Dubai to host inaugural Fashion Week Middle East in October
31 August, 2014
October is shaping up to be a busy month for Dubai’s fashion pack. Not only will Fashion Forward take place during the Eid break, but now there’s a new event competing for the same crowd at the same time. Dubbed Fashion Week Middle East, an estimated 50 designers will debut their spring/summer 2015 collections at the Dubai International Financial Centre from October 1 to 4. The event is scheduled to run twice a year – in October and March – and organisers are planning to take the Dubai-based designers Furne One and Shrekahnth to New York Fashion Week to present previews of their collections.
