If you like fun, fashion and fierceness and you don't think enough productions are made here in the UAE then you obviously haven't seen Arabic Youtube series, AYA, created by an all-female squad. In its latest episode the talented presenters are collaborating with Virgin Megastore in the `Comic Con Super Fan Challenge', dedicated to the Middle East Film & Comic Con that took place last March. The hosts will be challenged to create personalised logos celebrating their favourite Comic Con character relevant to their style and create a superhero character. They will be judged by Paris, one of the UAE's celebrated fashion influencers. New episodes of AYA are released on YouTube each week.
