“I’m proud to say that the event has grown to become one of the flagship fashion events of the region, having been involved with Dubai Fashion Week (DFW) from its inception,” said Hassan Sheheryar Yasin, fashion designer, HSY.
“Providing an ultimate platform for designers to showcase their collections to global audience, DFW has become the most important event on the fashion calendar. The fashion industry in the region has developed its own style and identity and DFW celebrates and recognises this,” he added.
Saif Ali Khan, executive vice president, DFW, said: “Throughout the event, our main objective is to strengthen ties and to build business relationships between the fashion industries.”

DFW facilitates business opportunities and interaction between the retail buyers, fashion designers and the top fashion media, with the buyer’s lounge providing a point of contact for buyers and designers to develop business relations. – TradeArabia News Service
