**********Grazia Style Awards 2011**********

The Grazia Style Awards were held on Wednesday, May 4th at The Ritz Carlton Hotel in DIFC. Elaborately embellished abayas, bold printed silks, draped gowns and a few sparkling saris were spotted amongst the crowd of Dubai’s most fashionable.  The event was hosted by famed British designer Henry Holland, and co-hosted by Dubai based stylist, socialite  and PR director, Rosemin Manji.

I attended the event in a self-designed dress from my own clothing label, (soon to be launched!) and bumped into good friend Sarah Aziza.
