What they said…
@its_noory: “The Tory Burch event was honestly the best event I’ve been to in Doha so far, I loved meeting Anna and great people and was such an amazing atmosphere, can’t wait for more upcoming events with Tory Burch”
Sheikha Raya Al Khalifa, @rayaalkhalifa: “Quite a special experience using fashion as a platform for a cross cultural exchange celebrating the beautiful elements of our aesthetic and that of Tory Burch. It’s more than the clothing, it’s a lifestyle… And a well travelled one at that!”
Designer Wadha Al Hajri, @wadha_alhajri: “I would like to congratulate you on organising today’s event, you can’t imagine all the great buzz you’ve created in Doha!”
Anum Bashir, @desertmannequin: “Doha’s fashion scene is in its infancy and we’re growing everyday. So it’s always great to have women as recognised as ADR visit and engage our local fashion loving women to only help perpetuate an industry we’re all working hard to help grow. The event was incredible and truly a success in the sheer number of women who came out not only to support the Tory Burch brand but also meet an icon we have been loving on Instagram for so long”
