more words about the exhibition:

Dubai, UAE – The Empty Quarter Gallery opens
the exhibition season with a grand show focusing on fashion. For this the creative gallery director Elie
Domit has brought together an exquisite collection of vintage and modern prints by celebrated fashion
photographers, whose lifetime stories are inextricably interwoven with 20th century high fashion.
Their iconic images, many of which are to be seen in Dubai for the first time, are paired with the remarkable story of Parveen Shaath, a true fashionista avant la lettre from Saudi Arabia. Miss Shaath dedicated her life to the very subject of these photographs, haute couture dresses, collecting the best specimens for the inner circles of Saudi society.
A number of these dresses, by fashion house of note, such as Belville Sassoon, known to dress royalty,
Victoria Royal, and vintage labels like Paul Louis Orrier Nettie Vogues, whose supplied Princess
Diana’s enagement dress, will be on display in the gallery. The result is a museum quality exhibition offering
a rare opportunity to experience the magic of fashion face to face within the Gulf region.

One question though…why did you have to go all the way to Dubai to do that shoot? There is nothing in the photos that would necessitate a Dubai location.
