One of Buro 24/7 Middle East's favourite regional designers – Fujairah-based Madiyah Al Sharqi, was celebrated at a special VIP event in New York City on Tuesday evening. The daughter of the Ruler of Fujairah, U.A.E, HH Sheikh Hamad bin Mohammed Al Sharqi, and her incredible designs have officially landed stateside at the FiveStory boutique.
To celebrate its first ever Middle Eastern designer and Sharqi's Autumn/Winter 15 collection arrival, FiveStory and Claire Distenfeld, along with Indre Rockefeller, Anya Ziourova and Natalya Poniatowski hosted an elegant cocktail party.
Guests including Bettina Prentice, Nasiba Adilova, Zani Gugelmann and Leandra Medine, were treated to an exclusive preview of Sharqi's Spring/Summer 16 collection ahead of its debut at NYFW next month, and went home with a goody bag that featured traditional Middle Eastern tokens, including the beloved Bukhoor.
