The only men’s fashion show in the Middle East, Arab Fashion Week, is kicking off this weekend from June 28 to 30 for a fourth edition that promises creativity, sustainability, and the fusion of technology and fashion.
Scheduled to be held at Dubai Design District, Men’s Arab Fashion Week is ushering in Spring-Summer 2023 with both in-person catwalk shows as well as a host of additional events.
Run by the Arab Fashion Council, the show first came onto the scene back in January 2021, and with menswear projected to grow its global market value from AED 1.9 trillion to AED 2.7 trillion by 2027, it’s no wonder there’s so much attention on Arab Fashion Week by some leading designers.
“The region’s fashion industry is on an upward and exciting trajectory,” said Khadija Al Bastaki, Executive Director, Dubai Design District, “With many of the Arab world’s designers carving out a distinct space on the global stage and with prestigious international brands also wanting to engage more with Dubai and the wider region.”
Just see of the regional design labels taking part are Maison Du Mec, Taguelue, and Emergency Room, all from Lebanon, as well as home-grown talent from the UAE including, KA-1, Anomalous, Michael Cinco, and Amato.
In recent editions, the show has attracted the likes of Jean Paul Gaultier, Blumarine, Moschino, and more. This weekend, designers from Europe participating in Men’s Arab Fashion Week are presented by the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, the French body responsible for coordinating Paris Fashion Week. They include Lazoschimdl from Germany, and Valette Studio and Arturo Obegero from France. See you at Dubai Design District.
