Dubai Modest Fashion Week Celebrates a Successful  Return for 2019

With headline-grabbing events in Istanbul, London and Jakarta under their belt, Modest Fashion Week’s second Dubai showcase saw the region’s finest fashion talents unite for a weekend of true design diversity.

Dubai, UAE, March 13, 2019:  Returning to Dubai for the second time, Modest Fashion Week 2019 brought an array of modest fashion designers, industry experts, fashion buyers, media, VIPs and influencers to the city for a spectacular three-day style showcase. 

With Dubai’s magnificent skyline making the most breathtaking of backdrops, over 40 designers from more than 26 countries took to the catwalk for the second edition of Dubai Modest Fashion Week, held on the stunning rooftop of miX BY Alain Ducasse at Emerald Palace Kempinski, Palm Jumeirah. 

Spanning three days over International Women’s Day Weekend, DMFW 2019 launched on Thursday, March 7, with a welcome by Modest Fashion Week founders Ozlem Sahin and Franka Soeria. Inviting guests to engage in something unique during their time at the event, which focused upon the inclusivity of fashion and the support of worthy global causes, DMFW 2019 kicked off with a fascinating talk by the Council of Modest Fashion, followed by the first runway show of the weekend. 

Leading with designs by the UAE’s Sheikha Hend Faisal Al Qassemi, followed by collections from Niswa Fashion (USA), Imen Bousnina (Austria), Adrianna Yariqa x Gret By Ortenhill (Singapore), CR by Tika Ramlan (Indonesia), College of Fashion Design Dubai (UAE) and Sweet Dulce (Iran), Abu Dhabi-based designer Asiya Rafiq’s Dream & Design for Disabilities showing was the perfect pre-cursor to the humanitarian-focused Talk Show that followed the weekend’s first impressive catwalk show. 

Moderated by Sabrina Salhi, with speakers including DMFW founders Franka Soeria and Ozlem Sahin, designer Asiya Rafiq, influencer Dr. Passant Saleh and Grace El Mahmoud from Shea Global, second Talkshow “Fashion for Good” covered a variety of topics including female body image and the work of Grace El Mahmoud with the under-privileged women in Kenya to highlight this year’s International Women’s Day.

Coinciding with International Women’s Day, March 8, day two of Dubai Modest Fashion Week kicked off with a talk focusing upon that very special occasion. Guest speakers Samah Safi, Muna Al Harbi, Yasmine Youssari, Leyla Fathallah discussed the power of women in our communities and the importance of supporting one another.

A bright and brilliant final show featuring Kazeca Studio (Australia), JD by Jaida Darguti (Turkey), Lina Sukijo (Indonesia) and The Hijab Lee (India) rounded up day two, closing with an exclusive show launching design house Boutallion (Netherlands). Showcasing 20 luxurious, artistic pieces inspired by gardens and florals, and attended by dozens of VIPSs and royal guests, the final catwalk show of the event was a dazzling end to a dynamic and diverse exhibition of global modest fashion flair.  

With a closing speech by Modest Fashion Weeks co-founders Ozlem Sahin and Franka Soeria thanking all participants, partners and visitors of the show, their message focused on supporting businesses in the industry, the importance of diversity and inclusivity and helping people network so  everyone can benefit from this very special global event. 

With Saturday March 9 dedicated to industry talks and workshops, networking events and an opportunity to shop the collections of designs seen on the catwalk over the weekend, DMFW 2019’s final day celebrated a new diversity in fashion, and the burgeoning business prospects the modest fashion industry offers to the talent-rich region of the Middle East.
