In similar news, Deena Aljuhani is exiting Vogue Arabia after just two issues with the magazine. The magazine was created last year to focus on Arab women. Aljuhani had said of the magazine to the New York Times "This Vogue is very overdue. The Arabs deserve their Vogue, and they’ve deserved it for a long, long time. The Vogue Arabia woman is one who celebrates her tradition but also considers herself a highly educated global citizen. Don’t forget that we understand luxury almost better than anyone else on earth. Middle Eastern women have been serious couture clients since the late 1960s. We’ve been around long before the Russians and the Chinese ever came into the picture.
