Update: Cancel any plans you have this weekend as the dazzling Fantasy Bra is landing in-store at the Mouawad boutique in Dubai Mall on January 14 and 15, giving you the chance to get up close and personal with the catwalk creation. We'll see you there!
For the ninth year, Mouawad, a jewellery brand which started in Lebanon and currently has its Middle East headquarters in Jumeirah Lakes Towers, as well as offices in Geneva and Switzerland, designed and produced the amazing Fantasy Bra for this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. The brand has previously designed the diamond-encrusted garments for Heidi Klum, Tyra Banks and Candice Swanepoel, as well as last year’s double dazzlers worn by Adriana Lima and Alessandra Ambrosio. This year, the top honour was given to Lily Aldridge who paraded the Dhs8,080,930 million Firework Fantasy Bra down the catwalk for the first time. The bra and matching belt took more than 685 hours to be handmade, and featured 6,808 precious gems – including diamonds, blue topaz, yellow sapphires and pink quartz set in 18-karat gold - weighing in at a dazzling 1,300 carats. Now that’s what we call a showstopper. – Maddison Glendinning
