FASHION FORWARD DATES ANNOUNCED
Fashion Forward (FFWD) is back this October for its 10th season. Dubai’s bi-annual fashion event will take place from October 26-28, this time in a new location – The Design Quarter at d3. The event, which is endorsed by the Dubai Design and Fashion Council (DDFC), promotes local designers through catwalk shows and pop-up stalls. Expect to see the return of designers including Michael Cinco (above), Amato and Kristina Fidelskaya (below), as well as new designers joining the event. As always, there’s ready-to-wear and couture collections, and jewellery and accessories.
‘This October is a key milestone in FFWD’s evolution as we celebrate the tenth edition of the platform in our new home in the centre of Dubai’s creative hub,’ says Bong Guerrero, CEO and co-founder of FFWD. ‘With the continued support of d3 and DDFC the platform has become the reference point for regional design talent and a launch pad for international visibility. Each season we introduce new concepts, explore new topics of conversation, discover new talent and deliver a new experience while providing an environment where passion, collaboration and purpose meet.’ Designer registration is now open.
