Straight from the glitzy streets of Paris, Messika Joaillerie has brought its dazzling collection of haute jewelry to impress the most extravagant Dubai fashionistas.
I was invited to host the event and my sole responsibility was making the night one to remember. And so it was. DXP Productions and their team of international entertainers – contortionists and dancers performed a Gatsby style show.The event was held at the prestigious Armani Hotel where the 200 VIP guests had a taste of Parisian glamour, music and diamonds.
I have been cherry picked by the prestigious Hermes to host their international Silk Ball in Dubai at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray. As you can imagine if the luxurious brand Hermes decides to throw a ball then it is going to be the grander, most expensive and extravagant one in the world. As the host of the event I can confess wholeheartedly that I have never experienced a better organised and more luxurious event before. Imagine a ball with the prominent socialite, most expensive gowns and gorgeous people. As well picture the evening as if it was a menage of Alice in wonderland and Beauty and the beast. It was indeed a fairy tale type of evening. It was magic by Hermes.
The day I was named and Audi reporter I screamed from happiness. First I was an ‘’Audi girl’’ and secondly I had to report live from one of the biggest fashion events in the world – Fashion Forward! For a girl who spent her last 10 years modelling this was ”the dream job”.
In their quality of main sponsor, Audi Middle East has been a major supporter of Fashion Forward event.
Fashion Forward Dubai (FFWD) is the definitive fashion platform for Dubai and the Middle East – which provides a platform and a progressive direction for fashion in the region. Key components of FFWD include: Catwalk shows and presentations by the best couture, ready-to-wear and accessories designers in the Middle East.

‘’Perfume is the most intense form of memory’’, said Guerlain. I have accepted my role as the Fragrance Foundation Arabia host with that wisdom at the back of my mind.
Our olfactory sense plays a pivotal role in our memory. A new born will know his mother’s smell forever, a lover will long for his partners’ perfume and a woman’s personality can be revealed by the fragrance she wears…Which brings me back to the Fragrance awards.
The Fragrance Foundation Arabia is an extension of the Fragrance Foundation which was established in 1949 in New York. Its main role is to celebrate and support the world’s best perfumes manufacturers.
Having been invited to award the best local and international fragrances for the Fragrance Foundation Arabia – on their 5th edition, has been a dream come true. Throughout the evening I was able to interact with perfume connoisseurs and brand owners and learn about the history of classic perfumes such as Yves Saint Laurent, Burberry or Hugo Boss.
Special thanks to Michael Cinco for designing my dress especially for this prestigious event.
Some of the events I get to host become unforgettable. At the grand launch of Femina Middle East at Music hall, not only I got the chance to speak to and about women, but I was also asked to recite and commemorate one of Maya Angelou’s poems, who recently has left us.
I had a great time interviewing the stunning, surreal and stupendous Sonam Kapoor and introduced on stage the team of power women behind Femina magazine. After such a glorious experience and learning about the magazine I wouldn’t want to miss any of their delicious articles. Keep your eyes peeled on Femina magazine.

All the way from the vibrant Italy, Max Mara has brought its classy, chic and celestial Spring Summer 2016 collection to Dubai.
As their host I was privileged to introduce the collection to their private group of VIP clients. The ambiance matched the collection theme – maritime motives and bold stripes. Hence their glamorous fashion show was held on a luxurious yacht in the heart of Dubai Marina. As we sailed away tunes of jazz, exquisite delicacies and gorgeous models were gracing the Spring Summer 2016 collection showcase.
On May 2016 Nissan Middle East had their annual conference with their international delegates, key partners and stakeholders. The event was held at the prestigious Double Tree by Hilton resort in Ras Al Khaima.
