I have been watching Fashion Forward through various amount of channels, instragrams and facebook. It is the fashion week of Dubai but the best part its the support for the local market of independent designers and brands. I had the privilege of attending the press conference a few days ago, where they introduced some of the designers and the 3 day event. The designers in the show and at the garden are all independent and a locally established and are internationally known. 

The fashion show have several designers showcasing their collection for the upcoming season.. The Designers are: 

Daneh in Assoscation with The British Council
Taller Marmo present by Gabs
Yousef al Jasmi 


The garden is where accessory designers have the chance to sell their collections this season, it has also just been recently opened to apparel. 


The press conference gave an insight to why Fashion Forward first started and how it has grown. The have reached Season 5 and have added more talks and even a mens brunch ( which we all were waiting for) with Saks 5th Avenue. 

The wonderful thing this year is that Fashion Forward has also collaborated with D3 which is Dubai Design District. On April 2nd to the 4th there is a chance to see the amazing D3 with more events from fashion, music and art and its free. 

I believe with Fashion Forward push to support the local community of fashion designers from apparel to accessories, that Dubai is growing to be one of the fashion cities to look at. I have been watching FFWD from Scotland and admire how much work and dedication they have put into it from the organisers to the community support. 

Here is highlights from Fashion Forward Season 4
