Just when fashion week came to an end you thought you could kick off your heels and take a breather. There is so much fashion happening this month of October in Dubai, that you better jot them all down in your calender.
Starting on the 10th is a spectacular fashion affair and a first of it’s kind by Emaar that is taking place at the Dubai Mall, ‘VOGUE FASHION DUBAI EXPERIENCE’. The evening – brainchild of Mrs. Franca Sozzani, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Italia, and Mr. Mohamed Alabbar, Chairman of Emaar Properties – will offer fashion shows, exhibitions, interactive events, celebrity appearances and, of course, plenty of shopping opportunities. It’s not all just about the glitz and glam but also for a good cause to promote education in developing countries through Dubai Cares.
International designers and emerging designers from the Middle East will be showcasing their designs on the The Dubai Mall Fashion Avenue catwalk are;
Italian- Andrea Incontri
Irish-born Simone Rocha
Nigerian Ituen Bas
Russian Julia Voitenko and Daria Golevko
Creators of Esme Vie
Qatari Wadha Al-Hajri
Saudi Arabian Razan Alazzouni
Bahraini Lulwa Al Amin
Celebrating the 25 of years of Vogue Italia you will get the chance to have a look at the iconic magazines covers of the past years in the Grand Atrium of The Dubai Mall. Bloomingdale’s will be hosting a breathtaking exhibiton of haute Couture by designers such as Dolce & Gabbana, Versace, Armani, Valentino, Giambattista Valli, Chanel, Dior, Elie Saab, Jean Paul Gaultier and Givenchy. ‘Touchscreens featuring issues of Vogue Unique from September 2000 to date will be placed around the atrium to give you the complete experience’ (The Dubai Mall).
The Dubai Mall and Vogue will be highlighting the most substantial trend on the market now, eco-sustainable fashion. In the Waterfall Atrium you will find short films and videos presenting wide-ranging eco-fashion projects such as Green Carpet by Livia Firth, Carmina Campus, Alcantara, Edun-Diesel, and Estethica by the British Fashion Council; eco-friendly collections by well-known brands such as Christopher Ræburn, Organic by John Patrick and The North Circular by Lily Cole.
There will be so much happening not to mention the finale of the week with the super glam Gala Dinner that will be held at the Pavilion, at the foot of Burj Khalifa, featuring fashion designers, Middle Eastern and international celebrities, VIPs, and followed by an auction of exclusive Vogue Experiences. All proceeds from the auction will go to Dubai Cares.
