Fashion Forward Dubai’s 2021 event will take place from April 2nd to 4th at the Dubai Design District (d3). There will be designers ranging from couture to indie brands. Guests will be able to enjoy dazzling runway shows, shop the brands, and even talk hosted by prominent figures in Dubai fashion.
Fashion Forward Dubai extends past runway ready clothing to handbag, shoe, and jewelry collections. Also, this is the first year that there will be beauty brand pop-ups at the event.
One of the chic brands gracing the fashion forward event is Mrs. Keepa. The brand was founded by the French Egyptian designer Mariam Yeya and her husband Bassel Komaty, whose nickname is Keepa, in 2016.
The brand describes itself as ready to wear meet couture. They pride themselves in mixing sustainability and wearability with glamour. Their 2021 collection has a retro-glam feel with its 80s shoulder pads and 70s flair pants. The brand use of bold florals and plaids brings the looks to life.
Next, the Egyptian handbag brand Omni’s seeks to bring the vibrancy and beauty of their culture to each bag they make. The bags are hand-crafted by Egyptian women and takes one week to create, #ByWomenForWomen.
Their bucket bags are the perfect stand-out piece for summertime. They combine bright colors, intricate beading, and delicate shells. While their stunning python mini-bags are embellished with a rhinestone bull and also use eye-catching colors. Any bag from Omni’s will create a luxurious, but bold look for the wearer.
