In partnership with Vogue Italia

Emaar Properties

an UAE based international property development/real estate corporation

will host a three day fashion extravaganza:

Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience (VFDE)

During the three day event, twenty emerging designers from around the world

will showcase their s/s 2015 collections

in the categories of womenswear and accessories

at the Armani Hotel, Dubai.

These talented creatives were selected to present

following a competitive process, judged by a panel of industry professionals.

It seems fitting that a group of up and coming international designers should

gain additional exposure of their work at an up and coming international

fashion shopping location like Dubai.
