Held under the patronage of Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Architectural Digest – part of APP Group – is celebrating its first anniversary in the Middle East. To underline the occasion, the publication will be curating a charitable auction under the theme ‘One of a Kind’ featuring the work of some of the leading product designers and artists from the Middle East, which will be sold with revenue donated to Dubai Cares. The event will be held in the Annex Burj Khalifa and sponsored by real estate company Wasl Properties, luxury watch brand Audemars Piguet and high-end furniture company Ethan Allen.
“Architectural Digest is celebrating its first anniversary in the Middle East with a charitable design exhibition that aims to give back to the great community that has embraced this publication since its first issue,” says Manuel Arnaut, Editor In Chief, Architectural Digest. “I would deeply like to thank the 13 designers and artists that donated their work. These pieces will be sold through a silent auction that aims to support Dubai Cares. And of course, a very special word of gratitude goes to Her Highness Sheikha Latifa bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Culture and Arts Authority (Dubai Culture), for her patronage and overall support of Architectural Digest and this exhibition in particular.”
