World Luxury Expo comes to Doha
November 5, 2013: Taking forward from its previous editions, World Luxury Expo, Doha, the fourth edition of the World Luxury Expo series, will be hosted at the magnificent St Regis, Doha from November 14-16, 2013.
World Luxury Expo showcases a selection of the world’s leading luxury brands in one venue where access is by invitation-only. The World Luxury Expo series has recently concluded three events, the first at Burj Al Arab, Dubai in January, the second in February at the palatial Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh and the third edition took place at Emirates Palace, Abu Dhabi in September 2013.
A vintage 1911 Rolls-Royce Motor Car, set on a floating display in the lobby, will greet guests on arrival. The Expo will feature a wonderful selection of luxury categories including fine art, high-end jewellery, fashion, hand-crafted time pieces, designer furniture and exquisite table settings, luxury automobiles, fine dining, private aviation, and luxury travel.
To celebrate their 20th anniversary, the House of Moiseikin, a Russian luxury brand, has crafted a significant mechanical tourbillon timepiece, Horn of Plenty – Glory. It is made with over 4,800 pieces of natural gemstones: Nautilus, nephrite, diamond, demantoid, sapphire, ruby, tanzanite, amethyst and natural pearls. All coming together in vivid colour to bring images to life of leaves, fruits and a delicate fluttering hummingbird, all inspired by the Garden of Eden. More than 600 pieces of rare Russian demantoids garnets are studded in the clock, creating tremendous brilliance due to the incredibly high refraction qualities of this gem. This piece is valued at more than US$ 2.5 million and consists of over 3,100 diamonds with the total weight of 24.524 carats.
Kashperia will be launching the world's finest and most expensive Guthrah Shawl at World Luxury Expo, Doha. This is a limited edition collection of only 10 pieces made from 100 per cent pure Vicuna wool which is hand-spun, hand-woven and handmade with intricate motifs from the Babylonian era. Vicuna wool is sourced from the higher reaches of Peru (above 14,000 feet) and the animal sheds its wool only once every three years. It takes the wool from three animals to make one Guthrah Shawl. The diameter of this wool used by Kashperia is 11 microns (the human hair is only 15-100 microns).
The Expo promises to unveil further surprises and unique pieces including an exciting line up of luxury automobiles from Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, McLaren and Mercedes-Benz. A selection of other luxury goods and services that invited guests can look forward to viewing at World Luxury Expo, Doha include specialist marine charter service company, Ship & Crew, European luxury homeware, Devine Design, Brazilian jewelry by Fr Hueb, award-winning 4K home cinema projector and 4K BRAVIA television by Sony, luxury travel services by La Conciergerie du Qatar, rare 22-carat gold tea by Qirat Tea, Hamilton Grand luxury golf residences at the world famous St. Andrews golf course, to name but a few.
Following the Doha edition, World Luxury Expo will return to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi in 2014, creating an annual signature series of events in the GCC region.
