Ta Marbouta had decided to celebrate their collection with their loyal customers at none other than our boutique. Of course it was an honor and I had definitely put in a lot of work into the process - Ta Marbouta is one of my favorite brands, I love Rawan Azhar’s work and how she constantly likes to keep fashion fun, playful, and classy. The theme? Well, of course, it was patterns mania, the main concept behind the entire collection which could be described as having a hint of Yayoyi Kusama’s obsession with patterns, matched with Louis Vuitton’s refinement and love of clean, dichromatic checkers.
Of course, the event was a huge hit!
Some of the most prized of clientele and public figures attended Jo Lamode’s Ta Marbouta fest. Qatari designers such as Shoaa Alghanim and Hanadi Al Malki were there, as well as Khawla Youssef - from Mrs. His Last Name - stopped by to see what the show was about. Of course, we had Noor Al Thani, founder of Black Ires event management.
Gorgeous model Angelique was to be the object of attraction for the day. Modeling the fabulous collection, Angelique needed only the finest hair and makeup in Qatar! And the best we got: Blue Brush Hair Studio Qatar took care of getting the glamor on before the photo shoot. aThe pictures will follow up.
David Martinez used his golden-blue touch to give Angelique the best hairdo he could. (See the results after the jump!)
Alexandra Two took care of the makeup of course, she decided to go for a bit of a retro glamor sort of look, with ruby red lips and smokey black eyes.
Busy getting the glam on!
During the event, as the model was getting ready and everything was getting in place, the fashion-hungry audiencs were given the finest of treats to take care of their sweet tooth cravings.
Steaming coffee, drinks, and refreshments were served by Ladurée Paris.
Fenyal went on to serve heavenly golden cake balls and deliciously sinful cupcakes - the attendees were absolutely in love!
All we can say is: it was mouth-watering and the event was not just a feast for the eyes alone!
And now, of course, our review of some of Ta’s most tantalizing designs:
Angelique models this lovely piece with think, sleek black and white lines going down the collar and around the shoulder pads. A very modernized interpretation of a barcode, I must say.
Of course, if you’re feeling bolder there’s another choice of a similar design with much thicker, solid lines to give the abaya more rigid structure and sternness.
Ta is also playful. Plaid was also very, very in as we can see in these pieces from the collection.
The black and white plaid pattern was seen on several abayas and in several different ways - either running down the sleeves or around teh collar and down the chest.
And then it was time for the checkers, of course. One of my personal favorites, the abaya above is all about the simple yet stylish ckeckerboard pattern on the cuffs of the abaya and the neckline/shoulders.
You don’t have to have two colors if you don’t want to! Another design was this pure black abaya, whose silk texture is beautiful, it flows like melted chocolate and the tar-black of the eole outfit is stern yet glamorous and classy.
Of course the feedback from the attendees was positive and like after every event, I like to make sure that everyone had a great time. It’s always a pleasure making all my customers and clients feel happy, at home, and in a world where their love for fashion is all that matters!
By the end of the event, draws were made by Ta Marbota and Blue Brush. The lucky winners were granted five amazing head bands from Ta, and and Blue Brush gave away 7 free beauty sessions. Lucky you!
