Fashion Forward SS17

FFWD DXB

Unfortunately, this year I only managed one day of Fashion Forward.

Dubai’s very own little fashion week came back for SS17 and Dubai’s fash pack all flocked to D3 for a week of shows, presentations, talks, #ootd snaps, networking and, of course, shopping! It’s so important in any community to support the local talent, so I couldn’t wait to see what all the regional designers had up their sleeve for us for SS17.


The Outfit…

I picked up this little playsuit in Paris, paired it with velvet boots, a dark nude lip, layers of dainty necklaces and a metallic Prada Saffiano tote. Shop the look below…

 Kage…

This was easily my favourite Kage collection to date. I’ve always been a fan of the brand but, for one reason or another, the pieces never really sat right on me, and so I’ve always just admired from afar. Well the SS17 Colours of the Rainbow collection changed that, with a flurry of cotton candy hued shirts and dresses with ruffled sleeves (yes, yes, yes!), subtle pinstripes and a loose-fitting finish – because we all know I don’t do anything body-con. I cannot wait for this Kage collection to hit the stores next season!

Kristina Fidelskaya…

Admittedly, I’d never seen or heard of Kristina Fidelskaya before, but as we had a lot of time to kill between shows, we decided to check it out. I was more than pleasantly surprised when the runway became awash with crisp white hues, lace overlays, wearable separates (from high-waisted trousers to sleeveless blazers to pencil skirts) and generally just a very pretty collection. This is definitely a brand I’ll be watching out for from now on!

Ezra…

Forever putting on a spectacle, our penultimate show of the day was Ezra. Models emerged from a futuristic-meets-industrial-like cage, held together with mesh wire and steel poles. Totally contrasting the abrasive entrance, the collection boasted an array of glamorous evening wear, with Swarovski-clad gowns and trails of tulle on billowing skirts, and couture gowns with just an air of gothic about them.

House of Nomad Presented by Reebok…

My last show of the day was House of Nomad, presented by Reebok. Despite the disorganisation (in a nutshell: they invited way too many people to this show and everyone was packed in like sardines), it was everything you’d expect from House of Nomad. Sporty influences made their way around the room to an awesome and unexpected sound track of Lady Leshurr’s Mad Ting and Queen’s Speech. Models were, of course, sporting the latest Reebok trainers, which complemented the oh so cool collection perfectly.
