Dubaï puts on a show and the spotlight is on the new generation of designers!

Dubaï has been transformed into a fashion capital, one that is desirable, and at the forefront of a generation of young designers, both international and local. Organised by the cheikh Mohamed Alabbar, visionary entrepreneur of this exuberant city and with the support of Franca Sozzani editor in chief of Italian Vogue, takes place over 3 days of meetings with designers and a fashion show in the heart of the Mall, with an audience of celebrities. Dubai is open minded and is always at the top and forward thinking… Interviews: Lubna Al Zakwani: We always take inspiration from our main country Oman where we were born, and we always take inspiration from there with the beauty, the nature, architecture and heritage. Stella Jean: I needed to communicate a bit of my identity, I was born in an Italy from the 80s, who wasn’t ready for a multiracial family like mine, so when I got the opportunity, I spoke with my own way so : fashion. Shamsa Alabbar: My jewellery is very arabic, I started my jewellery two years ago and it’s very inspired by Dubai and really represents our modern woman in Dubai, she’s very stylish, she’s modern, up to date with fashion. Amira Al Khaja: We personally really do love this attire, and we have a social responsibility to keep it, not let it go away because traditions tend to go away. Christopher Esber: I’m inspired by very tailored construction and looking at how clothes are made and architecture, but for me, my style, it’s very feminine but it’s also very structured and powerful. Nikita & Tina Sutradhar: The main graphic of the collection is the weave colours, they come from the bright colours around the swimming pool. Lamia Alsudari: I think about the prints before I do anything else, with this collection called “Come Undone” it was the notion of a bow, the signature assudari thread that goes throughout all my collections is geometry. Salvatore Piccione: To be here in Dubai it’s a great experience it means a lot because my product is really decorative and you can see that people really like excess.
