RIVA rocks!

Hold on for a moment please peeps – while I get on my high horse. I’ve been blogging in Bahrain (yes on an actual www.com blog) since June 2012. And since then, I’ve been to no end of events. Some good, some not so good. But the event I went to today – the launch of the biggest RIVA store in the Middle East at The Avenues – was SMART. And event management companies, please take note. THIS was the right way to do it. 

Some of the RIVA dresses I tried on prior to the event
Hmmm – which one did I choose?

Tarteeb contacted a select group of influencers earlier in the week, to invite us to the store opening, and to go into RIVA City Centre beforehand to curate a complete outfit to wear at the opening.

The amazing Ashwathy of @askthestylecouncil and I in our very different RIVA looks

And the result?

  • we went SHOPPING (Whoop whoop!)
  • the influencers at the event were rocking the latest RIVA looks, styled in their own way
  • the media took pics of aforementioned influencers wearing RIVA
  • everyone looked amazing
  • everyone was happy
Traditional Bahraini musicians and non-traditional dancers entertained the crowd

Followed by a super-cute fashion show

Such a simple concept, but simply fabulous.

Thanks RIVA, and thanks Tarteeb. xx
