Qatar Airways is proud to be the Official Airline Partner of the Grazia Style Awards Qatar 2018, which is all set to take place at St. Regis Doha on 5 November 2018. The event will see top style icons, fashion designers and brands awarded and recognised under the theme ‘Celebrating Qatar’.

Qatar’s most influential women's monthly magazine, Grazia is celebrating the third successive edition of the Grazia Style Awards in Qatar. Known for commemorating everything fashion has to offer from its designs and brands to its trademark destinations, Grazia will be recognising some of the most prominent names that have made a difference both locally and globally in the elite field of fashion in Qatar, at the Grazia Style Awards Qatar 2018. The evening will also welcome top players in the international fashion industry to the awards ceremony, including the event’s guest of honour, renowned international fashion designer Reem Acra. Known for her breathtaking collections ‘Ready to Wear’ and ‘Bridal’, Reem Acra combines the traditional with modern elements and continuously revolutionises the frontiers of fashion.

Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al Baker, said: “We are thrilled to be the Official Airline Partner for one of the most anticipated and glamorous fashion events of the year. The theme ‘Celebrating Qatar’ couldn’t be more apt for the iconic Grazia Style Awards Qatar 2018, as Qatar continues to support, cultivate and encourage both established and emerging brands in the region. We are also honoured to be flying renowned fashion designer Reem Acra in style to Doha on board our latest generation aircraft equipped with our award-winning Business Class product Qsuite, giving her the best experience in the sky.”

Qsuite is currently available on select Qatar Airways’ Boeing 777-300ER, Airbus A350-900 and A350-1000 aircraft. This revolutionary product is flying to various destinations around the globe including Paris, New York, Washington, D.C., Bangkok, Shanghai, and London Heathrow, to name a few.

Patented by Qatar Airways, Qsuite features the industry’s first-ever double bed available in Business Class, as well as private cabins for up to four people with privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room, a first of its kind in the industry. Sliding panels allow passengers in adjoining seats to transform their space into private cabins so business colleagues, families and friends can work, socialise and dine together during the flight. These revolutionary features led Qatar Airways to win the ‘Best Business Class Seat’ and ‘Best Business Class’ awards at the 2018 World Airline Awards, managed by international air transport rating organisation Skytrax. 

Qatar Airways continues to support and sponsor local and global events of this calibre. This is the second consecutive year Qatar Airways has partnered with Grazia Style Awards as Official Airline Partner. In addition, Qatar Airways also recently sponsored the Fashion Weekend International 2018 show featuring celebrity fashion designer Manish Malhotra and global celebrity icon Aishwariya Rai Bachchan. Other sponsors at the Grazia Style Awards Qatar 2018 include Exclusive Fashion Partner Salam Stores; Official Automobile Partner Rolls-Royce Motor Cars Doha; Exclusive Hotel Partner The St Regis Doha; Art Partner Fahad Al Obaidly, and Official Creative Partner, The Creative Union.
