If you’re anything like Team Gaggler and missing their twice-yearly fashion week fix, we have good news – Spring 2021 will see Dubai play host to the very first Middle East Fashion Week.
Dubbed the Middle East’s Biggest Fashion Event, and endorsed by the Middle East Fashion Council, MEFW will span five days and showcase the work of more than 20 fashion designers, with catwalk shows, fashion forums, trunk shows, VIP lunches, galas and awards ceremonies all celebrating the region’s unique and diverse fashion talent.
Signing 10 fashion weeks over five years across the Middle East with founding partner, BurJuman Centre, and lead by Middle East Fashion Week’s founder and president, Antonio Rubel, the brand new event promises to be a significant springboard for launching Arab fashion talent to a global audience.
“The Middle East is the new fashion capital of the world and we want to shout about it,” said Antonio, whose vast experience in the industry has seen him mastermind nine fashion weeks in Dubai, two in Beirut, one in Riyadh and two Al Arabia Fashion Days in Moscow. “Middle East Fashion Week will be a magnificent concoction of creativity, flair, talent, and energy, showcasing fashion designers from around the world in one stunning location. We have been bringing fashion events to the region for more than seven years now, but this will be like nothing the Middle East has ever seen before.”
With more details due to be revealed in the coming weeks, we can’t wait to see what else is planned for what is sure to be a brilliant boost for the region’s fashion industry. Watch this space!
