Heriot-Watt Dubai students set for fashion show
Dubai, May 18, 2011
Students from Heriot-Watt University’s Dubai Campus will be showcasing the latest fashions on Friday, as models take to the stage clothed in garments of the students’ own creation.
The event will be held at the Student Hub in Dubai International Academic City and the catwalk will be filled with a number of spectacular designs from students within the fashion design programme and exhibitions from fashion marketing & retailing students.
The show also incorporates menswear from the first year fashion students.
Architecture, Japanese 3D design and draping are among the themes that have inspired the students’ work this term.
Several leading retail brands such as Splash, Babyliss and Spring Footwear from Club Apparel are sponsoring the young talent, with DIAC Hub as a main venue supporter, and Style360 lending their support and tools.
As well as sponsoring the event, Babyliss will be styling hair backstage, providing gifts for the models and also the prestigious Judges awards.
Splash will be lending some special accessories for the models and spring footwear from Club Apparel will be providing shoes. Mushkbar Beauty salon is providing the glamorous and eclectic looks of the models.
The students are also currently working on a creative collaboration with “Mawaheb for Beautiful People”, and the specially designed piece will be making its debut appearance on Friday.
“The fashion show is an excellent opportunity for students to bring their creations to life and showcase their talent and passion that they have for their work,” said Vanessa Northway, the academic head of the School of Textiles & Design.
“It is also a platform for potential new students to learn more and be inspired by creativity and opportunities that the course creates. Everyone has worked extremely hard on this event and we look forward to welcoming everybody on Friday,” she added. – TradeArabia News Service
