New international designers are showcasing for the first time at Fashion Forward Dubai.
The leading Middle Eastern platform for all things style will welcome back familiar faces like Madiyah Al Sharqi, Arwa Al Banawi and Hussein Bazaza but in addition has opened it’s door to leading international names; Anna K, Eudon Choi, João Rolo; Nabil Nayal and Sid Neigum.
Bong Guerrero, CEO and co-founder of FFWD said, “This season’s robust line-up of shows and presentations are a mix of outstanding fresh talent and revered FFWD designers.”
If you’re not familiar with the names then it’s time to do some homework. Ann K is a Ukrainian fashion designer known for her girlish, frilly styles adorned with embellishments like pearls and bows, as well as loose, ethereal silhouettes. Eudon Choi is a hot ticket during London Fashion Week with fans buying up architectural shapes and work separates. João Rolo is your man for extravagant evening gowns while Nabil Nayal’s modern sportswear silhouettes with Elizabethan techniques has won him favours with Karl Lagerfeld. Finally, we have Canadian up-and-comer Sid Neigum who is making waves with his unique use of geometry and sculptured shapes.
This is an exciting move for FFWD concept that aims to inspire fashion lovers regionally and beyond.
