I’m Milli Midwood and I started Design & Conquer in 2013 during my final year of university as a means of having a personal and creative outlet where I could jot all my ideas down. Having lived in Dubai as British expat for 25 years, the blog quickly became about life in dessert, covering everything from new restaurants I’m loving to my favourite modestwear outfits.
I honed my writing and editorial skills at a number of internships, including OK! Middle East, before nabbing a job at internationally-recongised publication Grazia Middle East, where I worked for a year before trying my hand at e-commerce and jumping ship to The Luxury Closet for a couple of years. The publishing world called me back, and now I freelance as a digital editor for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia whilst working on Design & Conquer in any spare moment I get!
My blog has been nominated for a handful of awards and I’ve been fortunate to travel the world and work with some of the leading fashion and lifestyle brands in the business. Make sure you hit that ‘follow’ button and join our journey around Dubai and beyond.
