Dubai Fashion Week (DFW), founded by Dubai Design District (d3), part of TECOM Group PJSC, and the Arab Fashion Council (AFC), will return from 9 October until 15 October 2023 at d3. The upcoming event will present Spring/Summer 24 collections and include a dynamic, citywide calendar of high-profile fashion shows, exclusive events, book signing, a trunk show in collaboration with Mall of the Emirates, capsule launches, brand activations and industry talks.
The official Dubai Fashion Week, which was launched at an intimate event this Spring, has become the region’s definitive fashion fixture. It evolves from the successful legacy of Arab Fashion Week, with shows planned in line with the global fashion calendar. This autumn, Dubai Fashion Week will again provide an international platform for emerging and established designers to grow their brands, securing Dubai’s position among the global fashion capitals of Paris, New York, London and Milan.
Not only will regional designers get to meet and do business with international buyers and distributors, but the seven-day event will also serve as a gateway for international talent and brands to continue expanding their global footprint through the regional market. The upcoming edition will also have a strong sustainability focus, aligning with the UAE’s Year of Sustainability and the upcoming COP28 in Dubai.
