Rounding out season 9 of Fashion Forward of Dubai, I have put together my favourite collections of all three days.

Created by Sadeem Alshehail, this label shows rich and earthy toned dresses and matching luxurious suits and wool fabrics. With influences from art deco shapes and cropped capes over dresses and fitted culottes. Sadeem Alshehail’s collection embodies feminine and elegance.

Oversized coats, bell sleeves and glamorous light fabrics with a touch of fluidity to Kristina Fidelskaya’s collection. A generous nod to the 70’s, velvet thigh high boots and tailored breathable luxurious garments. Kristina blew away the crowd at her Fashion Forward show. Sophisticated city chic would be the perfect wording for her collection.

World renowned fashion designer Abed Mahfouz previewed one amazing gown after another down the runway at his Fashion Forward debut. He opted for a kaleidoscope of colours from tangerine tones to bright sunny day yellow. Was amazing to see so many colours in a collection and such intricate detail in the gowns with hand-sewn beading and perfectly placed feathering

Hussein Bazaza brought his knowledge and understanding of embroidery and gave it a Gothic twist, inspired by Asian style and 40’s influences. He has to be one of the best of all three days, with deep tones of ruby red and various mind-blowing patterns.

With cutting-edge techniques and tailoring for a strong ‘Flower of War’ collection, Amato’s collection was beyond perfection. Very influenced by Japanese culture, models walked with path strewn dirt, tires and telephone poles as they unveiled one stunning look after another.
