BurJuman Winter Fillies & Fashion
Dubai Racing Club, along with the official fashion partner BurJuman and event sponsors Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts and Contempo Events, will be once again playing host to the first in a series of three fabulous fashion events – the BurJuman Winter Fillies & Fashion.
Guests can enjoy a lavish meal and sparkling beverages, in addition to glamorous catwalk shows featuring the latest designer racewear from the leading fashion houses of Dubai, courtesy of BurJuman.
The ever popular Ahlan! Glamour Studio will be on hand, so that perfectly coiffed and made-up ladies can have their photos taken by the Ahlan! team of professional photographers.
In addition to the highly coveted Style Stakes competitions for Best Dressed Lady, Best Dressed Couple and Best Hat, there will also be FACE of the night, all decided upon by a panel of judges.
Kelly Lundberg, the award winning stylist, joins the panel once again, along with budding fashion designers Meher Mirchandani and Riddhima Whabi and Senior Group Editor of Ahlan! Magazine, Katie Heskett.
Lundberg has a world-wide client portfolio, and recent successes include styling red carpet events such as the Grammies, the Brit Awards, Dubai World Cup 2008 and a number of international and local celebrities.
As the official stylist of the event, Lundberg offers the following tips:
Judges will be looking for style, originality and appropriateness of the outfit to the races, which includes a hat or fascinator for ladies. Attention will also be given to grooming and accessories.
Mirchandani and Whabi are childhood friends hailing from India who together launched their own label, Meher & Riddhima.
Heskett, a celebrity and fashion magazine veteran, has spent more time on a red carpet and catwalk than a pair of six-inch heels will allow without very painful repercussions!
Fashionistas should be on guard and leave nothing to chance!
Prizes include gift vouchers from BurJuman and Meher & Riddhima, Divine Diva styling package, a 3-night stay at the Banyan Tree Al Areen in Bahrain, spa and dinner packages from Banyan Tree Hotels & Resorts, plus skincare and make up vouchers from FACE Stockholm and photo sessions with Cherie of Beverly Hills Studio.
