There are many designers that regularly swing by the sandpit to say hello, but when it’s one that’s as high-profile as Erdem Moralioglu, and when it’s his first ever visit to Dubai, we get a little bit more excited than usual.
Courtesy of the wonderful folk at Harvey Nichols-Dubai – and to celebrate him creating a super-exclusive dress just for their 10th anniversary – the half-Turkish, half-British, Canadian-born, London-based designer is coming over on March 23, and customers will get the opportunity to make an appointment to meet him.
They’d be in good company, too, since he’s dressed everyone from SJP to Kate Middleton, and Diane Kruger to Kate Bosworth in his inimitable pieces – think a hefty penchant for lace, florals, delicate textures and a demi-couture feel, but all underlined with a powerful femininity.
Erdem is so powerful within the fashion industry, that in just 10 short years he’s managed to capture the hearts of a pretty definitive cross-section of strong, modern women, winning multiple awards along the way. In 2014 he won the British Fashion Awards’ Womenswear Designer of the Year Award, the year before that taking home the Red Carpet Award, and the one before that the New Establishment Award.
As such it’s no surprise, owning a piece of Erdem is a must for any fashionista. Hence our excitement then that the designer has created eight dresses (of the same design) exclusively for the region. The dresses (Dhs13,995) will go on sale in Harvey Nichols-Dubai on March 23, and we can’t imagine they’ll be sticking around for long. While the dress design is under embargo we can reveal it is midi length, sleeveless, has tiered ruffles, and is a gorgeous blue floral print.
If you don’t get a chance to buy one of the exclusive dresses, Harvey Nichols-Dubai are also carrying a pretty sweet selection of Erdem’s spring/summer 2016 collection in store, too. Ladies, we’ll see you there.
