Jamila Dahabreh He surprised this Tuesday by celebrating in style his presence at the Expo Feria Dubai, where Peru has a pavilion. The model exhibited her Munay collection, inspired by Peruvian looms, however, her participation in this international event has received several criticisms.
Designers such as Meche Correa and Jorge Salinas asked the authorities to explain what the criteria were for choosing Jamila Dahabreh as representative of Peru at this fair held in Dubai.
“Magaly TV: La Firme” consulted Promperú’s communications chief, Víctor Urquiaga, about the model’s participation in said international fair, but his version left more doubts than answers.
“The only thing we can say is that she is a person who arrived, and if she identifies as Peruvian, she walks through the pavilion like so many people, but there is no strictly commercial nexus. (…) As far as we have seen, Mrs. Jamila is not there, because there are currently no such business rounds in Dubai“, answered.
In this regard, Magaly Medina questioned the official’s statements after recalling that the model exhibited her garments on a desk next to the national pavilion. “It’s like a peddler, (can you) take out all your rags and sell it? I do not understand“, critical.
Promperu denies that Jamila is part of the Peruvian delegation:
Through a statement, Promperú clarified that Jamilah Dahabreh visited the Peruvian pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai as a tourist, and that he is not part of any commercial delegation so they rule out that he has accessed privileges or State resources.
“The journey of the lady inside the pavilion, alluded to in her program, is the one that all visitors do and then, like several thousand tourists, she has the freedom of choice to consume various dishes in the Peruvian restaurant”, He clarified.
