tapped real-life besties Ayah Tabari, the founder and designer of Mochi, and Symphony brand ambassador Alia Al Sadek for a styling challenge to see how they would each create a look based around Spring/Summer 2016’s ultimate must-have: a slip dress.
Not only are they fashionados who work high-level jobs in the fashion sector, but they are also regional influencers who are well-known for their incredible sense of personal style. As they peruse the racks and dance to “Nobody Does It Better” by Michael Calfan, both Ayah and Alia prove that their off-beat sense of layering is a winning formula. In the friendliest battle ever fought, the results are even: both sides win.
