Tala Goes Out and About
It's been a busy month for me!
It’s that time of the month again where I count down a few of my favourite events around the city in the past few weeks. Here’s what I’ve been up to…
Ahlan! Hot 100 2016
Let’s start off with the Ahlan! Hot 100 – I was so excited to be chosen for the third time! This year’s event took place at the newly opened Nikki Beach (before they even had their grand opening), and it was no small party. Ahlan! went all-out, and I loved the fact that they had a VIP lounge where they gifted the Hot 100. I wore a gorgeous dress by Zayan the Label (I’m obsessed with her new collection).
Tory Burch Opening
Tory Burch recently opened her store in City Walk 2 and I was excited to be a part of it – even more so as I DJ’d at the bash. Tory herself is all about supporting women and entrepreneurs, so I liked the fact that the event reflected that. They had Shereen Mitwalli interview two inspirational women: Chef Dalia Dogmoch and local filmmaker Nayla al Khaja. Samar Sadik was there to create illustrations of guests as they arrived at the event, too.
Erdem in Dubai
London-based designer Erdem was recently in town, so Harvey Nichols Dubai hosted an intimate brunch that I attended at Frioul that was followed by a grand event in the evening. The designer is incredibly talented and super sweet!
Taylor Morris Brunch
One of the coolest eyewear brands at the moment, Taylor Morris (which is co-designed with Made in Chelsea’s Hugo), hosted an intimate brunch at Hugo’s house on the Palm Jumeirah to launch the new collection of sunglasses now available at Harvey Nichols Dubai. I really love the matte textures and classic black mirrors.
