The first Pretty Little Things took place last December, and we fondly remember the twinkling light-strung trees, trays of floral ceramic pots filled with aromatic tea, flickering tea light candles and baby yellow roses enchanting visitors, who cozied up with checkered blankets on golden park benches. Inside the venue, a hand-selected group of vendors showcased their wares in an intimate and friendly setting.
This social event was started by Noaf Hussein as a way for creatives, the curious, and those who appreciate the smallest of nuances to get together, shop, chat, and network with bloggers and each other in a beautiful setting. It’s about the small details, the ones that make you smile—the pretty little things.
The next Pretty Little Things, taking place April 28th – May 1st will take place at the hertiage site that is Bait Al Sadu. A collaborative project with the help of Abyat, the effort of this PLT edition is aimed at renovating the local orphanage already taken on by the non-profit organization Khair Al-Kuwait Charity Foundation. In addition to the materials donated by Abyat, event-goers will be able to take part in the charity installation or pledge items from a wish list to complete the renovation. The second Pretty Little Things will also see an exciting lineup of brands by the likes of Saudi Arabian labels Razan Al Azzouni, Fyunka, Sotra Boutique, Bahrani-produced and packaged Green Bar Inc, and local brands like May Jewelry, Peices By Farah, Th’haba, Paper Design Nest,.
