It’s been ten years since Saudi designer Mohammed Ashi opened the doors of his luxury fashion house in Beirut. To mark the occasion, a three-day fashion show was held in the heart of the desert at the Qasr Al Sarab Anantara Desert Resort in Abu Dhabi from 17th to 19th September.

Amongst a host of VVIP guests, models donned ensembles from both Ashi’s Fall 2017 Couture and Spring 2018 Ready-to-Wear collections, with their bold silhouettes offset by dazzling jewels from the Maison Chaumet.

The French jewellery house showcased more than 40 pieces at the event from its three Universes: Joséphine, Liens and Jardins. A standout diamond set was the Joséphine Aigrette Imperiale high jewellery suite, which was released earlier this summer from their Parisian workshop and pays homage to Chaumet’s longstanding muse, the Empress Joséphine de Beauharnais.

The other collections also draw on the Maison’s 237-year old history, with the ribbons of the Liens jewels and the naturalistic themes of the Jardin pieces continuing signature motifs used throughout Chaumet’s historical designs.
