Since the event was at night, we decided to take a walk around Dubai Mall, check out the shopping scene, do some window shopping (which ended with big purchases that don’t fit the suitcase!! Typical!), and locate Symphony Boutique so that later I don’t waste time walking around the mall wearing the highest heels I have ever tortured my feet in.
When I got to Symphony Boutique I thought it would be closed for the evening event’s preparations. I was surprised to find that it was open to the public and they were holding a “Meet the Designers” event. Meet the designers as in The Hills and The City star and designer Whitney Port, shoe designer Rupert Sanderson, shoe designer Camilla Skovgaard, Erin Fetherston (first photo), Project Runway's youngest winner Christian Siriano, and the face of Symphony AW10 campaign and one of America's Next Top Model’s finalists Raina Hein. Of course being the type that easily gets star struck I instantaneously went in and started snapping the pics away like a paparazzi, click click click, and started chit chatting with all of the designers. The conversations all started with the following unimpressive and so predictable statements “I came all the way to see you!” (For god’s sake!!! It’s just a 2 hours flight) And “I LOVE your designs”! (VERY original!)
Anyways, I’ll leave you now with the pics and comments…
That's Raina Hein signing her autograph on a limited edition Symphony Postcards. She is incredibly sweet and down to earth. And her skin is so smooth, I don't think she'll ever need to put on a foundation.
Glimpse of what's in store...
Super skinny long legs with super shiny long hair. Siiiigh
