The world’s first ‘Vertical Catwalk’ scales the Earth’s tallest building in Dubai

Giving whole new meaning to the phrase 'walk this way', an impressive show saw six acrobats drape the side of the of the Armani Pavilion at the Burj Khalifa last night – displaying the national colours of the United Arab Emirates. 

Leaving the literal acrobatics to the professionals, models walked a horizontal runway on the ground. The show served to promote the regional style store Etoile La Boutique, owned by Ingie Chalhoub.

Around forty different designer labels were highlighted, namely recent retail collections by Christian Dior, who coincidentally played host to its own, and quite different, standout show on the same day.
