The last day of Arab Fashion Week Women’s kicks off with messages of Peace and Unity. Sustainability and ethical fashion continue to take center stage on the catwalk of Dubai Design District. Arab Fashion Week closes with record numbers and a palpable boost to the local economy.
The designer share: “We need humanity, more than cleverness… life will be violent, and all will be lost” read the screen at Emergency Room’s “Borderline” show. With a name that stems from the belief that the world needs to drastically change its wasteful ways, the Beirut-based sustainable, and ethically focused brand portrayed a united world where flags are obsolete. On the runway, a series of white pieces, hand printed with various visa stamps represented the different countries designer Eric Mathieu Ritter and his team have visited. Elsewhere, the collection focused on pairing up-cycled denim with white cotton and mish-mashing sports jerseys, knitted sports scarves, and polyester flags, to usher in the upcoming World Cup.
