A significant part of Aqra’s strategy is building global collaborations between fashion brands and multinationals. The young strategist has shown muscles in being able to create an impactful narrative around each aspect across various industries. Finding synergies between different and incompatible industries is a puzzle that Aqra enjoys solving — implying massive-scale brand collaborations with giants such as Microsoft, Mattel, Nikon, META, Epson, BIC, Xbox, DHL, Aramex, Schwarzkopf Professional, and Etihad Airways.
