We’re very spoiled in Dubai and are used to getting mailed invitations to amazing parties on an almost daily basis (as well as organising our own..), but every now and again an extra special event takes place that gets the whole town talking.
This week it was the opening of Chanel’s Little Black Jacket exhibition in a specially constructed venue beneath the Burj Khalifa. On Thursday evening Dubai’s fashion finest dug out their Chanel (no last season please) and headed to take in the stunning selection of images before going back of house to the ‘party room’.
It was a pretty fabulous affair with a serious guest list that went heavy on the French crowd and didn’t stint on the champagne (many aching fashion heads the next day…) and was made even more spectacular with a set from Rita Ora. As she headed home, the thinking man’s Rhianna summed it all up by tweeting “Sign of a good night. Gettin wiggy with it! Great show tonight Dubai thank you. Goodnight… #dressup.”
