Valentino a hit in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, November 19, 2007
The launch event of the Abu Dhabi Fashion Week came to its climax last night (November 18) with the glorious Haute Couture Collection of the immortal Valentino.
For the last 45 years, Valentino has been a giant of the international fashion world and this, his last ever collection, showed exactly why. On the catwalk in Abu Dhabi last night, the Fashion Maestro of Rome brought all the glamour and romance that his name has become synonymous with to a glittering fashion pavilion by the shores of the Arabian Gulf.
Gowns that have graced princesses, film stars, chanteurs and the world’s most beautiful women – at their most beautiful moments – were paraded through the velveteen Arabian night before an international and regional audience of VIPs, fashion industry experts, buyers and guests.
The response was rapturous, awed silence and loud applause greeted the fabulous flowing beauty of the collection.
The exclusive “Red Party” that followed the show was a stirring tribute to this great designer and a fitting end to the Launch Event of the Abu Dhabi Fashion Week.
The inaugural Abu Dhabi Fashion Week will take place from March 17 to 21, 2008. – TradeArabia News Service
