XEINA AL MUSALLAM BRINGS US : FASHION FORWARD DUBAI 2017 // FFWDDXB
Editorial and Photography by: Xeina Al-Musallam
Tickets: booked. Hotel room: booked. What else? Imaginary “have yet to be written” packing checklist: check.
The thrill of travelling is one thing, even to close destinations, but the thrill that comes with traveling to an event you’ve been anticipating for a while is something else. Especially when it’s a fashion event, and especially when you and fashion are sort of “exclusive.”
I finally managed to sort around my schedule successfully to land a clear spot on Dubai Fashion Forward’s weekend. My application was approved and I’ve been granted a three-day pass. I’m mentally prepared and all that’s left is the execution; packing my whole closet. That wasn’t a joke. Or an overstatement.
What I hope to do with this written piece is to make you forget the words. I want your eyes to generate every feeling you could have read about or discreetly mouthed as your eyes gasp with every piece showcased as you venture here.
I have concisely put together my favorite top six designers. Those who took me and everyone on a journey to another world as their clothes spoke of royal heroines and the secret majestic life of business women.
The clothes in the images will do all the talking. So, sit back, get comfortable and get on board “cloud nine;” the view is damn fantastic.
