At its tenth season, Fashion Forward took over the Dubai Design District growing its audience from invite-only to everyone who loves fashion. It was a three-day celebration of style featuring runway shows, presentations, exhibitions, talks, shopping, music, and film. Here is my recap of the shows I attended!
Dress: LKC/Edgy Opulence Lifestyle Brand
Shoes: Ted Baker
Tote: Ted Baker
The Fashion Future segment was literally filled with the future of fashion! Recent graduates of various universities from all over the world had their signature collections on display and they were absolutely stunning in creativity. From steam punk motifs, to Hip Hop inspired, to Victorian twist, you saw a little bit of everything in the display hall. Here are a few pictures of my favorite pieces from the showroom.
Hat: H&M with Burberry Scarf wrapped around
Skirt: LKC/Edgy Opulence Lifestyle
Clutch: Lipstick Killers Collection
Utruj – abayas and other conservative pieces of clothing which is totally appropriate for the UAE
Necklace: Jade necklace, Shanghai, China
Leggings: Cheetah print Torrid leggings (I cut them into Bermuda style)
Shoes: H&M Black Snakeskin ballet flats
Clutch: Lipstick Killers Collection vintage
Retail Shops – Accessory Designer Bija
All in all I had a great time because it’s Fashion darling! Runway shows could have been better, I wasn’t really impressed or wowed by the shows I attended to be truthful. But the fashion students were freaking amazing and the retail shops were amazing as well. Stay tuned for coverage of the next fashion event Arab Fashion Week!!! Soooo excited, it’s coming in about two weeks! Until the next time…
