Fashion Forward Dubai


Fashion can move you forward

Time flies, we are all sure of that by now, therefore, we want to go back in time for a bit and remember together these three awesome days we had!
Fashion Forward is one of the biggest fashion event in the Middle East held bi-annually in April and October at Dubai Design District, which includes: Runway shows and presentations by the best couture, ready-to-wear and accessories designers in the Middle East. There are some very interesting talks and  inspiring seminars led by experts and fashion academia, which we totally love to attend.
This being said, I know you guys want to see pictures and emotions more than talks, so I won’t make the text too long this time, because fashion doesn’t need words to be expressed. But I would just like to add that it was the best Fashion Forward edition I have attended in 4 years in Dubai and still living the feeling of those days! 🙂

Day 1

The first day in a fashion show I think it’s spectacular, because everyone attending the event is trying to look the best! I have seen the best outfits in this day, people I have met were totally amazing, inspiring, approachable, friendly and the list could continue. This day gives you a burst of energy to keep your creativity up for the days that follow.

I simply love to see how people express their personality through clothes, style, fashion!
It’s the time of the year when you can go crazy and wear anything you wouldn’t wear on a daily basis!

Day 2

Another long day full of shows and colorful street style, but nothing makes me happier!
As you might have already noticed, I focused more on sharing with you few shots of people like you, like me, randomly, but people who have captured my attention, actually not only mine, let’s be fair!
Second day it’s been a great success, considering the amount of compliments regarding my outfit, which was styled and customized by Rashwan with the help of the talented Ana Novic. Pictures, pictures, pictures!!!

Day 3

Last day of Fashion Forward was still full of surprises. People want to stay memorable and  we have seen the ladies and the gentlemen having some major style credentials throughout the event! To be honest, I am very proud of how everyone excelled with their inspiring and unique wardrobe choices. It’s hard to say which once was my favourite, because fashion is a world where you are constantly in love. Have a look at the last day of this beautiful show!

I hope you have enjoyed the article and I think, by now,  you should have a picture of how Middle Eastern people understand fashion. We are not in NY, Milan or Paris, but we have definitely brought all of them here!
This event was an opportunity for all the talented people around to express themselves, to make new friends, to capture beautiful moments and to perhaps, open new doors for some of us!

Wishing you all a stylish weekend ahead and stay tuned for more news related to the event! 🙂

Kiss kiss,

Andra
