In partnership with Vogue Italia
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.
