“We see this pop-up event as a playground celebrating contemporary arts and culture during the evenings of Ramadan,” says Latifa Al Hamed, Festember Owner. “For only four nights, Project Warehouse brings a carefully-curated selection of fashion retail, gourmet food & beverage, art installations, and Majlis entertainment. This is an innovative expression that still ties back to our culture and heritage.”
Art themes at the core of Project Warehouse will range from female empowerment to rural Emirati populations and historic mining communities from across the region. The event will feature the work of various local and international artists.
This year, Project Warehouse will welcome the amazing artist from Los Angeles, Oliver Coreaux, who will transform luxury handbags and accessories by “weaving stories to create distinct visual narratives.”
In commemoration of his first visit to the UAE, Coreaux will unveil an accessory capsule collection that will convey an inherent soulfulness that is evident through his engaging works.
Coreaux will be painting a series of tote bags and accessories by Goyard, Celine, Hermes, Louis Vuitton and the fashionable Rimowa, each of which showcases a visual collage comprised of text, symbols and other relatable forms.
Additionally, the event’s retail section will also capture the exclusive feel of a high-end fashion boutique, enabling various brands to showcase the eclecticism that informs the region’s designers.
Project Warehouse gathers a diverse group of trendsetters catering to all tastes, from the budget conscious to the most fashion-forward.
Amongst participating brands and designers include:
Aisha’s Charms – Accessories; Fabula Jewels – Jewellery; Mo De Sel – Accessories; Shell – Abaya; Spindle – Clothing; The Library Fragrance – Perfumes; Gasah – Shoes; Elbotik – Streetwear and the ultra-successful MKS, whose artist and creative designer, H.H. Sheikha Mariam bint Khalifa bin Saif Al Nahyan, launched the brand which embodies the heritage and spirit of the UAE.
Project Warehouse’s dedicated fashion hub, THE LOFT, will feature young, upcoming designers and virgin brands that will be launched during the festival and will have an exclusive and dedicated first viewing in front of our event visitors. An area specially built and tailored to accommodate unique fashion, lifestyle, beauty, and home styling items.
Last, but by no means least, there is the food.
“If art is the core, comfort food is the key ‘ingredient,’” added Latifa Al Hamed. “Think paratha and chips Oman, chai halib, karak, hotdogs in pastries, ever-so-sweet deserts… but gourmet versions. The results will definitely be something to crave!”
