A new fashion season is upon us and it’s time to reboot our wardrobe for this winter. I love mixing my pieces to create stylish work outfits. However, one thing I struggle with in Dubai is finding unique and local designers who create fashionable and wearable pieces. We know there are many talented designers in Dubai but unless you spend hours looking through Instagram they can be hard to find.
Well we now have the solution for you and it’s right here in Dubai Mall. Galeries Lafayette have collaborated with Fashion Forward (FFWD) to bring us fashion lovers something EPIC
FFWD is a fashion platform for the Middle East which promotes local design and fashion production. Hence we were very excited when they announced the collaboration with the prestigious Galeries Lafayette. This is amazing news for fashion lovers shopping in Dubai.
Galeries Lafayette curated a Fall/Winter ’16 selection from Fashion Forward Season 7 designers to feature in the FFWD Pop Up Store. The Middle East’s best designers now have their beautiful wearable creations available to purchase until October 24th 2016 in the Womenswear department, 1st floor, The Dubai Mall.
Being the third consecutive season these two fashion leaders have joined forces we know you will be able to find something you will love in this exclusive collection. I have come across many designers in Dubai and though they are all talented in skill few manage to move away from an arts and crafts look to runway worthy masterpieces.
So why not check it out as not only will you find pieces that no one else will have, you will also be supporting local design and creativity.
To help you chose from the many designers we have picked our top three for work wear pieces:
We love Salta as her designs are minimalist with a hint of oriental, uber stylish! Concentrating her designs on elegant fresh cuts and simple colours her clothes give you that young on trend feel. Check out her business collection for 2016. This talented lady knows how to dress using simple and dynamic styles for women. She is the biggest fashion designer to come out of Kazakhstan.
Each item is a unique work of art – Salta™
We just cannot get enough of Fidelskaya. Her designs are a twist on traditional staples using textures by experimenting with different fabrics. She mixes the newest tendencies with classics.
ASSAF is nailing it when it comes to the over sized trousers. They are perfect for work and the designers creations are perfect for all occasions to dress up and down as you will. Plus with the perfect nudes and oranges used in the prints they are the perfect items to mix with your darker blouses.
Do not be shy about wearing these types of trousers to work they are elegant and stylish for the office….You can find inspiration on how to wear culottes to work here>>
Remember the collection has been carefully selected so no designers will have their whole range in stock. Also stock sells out quickly and once it’s gone, it’s gone.
Visit soon to avoid missing out on beautiful and unique finds.
