As in the past editions, a fashion show featuring emerging international and regional designers selected by Vogue Italia, will take centre-stage at The Dubai Mall’s Fashion Catwalk. Exclusive in-store activations by hundreds of participating retailers, live music and other lifestyle events will also be part of the high profile fashion experience.
Franca Sozzani, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Italia, said, “Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience has achieved impressive stature globally in just two years. Today, it is much awaited by the international fashion circuit not only because of Dubai’s status as the new fashion capital but also to support and encourage next generation of fashion talent.”
Nez Gebreel, CEO, Dubai Design & Fashion Council, said that the event complements the ongoing concerted efforts of the Dubai Design & Fashion Council to set clear industry standards in the fashion industry. “We are confident that the third edition will play a key part in taking Dubai’s fashion credentials to the next level by hosting some of the very best local and international talent, and by driving insightful discussion and networking among the world’s who’s who in the fashion industry,” said Gebreel.
The second Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience, in 2014, welcomed over one million visitors across three days. In-store activities organised by over 200 fashion retailers in The Dubai Mall also contributed to the significant boost in footfall, further underlining The Dubai Mall’s credentials as the ultimate destination for luxury shopping.
