Fashion Forward in Dubai

Per: Karen ATHWAL  

FASHION Fashion Forward is the second edition of an event held to celebrate and recognize the fashion industry in the UAE.

Fashion Forward was created in order to promote the fashion industry in the UAE and the GCC region. The second season of this successful event will act as a platform for the fashion industry, focusing the spotlight on designers and up and coming names in the region. More than just showcasing designers and their labels, the event will also provider a deeper look into the business of the fashion industry and the bigger role fashion plays in the region. 

The event hopes to encourage people who want to enter the fashion industry, as well as International buyers  on the look-out for new trends and names in the fashion sector. This year a number of talented and well-known designers will be present, including Rami Kadi, Zayan Ghandour, co-owner of popular concept store Sauce in Dubai, Dina Jsr, Micheal Cinco and Tahir Sultan to name a few. 

The four day schedule will include talks from designers and industry professionals, catwalks, workshops, wide panel discusions and networking events and parties. The event will be held on Tuesday 15th of October to Friday 18th October at the Madinat Jumeirah
