Abu Dhabi Fashion Week

Abu Dhabi Fashion Week, scheduled from 15 to 18 March 2008, has been created by Maven Corporate Ltd as part of the initiatives underway to develop in the United Arab Emirates a new centre for the fashion industry in the region. In this process, Maven has formed an alliance with Camera Nazionale della Moda Italiana (the organizers of Milan Fashion Week) to develop the Abu Dhabi Fashion Week into a glamorous, business driven international event.

In a unique step for the region, the Abu Dhabi Fashion Week will form part of the international fashion calendar alongside the fashion weeks in New York, London, Milano and Paris. It will showcase the 'next wave' of designers from the SAMENA region hoping to make their mark in the international industry. Abu Dhabi Fashion week will be a professional platform for buyers to truly do business with designers from the region. It will be held at the world-renowned Emirates Palace Hotel at a custom-built venue on the shores of the Arabian Gulf.

Abu Dhabi Fashion Week will be held twice each year in Abu Dhabi, but will also offer the opportunity to Regional Designers to participate in other international Fashion Weeks (e.g. Milano Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, etc.).
