Friday 13th – unlucky for some, but certainly not for UAE design talent Fatema Al Farden, who, on one of the most superstitious days of the year, became the first Emirati designer to showcase at New York Fashion Week

Model, art director and It-girl Julia Restoin Roitfeld hosted the glamourous celebration, which was also attended by Rachel Zoe and her husband Rodger Berman, Haya Maraka, actress Lilla Crawford, model Cory Kennedy and TV personalities Ezra Williams, Stassi Schroeder and Carole Radziwill. Iconic DJ act The Misshapes kept the fashionable crowd entertained, whilst guests explored Farden's impressive second-ever collection.
