After its huge success in 2013 Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience in conjunction with Vogue Italia will be returning for a second year. This year promises to be even better with more celebrities, more fashion and more recognition for some of the region’s most talented designers.
This time around The Dubai Mall, Vogue Italia and Bysymphony.com are launching a talent-scouting competition in the lead up to the big event. The program has been designed to seek out and recognise the region’s ‘next generation’ of designers. The most promising designers will be mentored by international fashion experts and their designs will be showcases at the Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience.
Franca Sozzani, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Italia spoke of the competition. She said “Dubai today is the must-be place for the global fashion industry, and The Dubai Mall, a definitive fashion destination. The city serves as the hub for talent across the region to attract international attention through Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience. Our global talent scouting competition, aimed at young designers, will further elevate the city’s credentials in the fashion industry.”
