Guests including Nez Gebreel, CEO of the Dubai Design and Fashion Council; Marcela Danielova, Fashion Forward designer relations manager; and Ahmed Abdelrahman, the designer behind Thamanyah enjoyed an intimate evening of fashion and fine dining including “luxury” burgers on all-leather dining tables. For the fashion presentation, Saudi designer Haifa Fahad exclusively revealed her Grace Jones-infused Fall 2015 RTW “Dare” collection. The new line features metal definitions, accentuated layering, studded effects, and mixed fabrics. The Riyadh-based designer launched her brand in 2013 after graduating from the Art & Skills Institute in Saudi Arabia.
The evening continued as guests mingled to the sounds of soul music.
