Yesterday I was invited to Ceecode's new showroom in JLT to view their new collection of bags and accessories. Owner and designer Cynthia Pennikian talked about how the designs are made and showed us samples of sketches.
The best part of the event was when she gave us bloggers a chance to design our own "CeeBag" which could become part of CeeCode's Autumn/Winter Collection.
She also let us in on a little secret: the chosen design will be crafted in Florence, Italy!
Cynthia's sister, Nancy Pennikian also had a little nook at the showroom aptly called Nancy 's Corner which features fun and quirky accessories, shoes and hats which she sourced from really nice Turkish brands.
I couldn't take my eyes off this keyboard-inspired ring and Nancy was nice enough to let me walk home with it. =)
It was really nice to meet other Dubai bloggers in the flesh.

We had so much fun goofing around at the photobooth (courtesy of Posenclick, you can see more photos from the event here)
and enjoying the amazing dessert buffet from IT'Sugar.
The event was a huge success! Designers and brands with a soft spot for bloggers will always be close to my heart. More power to CeeCode and looking forward to see the next season's collection.
