In this Tuesday, July 14, 2014 photo, Shayma, the manager of the Sauce boutique, presents the Ramadan collection at their Jumeirah branch in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. From Cairo to Dubai, local designers create everything from special Ramadan-themed purses and kaftans to towels, candles and tablecloths.
