A 'tasty' collection.

Trendsetters gathered once again to sample a 'Taste of Fashion' at the Kempinski Grand & Ixir Hotel Bahrain City Centre's T-Spoon Cafe in a joint extravaganza with the shopping mall.

The venue attracted Bahrain's 'crE me de la crE me' for a preview of CH Carolina Herrara's spring summer 2012 (SS12) collection of dresses, accessories and handbags.

The brand offers a wide variety of ready-to-wear clothes for any occasion as well as shoes, fragrances and even an exclusive collection of lifestyle items all stamped with the unique emblem of CH Carolina Herrera Carolina Herrera could refer to either:
  • Carolina Herrera (fashion designer) - Venezuelan fashion designer
  • Carolina Herrera (entertainer), a Colombian Singer/Guitarist
  • Astrid Carolina Herrera - Venezuelan winner of the Miss World pageant in 1984

Known for its signature red, the cafe boasted red roses on all the tables and kept the decor clean and simple to allow the vibrant dresses to dazzle daz·zle

Stephan Kaminski, the hotel's general manager, said the first Taste of Fashion show was a huge success and last week's event proved just as popular. He said: "It was a great platform for CH Carolina Herrera to welcome the sophisticated, fashionable, self-driven Bahraini women into its world and share with them the best of its SS12 collection."

As the show commenced, numerous mall shoppers were drawn to the event with scores stopping to admire the outfits and take pictures on their mobile phones.

Some lucky guests even walked away with prizes too, including an entire outfit from CH Carolina Herrera worth BD500, a BD100 mall shopping spree voucher and a PURE spa treatment at the hotel.
