Arab Fashion Week’s First Show

Glamour in D3.

Dubai Design District (D3) and the Arab Fashion Council created the opening evening of Arab Fashion Week.

Harper’s Bazaar Arabia shares, “Egyptian designer Maram Borhan opened Day One of Arab Fashion Week, wowing the crowd with her bridal pieces and feminine creations, followed by Giannina Azar – a designer from the Dominican Republic who has Lebanese roots – who showcased her bold creations. The evening concluded with Palestinian designer Ihab Jiryis’ latest collection; having a master’s in theatrical and cinema costume, his dramatic flair shone through within his creations. Dubai-based Tunisian model, Ameni Esseibi, walked the show. A true trailblazer, Ameni is the Arab Fashion Council’s first plus-sized ambassador.”

In a response to stay innovative with digital fashion show trends becoming a more accessible part of fashion weeks, the AFC partnered with Meta to stream the evening on Instagram and Facebook. This is part of a larger trend to make fashion more accessible to the digital world. The glamourous evening showcased the finest talent of the region.
