International supermodels Alessandra Ambrosio, Helena Christensen and Natasha Poly joined the party together with A-listers and influencers from the GGC countries. The new Palazzo Versace sits in the heart of the Dubai Cultural Village, and its architecture is reminiscent of a 16th century Italian palace, with subtle traces of Arabian influence. Versace Artistic Director, Donatella Versace exclusively designed the furniture and interior for each of the 215 rooms, creating the ultimate lifestyle experience in Italian luxury. The five-star property features a world-class spa, an array of fine dining options, magnificent suites, spectacular pools and a children’s club. The Palazzo Versace Dubai is the second Versace resort property in the world; the first opened in 2000, and is located on the Gold Coast, Australia. On the occasion of the grand opening event, Versace brought its couture collection to Dubai for the first time ever, direct from the runway in Paris. For one week following the opening local clientele were able to meet with the Versace Atelier team in person and review the collection with a portion of the proceeds from the couture orders donated to Dubai Cares.
