After almost two years full of postponements and cancellations, our fashion calendars are finally filling up again. And this October, you’ll have to make note of one of the region’s most coveted events: Arab Fashion Week.
The event is back in full swing, set to take place in its full physical format October 24 to 28. The five-day event is calling Dubai Design District home this year, showcasing some of the region’s biggest talents alongside a slew of international designers too.
As usual, if you can’t make it—don’t worry. The event will be broadcast live via Facebook. There, you’ll see the newest collections of Arab Fashion Week fixtures, like Amato, whose designs have been worn by the likes of Lady Gaga and Beyonce.
Michael Cinco’s designs will also make their way back to the runway, as well as the Iraqi designer Zeena Zaki. This time around, Lebanese label Emergency Room Beirut will also be showcasing their unisex, sustainable collection—joined by Ester Manas, another sustainable and inclusive label we’re keeping our eyes on.
