To celebrate the opening of Aquazzura’s first-ever boutique in the UAE, founder and creative director Edgardo Osorio, Ricardo D’Almeida Figueiredo, Ingie Chalhoub, and her husband Patrick Chalhoub hosted a lavish dinner party in Dubai’s Park Hyatt on Tuesday. The glamorous event, which unfolded in the venue’s picturesque outdoor garden, was attended by well-heeled guests Chiara Amodeo, Rania Fawaz, and Zeynab El Helw.
The interior of the boutique, which is housed in the Dubai Mall’s newly-opened Fashion Avenue extension, is inspired by traditional Islamic architecture in a contemporary way. This is apparent in the geometric patterns on the floor and the striped floor-to-ceiling windows in the form of arches. The Italian accessories label’s signature stripes also served as inspiration for Tuesday night’s dinner, appearing on the table cloths, tiles, and napkins.
The lavish dinner comes a mere weeks after the brand’s Paris dinner at Hotel d’Evreux in Place Vendôme, toasting Vogue Arabia’s one-year anniversary and the new Aquazzura flagship. Click through the gallery ahead to see the best pictures from Tuesday’s Aquazzura Dubai boutique opening dinner party.
