I was recently invited out to Dubai for the release of IWC‘s newest collection for women, the Portofino Midsize. For the first time ever, IWC had arranged a women’s only event hosted by Adriana Lima and IWC CEO Georges Kern in celebration of both the release and the stunning photography by Peter Lindbergh. Unfortunately, Lindbergh was unable to attend but we had the opportunity to view his photos in the Salsali Private Museum where the event itself took place.
The event ran a little late in the beginning, with myself and another blogger being the only ones present in the beginning. We were given the opportunity to sit and chat with Adriana Lima, but we weren’t able to take photos or do an interview…basically you’ll just have to take my word for it that she was INCREDIBLY kind, down to Earth, and fun to chat with. We talked about our kids, traveling, even breastfeeding and working and fashion and the list goes on. I’m really grateful for the experience!
IWC also gave Hussein Bazaza the opportunity to showcase his couture collection, and I didn’t manage to get very many photos of it that were of quality, but I recommend checking him out here and here.
