2013 is Qatar and Uk year of culture. A year to celebrate a cultural exchange. A year to understand two different fashion practices better. This collaboration will continue even next year with a lot of interesting projects.
In the mentine, this week a great fashion event was realized. On December 9th a fashion show with Emilia Wickstead and Qatari designers Fathea Al Jaber, Elham Al Ansari and Hessa Al Mannai. who recently showcased their designs to much acclaim at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum at The September Show.
They can be considered as the trailblazers and innovators of Qatar’s local fashion scene.
Around this event another event. In fact during that day and the day after fashion installations by Qatar’s amazing design talent, Wadha Al Hajri with Nicholas Kirkwood, L’Wren Scott and Stephen Jones were shown.
After the evening show, installations were moved to The Pearl and exibited in two of the most glamour stores in Doha: The Closet and The Vanity Room.
In particular, I was attracted by The Closet
where the next spring-summer collection of the amazing designer Nicholas Kirkwood was shown. And a pre sales was possible!
Around those fabulous shoes likewise fabulous dresses such as those of Marchesa, Mary Katrantzou and Marios Shwab.
All was complemented by an exhibition of Robinson Pelham, the jewels designer who collaborates with the English Royal Family.
So I felt as wonderful princess. And that happens each time you enter to The Closet. When the magic becomes realty!
