This October Mall of the Emirates hosted another “World of Fashion“ – two weeks long festival in association with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia. There was a bunch of catwalk shows from high street brands, luxury boutique Etoile, ESMOD school of fashion, make-up artist Bassam Fattouh and live appearance of the superstar Nancy Ajram.
I attended live interview with legendary Italian designer Gianvito Rossi and in-store event at Harvey Nichols where his limited edition pieces were revealed.
After meeting Giuseppe Zanotti, Nicholas Kirkwood, Edgardo Osorio of Aquazzura, Paul Andrew, Alberto Moretti, Julian Hakes and Louis Leeman I noticed that famous footwear designers are not pretentious or bigheaded as one would expect, but rather humble and friendly. Meeting famous Gianvito Rossi confirmed this impression of mine.
“Femininity, modernity and elegance” are synonymous with Gianvito Rossi’s acclaimed aesthetic. Well known for impeccable craftsmanship with signature Italian glamour, he creates sculptural stilettos and embellished ankle boots that are the ultimate in stylish footwear.
