Press Release for Woman Boutique Show:

The women of the UAE are playing an increasing role in the economic and financial sectors of the country. Another step forward in providing encouragement and opportunity to them is the launch of the region’s first women-centric event - the Woman Boutique Show, to be held from the 14th to 16th of May 2009.

The event presents an avenue for individuals of different ages, nationalities and economic backgrounds from all over the globe to meet, share their talent and discuss business opportunities. Established as well as aspiring fashion and jewellery designers, artists, entrepreneurs and lifestyle experts of local and international repute will exhibit their skills and network.

“145 exhibitors of various nationalities have already confirmed their participation in the event of which 95% are women, the showcasing products will be exclusively women centric”- Organisers pointed out

The Woman Boutique Show is being organised by Red Orange events, based in Dubai, who specialise in concept-events and marketing services. Meghna Kothari, heading the Red Orange team, says, “The inspiration behind the event was simple - we wanted to provide a platform for people who provide solely women-focused products and services to come together and exhibit their talents to develop them into business enterprises.”

Iconic personalities like the internationally acclaimed fashion designer Walid Atallah, renowned beautician Shahnaz Hussain, and established local make-up artist and TV personality Joelle Mardinian, among many other international designers are participating in the event, providing women the opportunity to interact with their role models and learn from their success stories.

“This region has not seen an event dedicated entirely to women’s products and services on this scale before. This initiative, to create a platform for the networking of like-minded individuals, is therefore a first for Dubai, if not the region. I am certain that the ideas and collaborations generated here will do justice to the effort behind it and encourage us to make this an annual event,” says Meghna on the future of the Woman Boutique Show.

The Woman Boutique Show 2009 holds promise as a unique concept event designed to encourage talented and enterprising men and women from around the world to utilise the potential of Dubai as a business hub.

Press Release

Joelle Mardinian brings her MBC show ‘Joelle’ to The Bride Show Dubai

Dubai, UAE, 16 March, 2009: Women in Dubai are counting down for the start of The Bride Show Dubai, since it has emerged that one of the region’s best loved TV presenters is taking part in the four day bridal extravaganza.

Joelle Mardinian, host of MBC’s ‘Be Saraha Kteer Ahla’ and ‘Joelle’, is one of the world’s most respected professional make up artists and will be on hand throughout The Bride Show Dubai to offer her tips and guidance to visitors at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.

Not only will visitors and fans have the opportunity to meet Joelle, but they can also bag exclusive, front row seats watching her ability to reinvent a face while enhancing natural beauty when she performs make-over sessions on stage.

Furthermore, a replica of her recently opened Jumeirah-based salon villa will be created at the exhibition’s Inspiration Zone, transforming a corner of The Bride Show Dubai into a miniature ‘Maison de Joelle’. Her styling team will offer demonstrations of make-up, hair styling, henna, and nails; the techniques every bride-to-be should know before her big day.

As an exciting and exclusive offer, on Thursday 9th April, one lucky visitor will be plucked from the crowd to experience Joelle’s signature transformative makeover, filmed live from the Inspiration Zone by MBC and broadcast before millions on “Joelle”.

On her programme, the Lebanese star isn’t admired solely for her skilful application of blush and eyeliner. Joelle’s strategy is comprehensive as she guides her client through makeup tips and fashion boutiques while consulting with top aesthetic health specialists and dieticians.

By the end of each episode, women are more confident with their looks but also with their individuality. Joelle helps women change the way they view themselves, allowing their inner beauty to shine more than anything.

“Joelle Mardinian focuses on internal and external self-improvement, giving tremendous confidence to women looking to reinvent or perfect their looks and their characters,” said Daphne Cota, Exhibition Manager for The Bride Show. “She is a great role model for our visitors at The Bride Show Dubai.”

“The Bride Show Dubai and Joelle Mardinian’s recreated ‘Maison de Joelle’ salon will be invaluable resources for brides-to-be eager to get advice on how to look and feel their best on the big day and Joelle’s personal appearances throughout the four days will be one of the major highlights this year.”

The Bride Show Dubai is the largest wedding and fashion event in the UAE; the 2008 exhibition welcomed more than 30,000 visitors. This year more than 200 wedding industry experts and suppliers from around the world will come together under one roof in a showcase of international design excellence and consummate style.
