Keeping true to their signature events series, the AUB Fashion Club hosted a Moulin Rouge fashion extravaganza at Palais by Crystal on December 6th.
The night started off with a mellow set from one of Palais’ resident DJs as everyone got comfortable and anxious for the much-anticipated highlight of the evening: the fashion show.
rudE’s housy beats were the soundtrack to the elaborate and glamorous display of beauty and fashion, that had everyone snapping pictures with their phones as they marveled in the hidden talents of local and upcoming designers.
After the fabric masterpieces left the catwalk, the organizers kept true to the “Moulin Rouge” theme with a brilliant live performance of the famous “Lady Marmalade” song as the crowd fondly sang along, remembering the legendary movie that made it famous.
Right after LaToya’s vocal talent unfolded, the LAU’s Dance Club presented an upbeat, energetic and beautifully choreographed dance as Pepper’s Resident RnB DJ began his 30-minute blast of Urban music. The Boxx and Faheem gave a special live performance too, adding the cherry-on-top to the already amazingly diverse lineup
1:30, it was back to rudE’s trademark commercial and progressive house music which accompanied the clubbers all throughout the event, interrupted only by the uplifting RnB set and flanked by the slower-tempo opening and closing sets.
All in all, December 6 was a night to remember in the history of the rising Fashion industry in Lebanon, where young and fresh talents get to showcase their work in one of Beirut’s biggest clubs and finest crowds with the help of Loulwa Kassem and Rasha Hamade.
