What better way to mark the end of 2017 than with an extravagant party held by one of the most prestigious maisons in the jewelry industry? Continuing its tradition of annually hosting Dubai’s finest, Cartier honored its historical links with the region, in once again, breathtaking fashion.

It was a night of pure grandeur. British songstress Ellie Goulding performed her latest hits, before twin-sister act, Simi and Haze Khadra, hit the DJ decks wearing the brand’s most iconic collections. Welcoming the long list of VIP guests was Guillaume Alix, Cartier’s Regional Managing Director, who reminisced about the long-standing relationship and mutual admiration between the Cartier Maison and the forward-thinking emirate, before introducing a spectacular light and water show on the Dubai Canal. The long-told story of Jacques Cartier and his claim that “Dubai and Cartier share the same pride of having strong roots; the same pioneering spirit,” was on the lips of everyone throughout the evening.

For those who didn’t have the pleasure of attending, Savoir Flair rounds up the party in numbers. Keep scrolling to discover everything you missed, below.
