The Arab Fashion Council, organisers of the bi-annual Arab Fashion Week, has announced its next event will be held City Walk in Dubai. The move comes after the council signed a long-term partnership with developer Meraas.

The event will take place from November 15 to 19 with more than 25 regional and international designers signed up to showcase their latest creations. There will also be daily runway shows, presentations, panel discussions and pop-up boutiques.

“We are thrilled to host the fifth edition of Arab Fashion Week in partnership with Meraas as it presents an exciting opportunity to unite the Dubai fashion community. While Arab Fashion Week is an industry-focused event, we want everyone to feel that they are part of it, and together with Meraas, we hope to create another hugely successful event,” said Jacob Abrian, CEO of Arab Fashion Council.

The Arab Fashion Council was founded in 2014 in London. The concept of the event is not only to promote regional talent but also allow international designers to showcase their collections
