Marc by Marc Jacobs celebrated the SS13 collection with a series of Rockabilly themed retro events in Jeddah, Manama and Dubai...
And here are some photos to share with you what happened in Dubai.. It was fun catching up with my blogger friends once again, Mahryska, Ushi Sato, Lisa Strannesten and of course, Nadya Hassan who hosted the event..
Mona Fares, local artist and designer, created a piece of art inspired by the Marc by Marc Jacobs SS13 collection.
It is very masculine and at the same time, fosters elegance and sophistication.
Why is fragrance important to you?
The first time you meet someone, the perfume they wear says a lot about them and their personality. Either you can be attracted to it or you’re not.
Tell us about your experience with the shoot?
I’m so happy to be part of this advertising. The house where we are shooting is intriguing as it is an iconic place with a beautiful view in Los Angeles.
How do you like working with Joshua Kloss?
Joshua represents the perfect Davidoff man because he is very confident, masculine and strong. Working together was a lot of fun, we have this chemistry that is effective on the screen.
How was it working with Jonas Akerlund?
It was a great experience. The entire team is so professional and precise. Jonas is a very creative person; he gives very good directions of what he wants so it is really easy and fun working with him.
Paul Smith recently held an evening with artistic flair at Archives, Safa Park Dubai.
Paul Smith had invited three talented artists to immerse themselves in the Paul Smith universe for inspiration, the fruits of which were created live at the event.
Yasmin Richie, from London, exhibited her STORYLINES UNCUT installation at the event which all designs are inspired by films, UBIK, who recently showcased his work at the Pavillion, conducted an intense session of live sketching on a large blank canvas at the event while Mariam Yakan sat under a clothing line, where iconic Paul Smith items hung, and illustrated the event, as well as drew caricatures of the guests, and hung them on the lines.
The excitement heightened as guests laid eyes on the limited edition, one and only, Paul Smith’s Swifty scooter, in the hopes of being the lucky winner who gets to take it home.
