On Saturday night, sixteen guests gathered near an old fort in Al Ain, under garlands of jasmine for the Dinner Club by No.57 x Noor Fares private dinner. The tablescape, which was an ode to Fares’ latest jewelry collection ‘Krystallos’, featured details such as rock crystals and cosmo-inspired tableware. “I wanted to create a cosmic picnic table with crystals and good vibes”, Dinner Club co-founder Alamira Noor Bani Hashim tells Savoir Flair of her inspiration for the setup, which juxtaposed an old fort against futuristic crystals. “I wanted a more informal feel for this dinner, so we had our guests sit on the floor, with flowers strung above them.”
Guests, which included Fatima Ghobash, Dana Hourani, Carla DiBello, and Lina Mustafa, dined on a vegetarian meal prepared by Chef Gavin of the No.FiftySeven Boutique Café, as well as went home with Fares’ ‘Fly Me to the Moon’ earrings in either malachite or mother of pearl, as well as a mini crystal ball and crystal essence.
