I had hoped to get these posts up sooner but it has been a hectic couple of weeks!
Last week though I attended Fashion Forward Season 2 (FFWD) which I had really been looking forward to. Taking place at Madinat Jumeirah, it was extremely well-organised which really makes a difference – events I’ve been to in the past have been so chaotic that I’ve gone on one day and not bothered to go back for any of the other days. Fashion Forward though was busy and buzzing but relatively calm with everything in order – just how I like it! And for fashion, things seem to run fairly on schedule!
I hate to admit it but this time I was ‘one of those bloggers’ and having lost track of the days (where has this year gone?!) I registered late so a special thanks to the press team for getting my press pass ready so quickly!
With the ultimate aim being to drive forward the region’s fashion industry, FFWD presented a number of inspiring talks and panel discussions as well as of course – plenty of catwalk shows from top designers.
I was happy to see Tahir Sultan on the list as I had recently been to the London Fashion Week show so it was great to see a second show of his but I also enjoyed the mix of regional designers I hadn’t come across before. Of course not all were to my taste but what impressed me was not only the variety but the quality of particular collections.
Watch this space for posts on my favourite shows!
