Grazia hosted its 5th annual style awards last week at the Ritz Carlton to toast the local fashion industry. Our blog of course was not nominated…BUT THEN AGAIN, why not give the little people a chance? Fashions, haves, have nots, and must haves were in full force making for delightful night, which of course ended at small after hours at mine. For the full list of winners click HERE.

ESSA Drops Its Like Its Hot

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

People, line up for fashion MAYHEM! For the first time in 17 years, homegrown international designer ESSA does the unthinkable…SALE! Check out some if his last collections shot backstage HERE. Couture dresses, bags, gowns I could roll in it for days. If you don’t attend fabulously decadent glamorous parties, don’t even bother going…because thats what this stuff is….and then some.   Anyway this 3 day extravaganza is located in the discreet art district of Al-Qouz, where no one will know you paid a dropped 90 percent price for something you will look a billion bucks in. GO or die in regret.

Essa: Backstage & Beyond

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Starving delicious fabulosity! Designer Essa tore up the catwalk with savage prints, devastatingly blinged out crystal embellishments and a ferocious play of colors that only Essa could do…an epitome of glittering Dubai! I died for every second of it. The crowd was hot, from the style kids to the establishment, everyone showed their homage to one the regions design superstars. I’m  not going to mention what most were wearing below because it was Essa, Essa, Essa!
