On March 26, 2019, hosted a glittering dinner in celebration of the grand opening of its flagship store. The dinner was attended by guest designers LA-based Yves Spinelli of Spinelli Kilcollin, and NY-based Eva Zuckerman of Eva Fehren.
Both designers had flown to Kuwait to host a trunk show at Aubade’s flagship store opening the following day, making it the first visit to the Middle East by both designers.
The dinner was situated in a beautiful garden setting at a private residence, and consisted of glass-like tent structures that were designed to symbolize jewel boxes. Designed and implemented by the ever talented Bibi Hayat, the event was by invitation only to Aubade’s top clients and included a small display showcasing the best selling styles from each designer.
Bibi Hayat used the designs of both guest designers to seek inspiration for the dinner’s color palette and theme. The setting consisted of modern monochromatic touches, with black and white furniture and a table setting inspired by Eva’s abstract art work.
The dinner itself consisted of a set menu catered by Fauchon, which offered guests such dishes as Buratta cheese with fresh figs, roasted seabass and stuffed Portobello mushroom. The night also offered guests a unique performance of live music, as well as a chance to mingle and customize pieces with Aubade’s guest designers.
