The event also defined Dubai as an international hub for young designer talents by providing them the platform to showcase their design skills.
“We are extremely excited about the 2nd Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience. Last year was a huge success in terms of attendees, talents, and funds that were raised,” said Franca Sozzani, Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Italia. “To make an event together means to welcome all the people who love fashion, and also to give an opportunity to young talents to show their creativity. This confirms once more that Vogue Italia and The Dubai Mall have vision in common; not only do we share a passion for fashion, but also a commitment to give back to the communities we serve in.”
The second edition will be extended to three days and will feature exclusive in-store activities by the 300 plus participating outlets, live music and lifestyle activities.
