We saw: Amalie Beljafla and Soraya Alali’s flamingo-inspired collection. It was utterly exquisite and an unbelievable achievement for this young duo’s first collection.
The vibe: It was chilled and everybody was keen to see what these two new young hot designers had created.
The guests: Dubai’s whole fashion scene turned up and other designers also came to share their support. I finally got to ink Bong Guerrero, CEO of Fashion Forward and Managing Partner of events company Brag, after having stalked him at many events with my camera.
The dress: There was an eclectic mix of neon, dramatic headpieces and men in heels. Everybody made an effort.
Best overheard statement: ‘We have been overwhelmed with the response, there’s already demand for Fashion Forward season two!’ Saira Mehar, PR manager for Brag. For Hatty’s blog and more of her art, see www.hattypedder.com.
