I love a success story. And none so much as one that involves someone who I know, adore and respect. Tamara Al-Gabbani is one of the most wonderful people I have ever met. We actually met in university many a million years ago, but have kept in touch over the years and I am so proud of all her achievements, but none so much as the launch of her eponymous clothing line which launched in Dubai on May 11th at the exclusive Armani Prive.
To say that I was blown away by this collection is an understatement! Taking inspirational from Grecian goddesses, Tamara’s collection is the kind that every girl wants in her closet. The models were draped in the most stunning and decadent of fabrics, in the brightest and boldest of colours oh-s0-effortlessly. I am absolutely in love.
And the most amazing part of it all, the ENTIRE collection sold out before it was even shown! Bravo Tamara!
If you’ve been following the coverage from the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival this year, you would have seen Tamara at all the hottest events in the Cannes Social Calendar. Here are a few pictures of Tamara wearing her collection at the amfAR Gala, Fashion for Relief and Cinema for Peace.
I love a girl who can rock her own collection as amazingly as this!
There is a reason why Tamara is known as the UAE’s Sweetheart, but I’ll leave it up to you to meet her and find out! Follow her on Twitter and Facebook for up-to-date information on her brand and all her goings on.
Tami, congratulations on the collection and all your work. So proud of you! And here’s wishing you a very Happy Birthday too!! Mwah xoxo
