Dubai to host inaugural Fashion Week Middle East in October

posted on 02/09/2014: 2334 views



October is shaping up to be a busy month for Dubai's fashion pack. Not only will Fashion Forward take place during the Eid break, but now there's a new event competing for the same crowd at the same time. Dubbed Fashion Week Middle East, an estimated 50 designers will debut their spring/summer 2015 collections at the Dubai International Financial Centre from October 1 to 4. The event is scheduled to run twice a year – in October and March – and organisers are planning to take the Dubai-based designers Furne One and Shrekahnth to New York Fashion Week to present previews of their collections.

Other regional designers are yet be announced, but one guaranteed international attendee is America's Betsey Johnson.

The eccentric 72-year-old started her label back in 1978 and became known for playful designs in hippy-inspired, flowing fabrics and her much-loved shades of pink. In the early 2000's Johnson attracted a new generation of fans when she designed pieces for Sarah Jessica Parker's character Carrie in the HBO series Sex and the City. In recent years, the designer experienced financial difficulties resulting in her filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in 2012 and closing the majority of her 63 stores.

The question on everybody's lips… will Johnson perform her trademark cartwheel at the end of her runway show in Dubai? – The National - http://www.thenational.ae/blogs/all-dressed-up/20140831/dubai-to-host-inaugural-fashion-week-middle-east-in-october
