Middle Eastern Fashion: An Identity in the Making- Panel Discussion

I was off to a fresh start at Day 2 of Fashion Forward and was ready for as much fashion dosage as I could get! It was hard to limit myself to a few number of shows and panel discussions as I had baby duty as well, but better some than none at all eh! I go to attend the Middle Eastern Fashion: Identity in the Making panel discussion which was very interesting and they tapped on to a lot of interesting points.  I wish I got the chance to bring up the point of modest/conservative fashion for the majority of women in our region; next time.

Sitting front row at my friend Dima Ayad’s show was surreal! I was so proud seeing her achieve her dreams.  She is the perfect example of how you can have a day job and pursue your dreams.  It takes a lot of hard work but its all worth the sweat.   Toujouri was a beautiful label to see emerge from our region, with stockists all over the world.  Lama is a great inspiration and an example to young designers on how you can make it internationally.  Michel Cinco’s gowns were haute couture beauties.  Each and every piece were jaw dropping beautiful creations.  The intricate details, crystals and work was exquisite.  We are so lucky to have such talented designers in our region.

Hope you enjoy my mini intros of Fashion Forward Daily summaries.  Did you attend? If so, which shows did you get to see? What was your experience like?
