The Arab Fashion Week, a showcase for selected regional designers, will return for its third edition from October 6 to 10 at the Meydan Hotel in Dubai, organisers have announced. The event ‘aims to promote and realise the dreams of designers from the Arab world and beyond by providing them with an opportunity to showcase their creativity’, says the Dubai-based Arab Fashion Council.

“The Arab Fashion Week presents for the first time the men’s ready-couture, renewing its commitment to support the development of entrepreneurship and fashion industry. Thanks to dedicated workshops and presentations in collaboration with the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), fashion experts and buyers will be able to both attend fashion shows as well as seek opportunities to learn about advanced techniques in the textile and embroidery sectors,” said Jacob Abrian, CEO of the Arab Fashion Council.

A full list of designers will be announced soon. Go to www.arabfashionweek.org.
