We were very excited when the Dior team found us via our website and placed a custom order of 600 metres of white papel picado to decorate their Dior Cruise 19 preview fashion show in Dubai.
The event took place at the Meliá Desert Palm Dubai, an oasis in the middle of the bustling Gulf city. Dior presented their 2019 Cruise Collection, a combination of flowing lace dresses with high necks, cinched bustier dresses and toile de jouy inspired prints, all tied together with a stern nod to British and Mexican equestrian couture.
Part of the night’s entertainment was a show of Mexican Escaramuza Charras, or riders who do choreographed moves on horseback in a traditional colonial style. The Dior models mingled among the crowd and mannequins, sporting leather riding hats or sombreros designed by Stephen Jones.
Above it all, soft desert breezes gently lifted our custom papel picado, a selection of custom flags chosen by the Dior team and brought to life by our ARTMEXICO artisans.
Dior requested their logo be recreated in a traditional Mexican-style floral flag, along with 6 additional designs that they handpicked to highlight their themed event. This is something we collaborate on a lot with brands and individual clients alike, as you can see here and here.
We also give you the freedom to choose between any of the traditional flag designs our artists hand-cut for you, to vibrant effect like the colourful event bunting which we created for the 2019 Annual Brooklyn Artists Ball.
We offer up to 4 customizable flags per order online, but that’s just a number. Our corporate event decor can really be customized to suit your event perfectly and leave your guests in awe.
So remember: if you'd like to discuss custom event decor, just ask!
