Last night Dubai-based designer Deborah Henning pulled out all the stops as she showcased her spring/summer 2015 collection at an exclusive event with the creme de la creme of the style industry in attendance.

Former Emirates Woman Woman of the Year nominee, Deborah Henning played host at a stunning villa on a glamorous frond on the Palm, welcoming fashion media, bloggers, local personalities and socialites to not only peruse her latest collection but to also buy the clothes hot off the rails with a generous 20 per cent discount. Soon the preview turned into an exciting shopping soiree.

The Manchester-born designer teamed up with Live Loud Girl who worked on a urban chic interior scheme for the event using products from The Bowery Company, H&M Home and D.Tales. Food by Michelin star-winning chefs from Elements Catering was served, while a specialist bar tender created exquisite cocktails. To further ensure spirits were high a live DJ meant the mood was constantly upbeat.

Did we make a purchase? Too right we did…
