Middle East Fashion Council (MEFC)Driving Sustainability From and For The Region
The Middle East Fashion Council (MEFC) is a non-profit organization whose main objective is to enhance potential talent and offer support.
The MEFC is a champion and advocate for the Middle East’s fashion designers and provides opportunities for them to express themselves and pursue their passion for fashion.
Our fundraising is fueled and powered by key players in the fashion, luxury, hospitality, lifestyle, tech, media, government, and sustainability spaces. The contributions help us produce our events, and drive charitable initiatives for local fashion schools (interns), arts academies, and budding designer support.
With support from the British, French, Italian and American fashion councils, our dream is to showcase the many gifts, talents, and creativity the Middle East has to offer the world.
The MEFC is committed to supporting the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals and places a significant focus on improving the fashion’s industry’s issues in manufacturing and supply chain.
In line with this objective to be the platform of reference, and drive change across the MENA
and Indian Sub-continent the MEFC endeavors to build a real ecosystem uniting all actors in
the fashion value chain.
The MEFC partnerships are first and foremost about purpose. The partnership with The Sustainable City, UAE home-grown and global leaders in sustainable housing and development, is key to the MEFC, as is the partnership with Dubai Global Connect, an Invest Corp Dubai venture. In a highly disruptive and unconventional approach, these partnerships signal a new era for the region, opening a wider, more inclusive dialogue beyond the confines of the fashion industry.
