Applications for this year’s Fashion Trust Arabia Prize are now open.


The annual prize recognises design talent in the Middle East and North Africa and offers winners the opportunity to grow their brands on an international level.


Fashion Trust Arabia successfully launched the first edition of FTA Prize in 2018 under the patronage and presence of FTA’s honorary chair HH Sheikha Moza bint Nasser, and co-chairs HE Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad Al-Thani and Tania Fares.



It is the first initiative of its kind in the Arab world and has so far had great success in supporting some of the most talented designers in the region. With an initial mission to provide financial support, guidance and mentorship to emerging designers in the MENA region, FTA has become so much more: a platform of opportunity through which every talented Arab designer can grow and receive international recognition.


This year’s applications are now open for the following categories:


-Evening Wear



-Jewelry (Fine/Fashion)

-Debut Talent (2021, 2022, 2023 graduate)


If you’re a designer from the MENA region looking to give your brand a boost through financial support and industry mentorships with some of the biggest names in fashion, find out how to submit your application Here
