The event took place at the Ball Room, Oriental Hotel, Victoria Island.
Toyin Lawani, CEO of TiannahStyling and Creative Director of Elegante by TiannahStyling helped in creating and bringing her designs to life.
Speaking about her new collection, Mariam said she was inspired “by the ceiling of famous palaces like the palace de Versailles and paintings from artist like Leonardo da Vinci and others during the renaissance period. The Acanthus plant has also inspired the embroidery style in the dresses I have designed to give it that baroque element’’.
