The UAE will witness a first of its kind event next month – the world’s highest
fashion show will be held in Atmosphere, on the 122nd floor of the Burj
Khalifa, on 14 April. The restaurant sits at a height of over 442 metres and
will play host to designs from Nabrman, a UAE-based fashion house led by Emirati
entrepreneur Hend Al Mutawa, has been turning traditional Abayas high-end since
it launched two years ago.
Al Mutawa said: “We wanted to do our own first
bespoke fashion show in a venue that symbolised our aspirations. And what could
be a better venue than the world’s tallest building Burj Khalifa, and
Atmosphere, the Guinness World Record holder for the world’s highest luxury
dining lounge from the ground floor.”
Nabrman will display its winter collection at
the Atmosphere. The collection is created with a conventional touch,
involving velvet fabric of superior quality, yet, ensuring the blend of
gracefulness within each design. The velvet fabrics utilised in the collection
comprise of velvet and even a limited edition laser-cut silky velvet imported
from the UK.
“Inspired by nature,
specifically the nature of sea, I have boldly introduced a new Abaya cut as
well as a unique design using pearls and metallic embroidery on the shoulders,
creating timeless pieces in the fashion world of Abayas,” Al Mutawa said.
