Fashion | Arab Fashion Week Season 5 Review

IMG_0004

Another season has launched for Arab Fashion Week from November 15 – 18, 2017! The venue was the iconic City Walk in the heart of Dubai’s downtown area accompanied by beautiful spring like weather. The designers ranged from countries far and wide including local Emirati designers, Switzerland, Bali, Italy, and Malaysia. Here is a look at my favorite looks and my looks for the three out of four nights I attended.

After all of the fashion and wonder, the night ended in the Toro lounge where we received two free drinks of our choice with soft house/club music, a great terrace view of City Walk, and networking and mingling with other fashionistas. We discussed our favorites of the week’s festivities and what we were going to wear on the next season. Arab Fashion Council keeps getting better with more talent, more ambience, and an incredible respect for the diversity fashion has to offer. I am so looking forward to the next season! Until the next time…
