So yesterday I attended the Power puff girls fashion show at the Fashion Avenue in Dubai Mall. It was a lovely event! Enjoyed every bit of it (maybe cause' I was with my girls).
The idea to this event had been initiated by The Turner Company and Cartoon Network Arabia and they had been supported by Swarovski, Elements, Hamleys, Dubai Mall, Splash and last but not the least - Heriot Watt University.
The students of Heriot Watt University had been working on this project ever since September last year with the idea of designing t'shirts and it was taken into a whole other level this year in January with the idea of creating Power puff girls inspired looks that are street-wear and avant garde. And not to forget the event was hosted and mentored throughout by their brand ambassadors -
Timeout Dubai's DJ of the year and TV presenter - DJ BLISS and also the lovely TV and Radio presenter - Simone Heng.
Last evening I got to see lots of different kinds of designs on the runway and most of them following out the Spring/Summer 2012 trends. Everything was very "cartoony" and the looks were almost whimsical and quirky and they definitely got the NEON on!
Congratulations to all the winners last night! You all very well deserved it!
