Trends and theatre took centre stage at this event which was curated with the right mix of design talent, creativity and high quality of production.
Shining the spotlight on the region’s iconic talent, celebrating diversity through their signature nuances, Fashion Week 2021 was about inclusivity in a subtle and sensitive manner.
A coming together of a like-minded community of creatives, steered by Saif Ali Khan of Supreme Events and creative director Kevin Oliver who both have over 25+ years of experience, this was a show of support for the industry. A timely event which successfully lifted a sector that was flatlining and going into regression in a post pandemic world, Fashion Week 2021 proved to be a perfect platform for established designers, whilst paving the way for fresh fashion graduates.
Saif Ali Khan said, “We are thrilled to set the season in motion. We had conceived this event in keeping with Dubai’s stance of going beyond the pandemic. Just as our visionary leader established Dubai, as a top spot, I wanted to ensconce our creative economy, through our fashion talent.”
The last day saw style even off the catwalks, as fashion lovers turned out to celebrate and support their favourite designers. The posing, the pouts, the insta clicks resonated the joy of celebrating together after a long hiatus.
On that crescendo Fashion Week 2021 dropped its curtains, closing on a successful note.
