Colombia’s fashion industry will showcase its unique design with a fashion week celebration in Expo 2020 Dubai, running November 11 to 18, 2021. The fashion week will pay tribute to Colombian artisans and designers, who craft signature pieces using exotic Colombian fabrics by hand.

As part of the fashion week, Colombian artist and entrepreneur Natalia Botero T will handcraft a statement art piece, which will be available for sale at the end of the event. On the first day of the fashion week November 11, Colombia will host a panel discussion featuring fashion designers, Laura Aparicio and Glory Ang Atelier at 4pm and an opening party at 6pm on the opening day.

As one of the largest exporters of flatweave fabrics in the world and has 14,000 companies in the fashion sector, Colombia's commitment to its fashion industry doesn't limit to fashion week. Besides showcasing statement fashion pieces from Colombia in the pavilion, the staff of Colombia will also be sporting garments by designer Esteban Cortázar in partnership with Sutex and ProColombia and footwear produced by Cueros Vélez for the entire duration of the world expo.
