Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience (VFDE) in conjunction with Vogue Italia is returning to Dubai for the second time this year. Following the launch of its talent scouting competition launched in January, organised by The Dubai Mall and Vogue Italia, with the support of BySymphony.com, 20 emerging designers have been selected to showcase their women’s fashion and accessories S/S15 collection, at the exclusive International Talents Showcase will be held on October 31 and November 1 at the Armani Hotel Dubai.
The list of designers include Ahlan! Hot 100 members Hema Kaul and Madiya Al Sharqui who will both show their collections at the event. Also showing their collections will be Anabela Chan from the UK, HKD Eva Lai from the USA and Shamsa Alabbar from the UAE to name a few.
VFDE will also celebrate the talent of eight new international designers at a fashion show to be held at The Dubai Mall Fashion Catwalk on October 30. The designers were selected by Vogue Italia as a part of VFDE’s focus on mentoring the new generation talents. A panel of international fashion players and celebrities will attend the exhibit of their Spring/Summer 2015 collections giving them the opportunity to be seen and potentially break into new markets.
Last year, the emerging designers who presented their collections at the fashion show gained tremendous visibility and consequently achieved acknowledgment by the fashion industry. This year’s selection of emerging as well as up-and-coming new designers is a testament to the incredible potential of the region, and serves as a platform to further support their global fashion outreach! Way to go, UAE!
INFO: Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience will run from 30 Oct to 1 Nov 2014 at The Dubai Mall
