I was invited to the launch of ecru last night, which was held at Dar Al Funoon. ecru is a new Kuwait-based Homeware brand for those who enjoy simple luxuries. I have previously posted about the brand here.
Dar Al Funoon was transformed into something very cozy and magical, the entrance was decorated with Rumi lanterns that spun with last night's lovely breeze. And the entire ambiance felt more like visiting a friend's home than an art gallery. Each corner was utilized to give a different view, as you'll notice as you scroll down. ecru's selection of homeware gives you something a little bit different to add a touch of gorgeous charm to your home, all designed on the philosophy of beauty, comfort, and function. And it included all things nice for the home and garden, think pillow cases, napkins, stationary, serving trays and plates, lanterns, carpets, wall decoration, and even lounge wear. The perfect place to stock a wonderful range of gifts that you can spoil your family and friends with!
Scroll down for highlights of the evening, including fashion of course. The ecru exhibition is open to the public from 24th until 30th April. Opening hours are from 10:00am to 8:00pm.

I spotted the lovely talent behind Kuwait based brand Sirdab 6, Ms. Souad J A Al-Sabah. She was wearing one of her designs of course, and I loved the way it swayed as she was moving around. I can't wait to see her Ramadan collection.
How pretty and refreshing are the prints on these ecru storing bags?
In one section of the exhibition, the ecru team created a glow-in-the-dark children's room
