September is such a great month for fashion, as the new season kicks off the invitations start flooding in for brands to exhibit their latest collections.

Here I am at our Reiss AW13 New Season Collection Launch which was exclusively for the Bloggers' in the region.  It was such a beautiful event, taking place in a luxury ski chalet behind the slopes of Ski Dubai at the Kempinski Hotel.

The regions top Bloggers' were invited for an exclusive unveiling of the A/W13 collection ahead of the local media, where was treated to delicious canap├ęs and mulled wine whilst we watched a catwalk of the new season trends.  Reiss presented a gorgeous collection, staying true to their elegant tailoring and traditional style, we saw some exclusive prints, a lot asymmetrical details and lots of leather mix pieces.

I wore the Reiss TEDDY dress which was very sculptured and fitted piece that held you in at all the right places.  I loved the midnight blue colour with the cream contrast, colour blocking is making a come back for Autumn Winter so I am happy I already have a formal piece from the trend in my wardrobe.  I teamed my dress with my standard cream stripy shoes from Zara, my go to kicks when I have a long night ahead standing.

The venue was absolutely gorgeous and felt like was on vacation in Aspine.  Each room has floor to ceiling windows that looked over the ski slopes of Ski Dubai.  It had a log fire and the AC was turned down low so it had such a wintery feel that complimented the collection.  After the catwalk had finished we were served hot coca with marsh mellows which was a really lovely touch.
