Celebrating Bahraini Talent at the Frenchly Reunited Gala

The French Embassy in Bahrain hosted the annual France Alumni Day, spotlighting Bahraini alumni with a gala featuring art exhibits, musical performances, and a fashion showcase.

The French Embassy celebrated several Bahrainis that studied in France over the years in the ‘Frenchly Reunited’ gala.

The France Alumni Day, which is a global initiative led by Campus France- a national agency for higher education- was held under the patronage of French Ambassador Eric Giraud-Telme.

This function takes place every year in French embassies worldwide, celebrating the talent and diversity of inspiring students who chose France for their education.

“The aim is to create a spirit of community for all those who are ready to share this amazing experience they have in common,” said a spokesperson.

Three Bahrainis started the celebrations by sharing their experiences, before pursuing careers in the academic, legal and international institutions sectors. Shaikha Hessa Al Khalifa, who is an alumnus from Cordon Bleu, Sorbonne Abu Dhabi, as well as founder and CEO of Curiously Hungry, shared a culinary experience with guests.

Renowned artists Husain Milad and Adnan Al Ahmed, both Ecole Nationale des Beaux arts Paris alumni, exhibited their art pieces, and Institut francais de la Mode alumni Fatima Dito played piano for guests. There was a screening as well of a short film produced by Blu Steel Films, co-founded by Mohammed Fakhro, and the making of an after-movie shot by Zahraa Shams. Both attended ECIAR which is a film school.

During the reception, six prizewinners of the ‘Fashion Week : from Paris to Manama’ were present and wearing their own fashion creations.
