DBWC to host Arab fashion show
Dubai, October 21, 2012
Dubai Business Women Council (DBWC) will be hosting an exclusive fashion show on Tuesday (October 23) featuring the latest creations of Randa Salamoun, one of the most successful fashion designers in the Middle East.
The event is being organised in collaboration with Balsam Al Khalil, the chief representative-UAE & Gulf Region for Bank of Beirut and a member of DBWC, at the Harayer/Salsabeel Room, Al Bustan Rotana Hotel in Dubai.
The fashion show will parade 50 pieces from Salamoun’s latest collection, which had been recently shown privately during the Paris Fashion Week and will be showcased for the first time in the Arab world.
Another highlight of the show will Salamoun’s ready-to-wear “Pearl” collection S/S 2013, along with 10 Haute Couture pieces, including bridal and henna dresses.
Commenting on the show, DBWC president Raja Al Gurg said Randa Salamoun had been a huge inspiration for many aspiring fashion designers in the Arab world.
"She is widely acclaimed for her creations that transcend geographical and national boundaries to reach international women. Her achievements and her celebrated status have therefore helped generate strong interest and attention to the creativity and huge potential of Arab women, particularly in the world of fashion," she remarked.
In addition to her Haute Couture line and ready-to-wear collections, Salamoun has also created the ethnic-inspired “Ishtar” collection, which draws inspiration from many cultures and includes day wear and casual Abaya, and the Home Collection, which specializes in high-end bridal trousseau and delivery suits.
Salamoun’s creations have headlined several international fashion shows in Rome, Paris, Russia and most of the Arab world.
Salamoun said: “The DBWC has taken several significant steps that have helped boost the participation of women in the social and economic development of the Arab world. Like DBWC, I am equally passionate about encouraging Arab women to become successful leaders and professionals in our society."
"It is therefore an honour for me to be part of this project, which I consider a tribute to the accomplishments of Arab women across different fields of expertise. Moreover, this will also be a very special event for me being the first-ever presentation of my latest creations in the Arab world," she added.-TradeArabia News Service
