Middle East Fashion Week

Season 1 March 2021

Fashion is more than mere fabric much in the same way Petra and the Pyramids of Giza are more than mere stone. Middle East Fashion Week‘s first edition will include two events beginning on Spring 2021 and on the Autumn 2021. These two seasons fall under the umbrella of ‘’Project 10/5’’ where the name itself, says it all: Ten (10) seasons, in five (5) years – with the purpose of establishing the MEFW as one of the five main fashion weeks. Project 10/5 is where the timeless aesthetic of the past meets new age ingenuity.

Little White Dress Party

An Elegant After Party

The "little white dress" is the new essential to every woman's wardrobe. It replaces seductive lace for laid-back broderie anglaise, and second-skin silhouettes for billowing shapes, making it the perfect piece for warmer weather. This event will gather all diehard fashionistas for an after party celebration in the heart of the UAE.
