I can’t possibly start every post about being late to an event. But really, this one is ALL about that. Walking into an evening affair just minutes after the concluding time of it (mentioned on the invite) is neither ‘fashionably late’ nor ‘acceptable.’ But I braved it. I walked into Rami Al Ali’s Showroom just minutes after 8 pm. The invite said from ’4 pm–8 pm.’ What greeted me was a sincere and warm host along with his muse – Rami Al Ali with Diala Makki. For the uninitiated, (like I was) Diala Makki is a UAE TV Presenter and is the face of Rami Al Ali’s Bridal Collection 2012.
Rami Al Ali needs no introduction. Syrian by birth, he moved to Dubai in 1995 to make his mark. And he did with the brides-to-be. With clients such as Yousra, Ivana Trump, Latifa Nawal, among others, Rami Al Ali’s designs moved from bridal to evening wear, by demand.
Watch the slideshow of some of the pictures that I quickly took to show you his S/S 2012 Bridal Collection. Unfortunately, Rami Al Ali wasn’t available for interviews. Not to worry, you can see the pictures from his collection.
This post is not complete without thanking the lovely Sarah Bond, who made sure I was taken care of considering my inexcusable tardiness. Thank you Sarah! I am sure I will see you very soon…on time the next time.
