Newport International Group: IPOs back in fashion

Source: http://www.thenati onal.ae/business/i ndustry-insights/m arkets/ipos-back-i n-fashion-as-inves tors-warm-to-uae-s tocks A flurry of initial public offerings is planned for the coming months amid ripe valuations and investor appetite for UAE stocks. This month, the Bank of London & The Middle East announced an intent to list its shares on the Nasdaq Dubai in October, the bourse’s first listing in almost five years. The news was then followed by two IPO revelations this week – Just Falafel is considering a 25 per cent listing of the food chain’s shares on the Nasdaq Dubai and Damac Properties is eyeing a London share sale. The renewed confidence among UAE companies illustrates a marked change in attitude towards raising capital from equity markets. “More investors are turning to investment banks to take their companies public,” said Mohammed Ali Yasin, the managing director at National Bank of Abu Dhabi’s brokerage arm. “Valuations have become much more interesting and give room for founders to realise good value from selling their companies.” UAE shares traded at 10 times earnings about a year ago. For a company to go public, they would have to be valued at five to seven times earnings, “which is not exciting or interesting for founders of those companies”, said Mr Yasin. Today, the ratio is 12 to 13 times earnings. “That means IPOs can come to the market with 10 times earnings. It gives the founders incentive to spin off their shares.” Equity markets have rallied over the past year, as the nation’s laggard stocks have come to better reflect the UAE’s strong economic fundamentals. The Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange General Index has gained about 45 per cent this year. The Dubai Financial Market General Index has risen almost 65 per cent. There have been few new listings from UAE companies in recent years as low valuations and thin trading volumes deterred companies from going public. “Since the 2008 global financial crisis, there was no market at all for IPOs,” said Fathi Ben Grira, the chief executive at Mena Corp in Abu Dhabi. “We reached a bottom when trading values touched Dh15 million per day. How can you launch an IPO with that? You can’t sell it.” In the wider region, investors are considering reductions in their holdings of Asiacell, Iraq’s publicly listed mobile services operator, as a second telecoms share sale in the country catches their attention. The initial public offering of Zain Iraq, which the company hopes will raise “north of US$1 billion”, is expected to take place next year. Oman’s Sembcorp Salalah Power & Water Company said it would close its IPO, in which it is selling 35 per cent of the company, on Thursday. Saudi Arabia’s Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said he would hold his stake in Twitter when it goes public, which he said he expected to take place later this year or early next year.  (Sep 28, 2013 | post #1)

Barsel mode at flatters | hong kong newport international...

http://blogs.redif f.com/barkhasan/20 13/04/15/barsel-mo de-at-flatters-hon g-kong-newport-int ernational-madrid- group/ For at være stilfuld og gravid, nødt du til at omfavne din nye figur. Du er nødt til at fejre det. Men du skal også være klar over det, og ikke holde iført din regelmæssig garderobe - selvom det er en størrelse. Kardashian, der venter sit første barn med Kanye West i juli, har taget varme fra den kulørte presse og lænestol mode kritikere for sin barsel look, der synes en fortsættelse af hendes sædvanlige parade af body-hugging kjoler, gemt i bluser, komplicerede couturelike detaljer og super-high hæle. Sidst, men synes det hun har taget springet ind i Ventetøj, undertiden iført stretch-talje barsel jeans (designer, selvfølgelig) og leggings. Ærter i bælg design direktør Olivia Capone Myers siger leggings er No. 1 must-have post for en vellykket præ- og post-baby garderobe. Leggings, samt side-ruched T-shirts og kjoler, fortrinvis af stretch jersey, er de første ting at købe, når bump begynder at vise, og det er sidste dem du bærer efter mor og baby er afgjort derhjemme, Myers siger. Myers, selv otte måneder gravid, siger den nuværende bølge af celebrity mødre-til-være har reignited interesse i dette hjørne af verdens mode, som er nogle gange mere relatable for shoppere end landingsbanen. "Jessica Simpson... hun har virkelig gjort et fantastisk stykke arbejde med ser fantastisk," siger Myers. "Hun har sammenknebne sin stil, flytter fra hæle til lejligheder men stadig poleret." Hertuginden af Cambridge Kate Middleton besidder, hvad kunne være verdens mest berømte baby bump, og hun har gjort en problemfri overgang til sin lidt moderniseret udseende. Hun havde allerede "for det meste smuk, flatterende og enkle silhuetter--kjoler , jakker, hatte og monokromatiske farver," præcis hvad stil ekspert Amy Tara Koch vil foreslå. Koch er forfatter til bogen "støde det op." Andre tips fra Koch: Kimono ærmer straks oprette den boheme vibe, der fungerer godt i Ventetøj, og så gøre tunika toppe med en blousoned faldt talje. Dinglende øreringe trække øjet at hældningen af nakke og skuldre, og en chunky halskæde bæres mod en juvel hals eller lidt skovlede eller v-hals skjorte understreger bustline opad. "Du ønsker at oprette et kontaktpunkt, der vil tage opmærksomhed andre steder fra," siger Koch. Jersey stof med sin stramme-vævning strækning er god camouflage (og kun ikke for gravide). Designer Abi Ferrin siger god jersey vil strække og skrumpe med kroppen, og at vægten af stoffet glatter bump. Myers bemærker, at hvad der i barsel butikker nu afspejler bredere modetrends. "Den fejl jeg ser mest er den mentalitet, som de mener de skal holde sig væk fra striber, eller florals eller udskriver fordi de frygter dem for at være lidet flatterende, men jeg mener modsat er sandt," siger hun. En rene, skarpe nautiske stribe, for eksempel, vil bryde op bump.

Newport group international review: For three local desig...

Eugene native Allison Ditson creates hand-sewn lingerie and swimwear for her Allihalla label in the upstairs sewing quarters at Kitsch-22 in downtown Eugene. The 24-year-old designer hails from a family with seamstress/sewing experience, and her father Les taught her how to make clothing. Ditson's clothing takes up to six hours to complete, depending on detail, and starts at $125 for made-to-measure garments. (Michael Arellano/Emerald) To Renne Phillips, the body is a canvas, and the world is a runway. She believes the way we dress ourselves — the various fabrics, textures and shapes adorning our bodies — describe our personalities, attitudes and lifestyles. To her, each day is an opportunity to walk the catwalk of the world. It’s this kind of passion for fabric that fueled her to form her own clothing line, “VaVaVie.” From bedazzled bras to custom-made wedding dresses, her goal is to infuse both glamour and individuality into each of her creations as much as possible. “Each piece I design is unique,” Phillips said. “I love devoting a lot of my time on one piece, putting all of my creativity, imagination and hard work into something I design.” And her hard work shows; her designs are intricate. Her dresses, which range from cocktail to wedding, feature meticulous beading, attention to form and even more attention to detail. Her “showpiece” bras — which she said can be worn anywhere, from under sheer garments and belly dancing events to burlesque shows — are adorned with lace and beads. “You will never see glue or stitches on any of my pieces,” she said. “The attention I give my pieces is important.” See More: http://dailyemeral d.com/2013/03/07/f ashion-for-three-l ocal-designers-the -world-is-a-runway /  (Mar 11, 2013 | post #1)

Weergegeven met alleen zichzelf en haar ontwerphulpmiddele n, Williams zegt ze voelde "volledig verblind" totdat ze haar ontwerpopgave werd overhandigd. Pure adrenaline en een passie voor haar ambachtelijke gehouden haar gaan, zegt ze, en hoewel ze niet het ontstaan van de winnaar, kreeg ze "heel veel" uit de competitie.
