I’m going to step back on time to a few weeks ago to when I was incredibly lucky to win an invitation to the launch of Stylist Arabia. Anyway who’s visited London might be aware of Stylist Magazine there, a free fashion magazine that’s distributed around the city weekly. Well one just launched here in The Middle East.
I noticed an ad for the launch in another magazine here not long after I arrived which asked people to submit pictures of their shoes on Instagram for a chance to win a pair of tickets for the launch. I did just that snapping a picture of my beloved Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats and I ended up winning-in fairness who can say no to those adorable kitties?
The launch was held in the uh-mazing One and Only Royal Mirage Dubai which is located on The Palm. Pulling up to the hotel I felt like I was entering into an Arabian Nights fantasy but once we got inside and headed out to the party which was nestled in between palm trees with the sparkling lights of Dubai glistening above us, I suddenly felt like I was at a Gatsby worthy soirée. The first cover star of the magazine was Christian Loubatain who was also there to celebrate the launch whom I also got to meet very briefly-he may actually be the nicest guy in fashion! I had an amazing time at the launch, it really was what made me realise that I had made the right decision in moving to the UAE.
Thanks again to the Stylist Arabia team for having me!
