Founder Bio


Hello, My name is Sally Sarieddine.
(yes my real name is Sally). I was born in a festive month and this explains my festive spirit.
I am driven by my curious nature, and fueled by passion. When I stop, I breathe deeply and respect the diverse expressions of life and the endless opportunities that life has to offer. My inspirations come from complex thoughts and ideas that are expressed in a simple, soft and powerful way. I love to read, travel, and have experiences with extra ordinary people and nature I use my imagination to weave stories in my mind and connect dots in my head. My family, and my friends are my compass in life.


I graduated with a BA in communications arts (radio TV, Film) from the Lebanese American University, During my university years i got involved in Theatre. As I was directing and producing a play in 2004 I met a person that inspired me to meditate. (I have been meditating since). On a whim I decided to leave the job I had at the time as an assistant director in a local TV station and move to Dubai.

Being in the land of opportunities I found a Job in the satellite broadcasting industry. 11 months later the universe gave me another opportunity to work as a PR executive in an investment company. It paid well. I didn’t know what I was doing. I got fired 6 months later. Positive side of the story, I had the opportunity to go to London and do my Masters in Marketing. After that I moved back to Dubai and got a job in Advertising. Realizing that this is not what I want to be doing for the rest of my life I decided to resign and take a break. This is when I signed up for fashion design courses in Central Saint Martins in London.

Realizing my creativity I wanted to create a piece of art that embodies my personal message to the world. A Dr. Bag, Why a Dr. Bag? Because I am also an energy healer and I want to bring back healing into fashion. Fashion is an expression, and everything a person expresses ripples out to the world and has an immediate effect on the environment. So by bringing this into awareness, I want to encourage people to be mindful and express them selves responsibly, and take up their own challenge to leave a sweet piece of themselves in the world they live in. Makes sense?.
