The UAE announced a record high in COVID-19 cases on Tuesday,
with 3,243 new coronavirus cases and six deaths. However, certain
events are permitted with safety measures in place.

At the event was Iraqi it-girl Rania Fawaz, who showed up
wearing a beige knit dress and black leather purse by Alexander
McQueen. 

UAE blogger Nadya Hassan was also in attendance, wearing a
head-to-toe outfit from the British fashion label in the form of a
black minidress, pointed-toe pumps and a leather, monochromatic
bag.

Hassan took to her Instagram Stories to document the evening,
sharing a glimpse of the brand’s new collection of leather
handbags, clutches and jewelry as well as a spectacular Alexander
McQueen projection that lit up the world’s tallest building. 

She was joined at the event by Dubai-based Iraqi style blogger
Deema Al-Asadi and Saudi influencer Hala Abdullah.

Al-Asadi wore an all-black look, which consisted of a voluminous
corset worn over a T-shirt and tailored trousers. She completed the
look with black boots and a gold-trimmed bag.

For her part, Abdullah looked elegant in a long,
off-the-shoulder black gown.

Creative director Sarah Burton unveiled Alexander McQueen’s
Spring 2021 ready-to-wear collection via a fashion film entitled
“First Light†directed and shot by English filmmaker Jonathan
Glazer in East London.

The film featured male and female models walking along the banks
of the Thames on a winter’s morning wearing pieces from the new
offering. 

In her collection notes, Burton expressed a desire for
purity.

 â€œShape, silhouette and volume, the beauty of the bare bones
of clothing stripped back to its essence — a world charged with
emotion and human connection.†

The designer drew fabric from the deadstock pile to create gowns
with corset tops, long, full ballerina skirts, a biker jacket with
cocoon-shaped tulle sleeves and a ball skirt.
