Over the past few years, the concept of fashion in Dubai has been undergoing rapid changes. With the proliferation of International brands, and a plethora of designers making their entry into the gulf, Dubai has been transformed into a retailer’s paradise. This scenario is only poised for further growth and expansion, given the large influx of global visitors and changing consumer tastes and preferences. One of the catalysts for promoting such a rapid growth and interest in the fashion scenario in Dubai is the organisation of exhibitions and events. These events provide the platform for many international and local design houses to display their collections.
