Afternoon Tea with a Local Flavour at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort
Award-Winning Abaya Designer Iman Al Midfa to Exclusively Showcase Unique Collection from Ghizlan Fashion House
Abu Dhabi – The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, Abu Dhabi will host an exclusive showcase of abaya designs by Ghizlan Fashion House, Thursday 15 May, at the resort’s ultra-private Library.
The themed event will offer ladies the opportunity to enjoy a delectable afternoon tea, while viewing the designs of award-winning abaya designer Iman Al Midfa, and learning about the inspiration behind her pieces.
Al Midfa is the founder and creative director behind Ghizlan Fashion House, a leading luxury Emirati brand known for its unique collections of abayas and traditional wear.
“I am delighted to be able to display my designs at The St. Regis Saadiyat Island Resort, at a timeless event like The Afternoon Tea which transcends all cultural boundaries; Emirati women, much like Mrs. Astor, regularly host intimate gatherings for their closest girlfriends. It is a true pleasure to showcase Ghizlan Fashion House in such a luxurious setting,” said Al Midfa.
Originated by ‘The’ Mrs. Astor – the founder of the first St. Regis in New York to host intimate gatherings with her closest friends – a delectable afternoon tea at The St. Regis is a timeless tradition. The St Regis Saadiyat Island Resort Afternoon Tea was awarded Best Afternoon Tea at the 2013 Timeout Abu Dhabi Restaurant Awards.
