Symphony, The Dubai Mall celebrated their 2nd Anniversary recently. This pioneering fashion boutique which is known for their exclusive, edited brand mix creative and philanthropic campaigns has achieved a lot in their short history.
Symphony is the first store in Dubai to host a large group of designers and celebrities including Whitney Port, Camilla Skovgaard, Christian Siriano, Erin Fetherston, Rupert Sanderson and Raina Hein for their opening event on October 7th 2010. Last year, Symphony celebrated their 1st anniversary with international style icon Anna Dello Russo, hosting a series of events including a livestream panel with Anna and a handful of regional fashion personalities. The following season, Symphony collaborated with celebrated street style photographer Tommy Ton of Jak & Jil fame and Russian entrepreneur and muse Mira Duma, for an impressive Spring/Summer 2012 campaign.
To celebrate their 2nd anniversary, Symphony is hosting a Red Carpet Exhibition which kick-started on October 7th 2012 with a private preview and in-store party. A delectable dessert bar featuring rose-themed cakes and treats by Blossom Sweets and cake pops by Sweet Stuff, complemented the Autumn/Winter 2012 creative campaign – which is a mixed-media collaboration with local artist Mariam Abbas. Tempting canapés were created by The Address hotel and the store was transformed into a romantic rose garden with help from floral extraordinaire Oliver Dolz.
A digital, social-media-friendly photo booth was on hand for guests to create lasting memories of the occasion and eight stunning red carpet gowns worn by Lady Gaga, Angelina Jolie and Reese Witherspoon (amongst others) took centre stage. As with all Symphony events, the charity element was provided via a silent auction – the AW12 campaign artist Mariam Abbas had very kindly donated an original artwork, and this will be open for bids until the exhibition closes on October 15th 2012.
The Red Carpet Exhibition is now open to all and on display at Symphony, The Dubai Mall until October 15th 2012.
The Symphony Boutique is located on the Ground Floor, Fashion Avenue at The Dubai Mall; for more information check out their website.
