Got a festive ball to go to? These will certainly fit the bill.

Our Christmases often consist of eating too much and wearing pyjamas for three days straight.

However we might have to find a black-tie dinner to score an invite to, just so we can wear one of these.

Online retailer Net-a-Porter has this week launched a hand-picked selection of evening gowns for the Middle East—although these aren’t for your typical festive office party.

The curated 10-piece collection brings together designers such as Beirut’s Reem Acra and Elie Saab, with prices starting from Dhs13,000 (remember, these are limited-edition numbers).

Each gown was created just for the Middle Eastern campaign, with Erdem, Jason Wu, Jenny Packham, Roksanda, Marchesa and Roland Mouret also taking part.

“Each of these hand-sewn gowns has been specifically designed with our Middle Eastern woman in mind,” said Net-a-Porter’s global buying director Elizabeth von der Goltz.

“Following the success of our previous exclusive collections and Middle East summer campaign earlier this year, we know our customers in the region will love this selection of beautiful one-of-a-kind pieces.”
