The first edition of Dubai Fashion Week (DFW), founded by Arab Fashion Council (AFC) and Dubai Design District (d3) will kick off this week on March 10 and continue until March 15. While d3 is official location of DFW several shows will take place in new venues and locations across Dubai.
DFW is expected to draw international collaborators, design-makers and visitors, with an extensive gathering of buyers arriving in Dubai following Paris Fashion Week. The event seeks to cement Dubai as a global creative capital and builds on the Emirate’s status as a global hub for business and investment.
Commenting on DFW, Jacob Abrian, CEO of Arab Fashion Council said, “We look forward to unveiling the new Dubai Fashion Week and see Dubai stand alongside its peers as one of the world’s leading fashion capitals. We are delighted to see the Arab Fashion Council, Dubai Design District, Dubai’s major industry stakeholders and member designers join forces to mark a historical move and unite the local fashion scene under DFW’s broad umbrella.”
A range of 45 shows and events are scheduled during DFW involving global brands and designers from across the Arab world and beyond in addition to a series of panel discussions between regional and international buyers to discuss market trajectories.
In addition, DFW will also see a global collaboration between Hot Wheels x Anomalous, showcasing growing synergies between the Arab Fashion Council and Mattel, following the collaboration between Barbie and Lebanese designer Jean-Louis Sabaji in October 2022.
