After much anticipation, Dior finally landed in Dubai, bringing its Spring 2019 Couture collection to the region and paying its first visit to the city – ever. As expected, Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri delivered endless glamour of the theatrical variety with her circus-themed #DiorDreamParade collection. And for the hottest ticket in town, it was only natural that fashion’s elite would show up and show out in their finest Dior looks. Luckily, photographer and frequent Savoir Flair collaborator Patrick Sawaya was there to capture the magic.
Donning Dior’s feminine embroidered gowns and diaphanous silhouettes – accessorized with the beloved ‘Saddle’ bag, of course – the show’s attendees lit up the night with stylish joie de vivre. Within the “It” crowd that gathered under the striped tent, we spotted many familiar faces. Karen Wazen and Lana El Sahely looked ethereal in gowns that can only be described as sartorial masterpieces, while Lara Scandar illustrated how to do mesh the Dior way. Elegant, sophisticated, and a touch playful, this was undoubtedly the place to see and be seen in Dubai this season. Take a glance at some of Dior’s best-dressed guests in the gallery, below.
