Fashion Forward Dubai (FFWD) – the definitive fashion platform for Dubai and the Middle East, which provides a platform and a progressive direction for fashion – will take place from October 25-27 this year.

After a celebrating its milestone tenth season in October 2017 at Dubai Design District, FFWD which has championed Middle Eastern design talent for the past five years and has propelled the careers of many designers both internationally and regionally, will return to showcase couture, ready-to-wear and accessories from established designers as well as debut new talent.

“After 10 successful seasons, Fashion Forward’s next edition will take place in October 2018. The additional time between events will enable the platform to further evolve as we build upon the new event format launched last season, nurture relationships with exciting new talent, continue to support seasoned designers and re-energise the fashion design landscape. Together with our partners, stakeholders and leading industry players we look forward to delivering another fashion event which represents the breadth of talent across the region,” says Bong Guerrero, CEO & co-founder of FFWD.

“To evolve the platform and grow Fashion Forward into a truly remarkable fashion occasion, the team are convening focus groups with key industry stakeholders, media and designers to further understand their objectives, seek feedback and brainstorm new ideas to enhance what is already a highly credible platform,” adds Guerrero.
