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.
