World Luxury Fashion Week has been officially opened by the master of haute couture, Jean Paul Gaultier, to an ecstatic audience at Jumeirah at Etihad Tower, Abu Dhabi.
The evening, “Haute Couture 2012 presented by BMW”, featured two collections by Jean Paul Gaultier followed by a fine jewellery show from Garrard.
Mona Ibellini, MC for World Luxury Fashion Week, charmed guests and looked stunning in an Amato Couture evening dress, accessorised with fine jewellery by Garrard.
Later today, invited guests can look forward to collections from haute couture houses, Giambattista Valli, Alexis Mabille and ‘on aura tout vu’ by Livia Stoianova & Yassen Samouilov.
The final two evenings of the four-day World Luxury Fashion Week will showcase some of the most prestigious prêt-à-porter brands, featuring, amongst others, the likes of Ermanno Scervino, Carolina Herrera NY, Nina Ricci, Hervé Léger, Paule Ka ‘Black Carpet’ Collections, and acclaimed regional designers, Walid Atallah, Amato by Furne One and DAS Collection.
The organisers of World Luxury Fashion Week have also partnered with premium bottled water brand, evian, and its limited edition bottle designed by renowned fashion designer, Diane von Furstenberg.
evian’s latest limited edition bottle by Diane von Furstenberg is available in the Middle East for a limited period, and reflects a playful celebration of life and features a nod to the designer’s iconic mantras with, “Water is Life is Love is Life is Water is…,” gracing the bottle in her distinct handwriting.
Von Furstenberg drew inspiration from her personal relationship with evian water and her own love of life.
The result is a unique design that combines evian’s commitment to purity with DVF’s youthful and optimistic philosophy.
World Luxury Fashion Week brings together some of the world’s leading high-end fashion brands over a four day invitation-only fashion week hosted at the spectacular Jumeirah at Etihad Towers from November 25th-28th 2012.
