A series of events celebrating the arrival of the Cecil Beaton exhibition at Sotheby’s new office in Dubai kicked off with an event where more than 130 guests were treated to an evening of photography and music. As well as having the opportunity to view the classic images, there was entertainment by the very talented local singer Layla Kardan, who debuted her new single As One. The evening was co-hosted by media partner Harper’s Bazaar. Other events to coincide with the exhibition included a children’s event with Sheikha Manal’s cultural office where 30 children attended Sotheby’s Dubai office for a workshop where they were introduced to Beaton’s works and created collages in his style.
