While in Dubai, I was invited to attend Saks Fifth Avenue Dubai's elegant and intimate eveningwear fashion show, in the presence of renowned Singapore-born, Paris-based fashion designer, Andrew Gn. It was fun to enjoy a little glimpse of fashion week right in the heart of Dubai.
Boasting opulent fabrics and exquisite craftsmanship, the event showcased 25 eveningwear gowns in a myriad of colors, rich textures and dramatic shades from Andrew Gn’s Pre-Spring, S/S 12, and an exclusive preview of his Pre-Fall, and Fall-Winter 2012 collections. Guests were given the opportunity to pre-order dresses for Fall-Winter 12, as well as the chance for a personal one-on-one session with the designer himself.
As the show ended I went to the designer and told him that I first got to know about him 10 years ago when Villa Moda used to stock his brand, by the way I MISS VM!! :( sniff!!, and that I still remember how I instantly fell in love with his flower embroidered 50's like full skirts. He was pleasantly surprised and very friendly. hmm.. now that I think of it ... I hope he wasn't offended that I was praising his 10 years old designed skirt instead of his evening wear! Don't get me wrong, they looked glamorous. But I always had a very warm spot for that skirt. Oh well, it was a memorable evening. Thank you Saks Dubai for the invite.
