On march 30th mark your calenders for the most delectable decadent event of this season – it’s Chocol’art!!! Chocol’art is a charity event being held in Dubai. It encourages artists, fashion designers, sculptors, crafters and other people from different creative fields to collaborate and design pieces especially for the event.
These works of art will then be auctioned off and will go to to the Make-A-Wish foundation in UAE. This is a charity which helps children in the UAE with cancer, granting them “wishes” thus making their wishes come true.
This year’s event is sure to be an evening of sophistication as it’s theme is “chocolate at the movies”, so it is all about film star glamour – think James Dean, Marylin Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and iconic movies like the Godfather,A Clockwork Orange, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Scarface etc.
This interactive event aims to get everyone involved and aside from the auction, Chocol’art will feature live entertainment music and food including ofcourse a variety of CHOCOLATE dessert which is funnily enough where Chocol’art gets its name.
Word on the street is the world famous chocolatiers Lindt plan to display giant chocolate easter bunnies and a chilli chocolate fountain for the event.
One of my favorite fashion boutiques “Polka Dot Cat” will also be present at the event – auctioning off a beautiful english-tea rose style dress inspired by the Garden of Eram, which was interestingly enough, also worn by Miss England.
Not to mention yours truly -I’ll be auctioning some of my fashion illustration prints, which are movie star glamour inspired. I have also teamed up with uber glam fashion boutique “Alison & Marie” and we are producing limited edition fashion illustration T shirts together.
My art paired with their beautiful beadwork is a creative match made in heaven. Alison & Marie will also be custom making gorgeous intricate clutches, inspired by the film “Easter Parade” and I am sure they will be a huge hit!
Tickets for Chocol’art are available at at Kitch Cupcake DIFC, Bubbles&Boba Dubai Mall, Republique Nightclub and O Concept Store Jumierah or online over here
I will leave you with a sneak peak of the my prints down below. Enjoy!!
