Last Friday, on the 28th of February, I attended the annual fashion show and Gala dinner of Amal Azhari, the famous designer of the uniquely designed and embellished, long or short, see-through and silky Kaftan dresses.
The event launched this Spring &Summer’s “Wind collection” at the Warehouse and Loft building, in Jisr el Wati. The huge place was lavishly decorated with some paintings and other pieces of art that exhibited during the event. The dinner was a sit-down buffet, catered by the reputed and tasteful Cat & Mouth; they had created the menu and the decor to fit with the main idea of the collection, the Lebanese typical inspired dress. You guessed it, it was Lebanese food. Among the attendees were Roula Kehdi, co-host at “Min El Ekher” TV show and Toni Breiss, Paris-based luxury events and wedding planner. After lusting over my favorites from the collection, I left like all attendees with a gift box, and inside of it an Amal Azhari designed scarf. Believe me or not I’ll be wearing it a lot this summer!
Between the attendees, the decor, and the atmosphere, I can definitely say that I enjoyed myself at this great evening! I am very enthusiastically looking forward to next year’s event!
Oh and I almost forgot to mention: I wore a crazy monster T-shirt from Topshop, Zara leather legging, Theory leather jacket, Maison Martin Margiela for H&M transparent heels, and, the best for last, the Saint Laurent Paris Betty Bag in black suede. About the hair, I asked for the hairdresser to make me a plaited Mohawk on top and to leave the rest of my hair to fall on the sides.
