Dubai, November 2017: Fresh from successful launches in Istanbul and London, Dubai Modest Fashion Week (DMFW) debuts on 8th – 9th December at Burj Park, Downtown Dubai. Created by Think Fashion (the founders of Modest Fashion Weeks) in association with Red Connect, the two-day event will showcase the latest modest fashion trends from an eclectic mix of established and emerging designers from across the globe. 
 
DMFW is held in partnership with Emaar Properties, modest fashion e-commerce Modanisa.com and modest fashion make-up brand Wardah Beauty. Also supported by Dubai Islamic Economy Development Centre, Thomson Reuters, premium bag label Doris Dorothea and education partner The College of Fashion Design Dubai. 
 
Why DMFW?
 
Paving the way for the modest design movement in the Middle East and beyond, the event aims to appeal to women of all backgrounds – driving the message home that dressing modest is, above all, a style choice. In recent years, gaining momentum globally, modest-wear is fast-becoming mainstream, with international designers releasing one-off collections during Ramadan and Eid and a growing number of labels launching a modest range as part of their annual collections. Modest Fashion Weeks are now recognised as working towards coining the term “Modest Fashion” and as being a key contributor in building hype around modest fashion industry across the globe. 
 
What’s happening at DMFW?
 
The action-packed DMFW roster will include 30 fashion shows from 5 continents, 60 brand booths, interactive workshops, and talks, plus fashion and art exhibitions. As well as the Emerging Modest Fashion Designer Award where one budding modest designer will showcase their collections on the runway and win an editorial with a prestigious fashion publication, as well as chance to sell the collection online. Talk schedule highlights include ‘From Nike to the Cover of Vogue- Why Representation Matters’ and ‘Fashion Activism, Use your Platform for Good’ - while art exhibitions offer immersive works from award-wining artists, photographers and film makers hailing from Europe to the GCC. 
 
Starting with a spectacular opening ceremony and exclusive show, the weekend will see renowned brands and designers take to the DMFW runway. On Friday 8th December, style fans can check out live shows from Huw Roman – Japan’s leading modest fashion designer, prestigious leather handbag label Doris Dorothea, iconic modest label Fllumae-USA, one-to-watch Sumayya & SSS from Indonesia and renowned German-designer Meriem Lebdiri with her brand Mizaan. 
 
On Saturday 9th December, famous Kuwaiti brand, Anotah will hit the catwalk, as well as India’s first abaya designer Murcyleen Peerzada, contemporary ready-to-wear Malaysian label  Aere and luxury Australian-based brand Anjilla Seddeqi. The final day will also host an exclusive Wardah Beauty Show featuring an array of favoured modest designers worldwide; Etu, Ria Miranda, Norma Hauri, Zaskia Sungkar and Vogue Arabia’s ‘Modest Muse’ Dulce by Safiya Abdallah (UAE). 
 
Who’s behind DMFW?
 
“Modest fashion has its own talents, stars, market and capital cities, we created the event series to bring authentic modest fashion to the mainstream. After Istanbul and London, we consider Dubai the center for modest fashion in the GCC, and this December we can’t wait to celebrate modest fashion designers from around the world in this truly innovative city.” comments Franka Soeria, co-founder Modest Fashion Weeks (Istanbul-London-Dubai) and co-creator of Think Fashion.
