Soiree to celebrate twenty years of fashion legend Umar Sayeed

Soirée will be hosting a tribute to their signature designer and
Pakistani style icon, Umar Sayeed with a VIP fashion show on Tuesday March 30th at the
Opera Gallery, DIFC from 7.30pm.
Umar Sayeed, who will attend the event in person says, “I feel greatly humbled at this
junction when Soirée and my dear friend Mariya Kassam are celebrating my 20 years in
fashion. These past two decades feel like 20 milestones I have covered in life. When I started
out, the thought never crossed my mind as I never had the luxury to count months and years; I
just always concentrated on my work and how to improve my work. Today, when I look back,
it was an uphill task to get here, but it's all a part of a journey. I have many more milestones
to cover, many more unventured territories to explore. The past 20 years feel like its just the
tip of the iceberg, just the nearest planet in the solar system...Life is way too short and there
galaxies awaiting to be explored, stars to be found glowing, oceans of creativity to be sailed
on, peaks of refinement to be scaled.”
The fashion icon has been on Pakistan’s fashion radar for the last 20 years and has managed
to enrich the fashion scene through years of extraordinary passion for style. Umar has long
been a leading name in haute couture in Pakistan and has dressed prominent women all over
the world. His romantic, crystal-encrusted evening and bridal gowns has also attracted bridesto-
be from various countries. His heavy formal creations herald the same feminine aesthetic
as his bridal ensemble, with brightly-colored chiffons, silks and pearl beading, the end result -
classically regal, yet unmistakably sexy. Silhouette, embellishments, palette, motifs, all seem
to bow in front of Umar Sayeed – perhaps that is why he is the only one who knows the secret
to creating an ever-lasting spell of beauty.
Following the fashion show, on Wednesday March 31st 2010, Umar Sayeed will launch his
SS2010 collections at Soirée boutique. The showcase includes – Umar Sayeed Couture, Umar
Sayeed Psyche and Umar Batul with coffee and cupcakes being served all day. Private
viewings are available on request.
With thanks Zuri Hotels and the Opera Gallery – the official sponsors of this event.
