The final episode was held at a venue that was built specially for this event at Dubai Design District and included musical performances from the superstars Mohamed Hamaki, Samira Said and Wael Kafoury in addition to that lots of celebrities and fashion icons as Yousra and Dorra attended this life event.
In my opinion the most amazing thing about this program was that it gave us the chance to get to know Elie Saab much better not just as the international fashion designer that we all know and proud of but also as a very down to earth person, he was so sweet with the contestants and really tried to give them the opportunity to express themselves and make good use of his experience.
