Notwithstanding a throbbing headache, I braved stepping into the Dubai Mall after work to check out the Mona Fares Show. The Dubai based designer was to show her latest spring summer collection, ‘Neon Edge’ at the ongoing Dubai Shopping Festival.
Having been on my self- imposed shopping ban, I had successfully managed to steer clear of malls for an entire fortnight (That’s a decade in shopaholic years)! But tonight, armed with imaginary ‘Sale blinders’, heels and 2 girlfriends, I hopped into the media pit for some fashion deliverance. And I wasn’t disappointed!
Neons are hot favs for spring summer 2012 and the audience paid rapt attention to the flowy, breezy outfits in hot pinks, neon greens and electrifying blues. I for one, loved the blues with neon accents and a particularly sexy backless maxi dress.
So how was Monday night at the buzzing Dubai Mall with a bigger buzz in my head and a shopping ban during the biggest sale of the year? If you ask me, I’d say “Totally worth it!” Watch out for the zingy, tangy collection by Mona Fares, ‘Neon Edge’ available in UAE this season.
