Sukar.com is an online private shopping club, providing invitation-only access to time-limited sales campaigns of fashion, lifestyle and luxury brands at discounted prices. Sukar.com isn’t an idea steaming from nowhere, there are the likes of Gilt Groupe and Rue La La internationally, but it is the first of its kind in the Middle East.   

Shopping online is a mouse click away and with email notifications on new sales, things couldn’t get any easier. Each sale will be on for approximately 72 hours and they now deliver to Egypt!

Sukar.com signed sales agreements with more than 400 brands allowing shoppers to find everything from the iPhone to Wii to Balenciaga and Gucci, all on sale. Want to buy your boyfriend a birthday or anniversary gift? Sukar.com is a good place to start searching.

Bargain shopping isn’t easy and there isn’t even a 50% chance that you will find something you want to spend on when you log in.  However, it is worth the browse because you might just end up landing on one of your greatest bargained purchases.  An important tip when bargain shopping is: don’t go for items that look seasonal and purchase items that transcend time.  Jewelry and men’s clothing are probably going to be your favorites.

Below is a how to use Sukar.com video. Enjoy!

Soucha, one of Egypt’s haute couture designers, has launched his new collection.  Imagine a dark world where gothic was the only way of life. Soucha’s new collection takes you to that world with his all black designs. From the black roses to black lace to black velvet, the midnight darkness of the collection is all-encompassing.  Models were hidden under their black veils but nonetheless, despite the diabolical air, the items separately do stand out.  Let us all admit our love for black during the fall season and maybe even all year round because of its flattering attributes.  This collection can be styled in a less morbid fashion for the un-goths around here.  So fret not.

I am impressed by the almost flawless runway. While Paris might be a dream, New York Haute Couture Fashion Week has been a reality for this designer, one of the Middle Easts’ top couturiers.  

Below are some of the best looks of the collection.
