Fashion lovers from all different communities and segments of life took part in a number of activities as part of day 4 at the Fashion Forward Dubai being held at Dubai Design District (D3).
Designer Nadya Dzyak turned a Friday into a glamorous affair with her candy-coloured and sky-inspired dresses during the runway – bringing a whimsical feel to the day’s opening show.
Attendees were then treated to Atelier Zuhra’s sartorial extravaganza. If Cinderella had to hire a designer to dress her for 2050, she’d turn to Atelier Zuhra’s designs. Fairytale met futuristic design as the label played on heartstrings with tulle, feather, crystal-embellished pieces that are ideal for red carpets.
Here’s what’s in store for the grand finale.
