Things go seriously glam this issue, with opulent Middle Eastern abayas to make you gasp. Glamorous embellishment comes to showbiz, too: Motown The Musical rocks New York; Romeo & Juliet lights up cinemas in July; and P!nk’s The Truth About Love tour dazzles with high-wire feats. We’re riveted by Chrisanne’s head-swiveling dance costumes, we covet Valentino’s elegantly subversive Rockstud shoes, and the spectacular World Jewelry Facets exhibition goes on tour.
Flamboyant New Yorker Priya Kakkar brings a touch of India to her Chamak accessories, and Kuwaiti couturier, Hazar, shows her swoon-worthy wedding gowns. British Gemma Critchley talks about her vintage-inspired jewelry for Cabinet Studios, and Brazilian shirt company Dudalina’s Sonja Regina Hess de Souza shares her aspirations for her country.
The mood is extravagant. Enjoy.
