Exclusive EDGAR event: a gentleman's evening with Reiss

October 30, 2014
Here at EDGAR, we don't make any apologies for sometimes steering towards a more exclusive crowd in our search for the region’s refined gentlemen. Never will that have been truer than at our gentleman’s evening on November 4th, in partnership with fashion brand Reiss. The invitation-only event at the British Embassy in Dubai will showcase Reiss’ classic men’s tailoring and quality craftsmanship, as well as celebrating some very British qualities. Hosted by Mr David Reiss himself and Edward Hobart, Ambassador to Her Majesty's Consul General to Dubai and The Northern Emirates, guests will receive a showing of the brand’s AW14 menswear collection, hosted by Reiss design mastermind Alex McCart, who will also offer some expert suit advice for those not in tailored three-pieces.

As if this all wasn’t British enough, James Bond’s favoured choice of car will also be making an appearance – three of them in fact, with Aston Martin showcasing one classic and two more recent models. Held in the British Embassy’s luscious green gardens on the banks of Dubai’s creek, with around 90 VIPs in attendance, you can see now why it’s invite-only. However, if you like the sound of this event, we will be hosting another gentleman's evening with Reiss early next year. So watch this space for details.
