Open to budding designers across the UAE, the show is being held virtually today on 22nd April 2021 as part of Fashion Revolution Week in the UAE, an annual programme that promotes sustainable and ethical fashion consumption and production through workshops and seminars.

  • Aysha Thelhath
  • Janine D’Souza
  • Nayana Chulliyot
  • Sandhya Venkatesh
  • Zainab Taher

During the show, our students will showcase 3 original ready-to-wear pieces that incorporate circular design strategies to a panel of industry judges, including Adela Alonso, founder of strategic branding and sustainable growth consultancy Alonso Alonso, and Araceli Gallego, founder of slow fashion e-commerce platform Goshopia. Members of the public are also able to attend and will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite designs.

The competition’s ten finalists are competing to win one of three exclusive prizes, which are focused on providing career development opportunities through industry-led mentorship and education. The winners will be announced during an awards ceremony at the Alliance Francaise of Dubai on 25th April 2021.
