Megan Hess visits Dubai on her ‘Paris Through a Fashion Eye’ Book Tour

It’s always our fave event of the year when the uber talented and gorgeous Megan Hess comes to Dubai on her new book launch tour.

Last year she visited us promoting her ‘New York Through A Fashion Eye’ and this year she celebrated the launch of her ‘Paris’ episode. Click here to see the New York launch.


Paris is an illustrated guide to one of the world’s most-loved fashion cities by one of the world’s most-successful fashion illustrators. In the second of her series of books on classic fashion destinations, Megan Hess takes you on a super stylish adventure through the French capital, showing you the best places for a fashionista to eat, sleep, shop and play – all illustrated in her inimitable, elegant style. Megan’s tour reveals where fashion icons such as Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfield, Chistian Dior and Louis-François Cartier worked and played, the top restaurants, hotels, boutiques and sites to visit, as well as Megan’s own personal favorite places to shop. This is a must-have insider’s guide to Paris for any fashion lover or Francophile.

The glamourous event once again took place at The Fairmont The Palm and treated us to an afternoon of French Style Chic – oooh la la.

Monkey once again got to meet her girl crush or ‘the beautiful princess lady’ as she refers to her. Her signed copy is her pride and joy and not even I am allowed to look at it without asking and having her observe as I read.

Available throughout the month of November, the award winning Mashrabiya Lounge’s legendary Afternoon Tea will be inspired by the themes and colours of the new release (blush pink, gold and black) and the fashion world in Paris, lending itself for Instagram worthy displays. What’s more, those who opt to experience the afternoon tea, will also receive a copy of the book itself.

Executive Pastry Chef Arnaud Souchet and his pastry team have re-created fashionable collections in incredible shapes and flavours promising to dazzle guests’ taste buds. Fashionistas will be able to enjoy the dainty finger sandwiches, delicate scones with luxurious clotted cream and an extensive selection of homemade macaroons in glass jars along with truffles and chocolate lipsticks in jewellery box pass arounds all throughout the month of November.

The Megan Hess Paris Afternoon Tea will be available daily from 2 until 30 November from 12 pm to 6 pm and will be priced AED 210 per person inclusive of one copy of the book ‘Paris through a Fashion Eye’ and AED 155 per person for Afternoon Tea only.
