The Arab Fashion Week (AFW)

  • Public Group
  • The Arab Fashion Week (AFW), is founded in 2015 by Jacob Abrian, the Founder and CEO of the Arab Fashion Council, is a biannual fashion event endorsed by the Arab Fashion Council, AFW is hosted in Dubai in partnership with Meraas. UPCOMING DATES Considering the COVID19 status and precautionary measures the local authorities have implemented recently to avoid crowd gathering and for the safety of our members, partners and the fashion community, the AFC has come into a major decision to revolutionise the format and business of the fashion week. Hence, the Arab Fashion Council is glad to announce that from 2 June – 7 June 2020 the Arab Fashion Week goes online, a new virtual experience enabling everyone to watch the shows live on Tiktok broadcasting to over 300 million people, where buyers can order the collection through a 360 degrees online showroom, and clients can buy their favourite looks, in see-now; buy-now format through designated luxury online stores. ABOUT The Arab Fashion Week (AFW) is a biannual event, endorsed by the ARAB FASHION COUNCIL (AFC) the world’s largest non-profit fashion organisation that represents the 22 Arab countries members of the Arab League as an extraterritorial international authority. Since its first edition, the AFW has been recognised as one of the world’s highest-profile designers showcase alongside to the other four big fashion weeks held in New York (NYFW), London (LFW), Milan (MFW) & Paris (PFW) being officially on the international calendar. In addition, AFW is the only official fashion week in the world for promoting the Ready-Couture and Pre-Collections which defines the international industry scene of luxury fashion in Dubai and the Arab World. PROUDLY, THE ARAB FASHION WEEK (AFW) IS THE WORLD’S ONLY PLATFORM PROMOTING THE ‘READY-COUTURE’ COLLECTIONS, WHICH IS KNOWN ALSO AS ‘DEMI-COUTURE’, ‘PRÊT-À-COUTURE’ OR ‘COUTURE-À-PORTER’. ​ READY COUTURE In today’s world, the same 10k euro dress is being sold in 100 plus point of sales around the world. However, the luxury client is looking for more privacy and exclusivity at that price point. In 2017, he or she also looks for more social responsibility and care for the ecology. Accordingly, Ready-Couture is the answer to all these concerns by diminishing ‘à-la-chaine production’ and re-establishing a more privileged designer/ client relationship that has been lost with Ready-to-Wear. It is also the economic model that fits the Middle Eastern and Asian markets, knowing that the designers of those regions create custom garments for their clients in need of adjustments or personalization, as opposed to mass production due to traditions and personal preferences. RESORT While the Pre-Collection presentations are scattered around the world, it becomes tough for buyers and press to follow; however, Pre-Collections are the fastest rising RTW seasons and the most successful in stores. “I had no concept that these additional lines would come to represent such an important part of my budget,” Bridget Cosgrove, Fashion Director of Boutique1, says. Consequently, AFW decided to open their impressive infrastructure to brands wishing to increase their pre-collection visibility by hosting them in a truly exotic travel destination that is Dubai. (just as Chanel and Public School recently did). The AFW will provide the perfect infrastructure for hosting the show, buyers, and press. STRATEGY AFW is the world’s only platform that pioneers the concept of Ready-Couture. After its success, the AFW paves its way to celebrate Dubai as the capital for Pre-Collections. As Paris Fashion Week is the Haute Couture powerhouse, the Arab Fashion Week aims to be the benchmark of the Ready-Couture as well a perfect destination for Pre-Collections happenings. Our concept is to offer a single 5 days event that gathers buyers, UNHI clients, and press from around the world, likewise, a key-in-hand opportunity to organize a Pre-Collection or Ready-Couture fashion show creating impactful events and photo content for the brands. HISTORY On the 23rd of Apr 2015, H.E. Cav.
