With Dubai becoming a one-stop-shop for global fashion executives as well as an important platform for global product launches and marketing events, being a part of Fashion Forward Dubai, is the perfect launch pad for our budding design talent.’’
The talent networking platform, after a strenuous round of auditions, has selected two designers, along with co-founder Nikhil Hegde who will also be showcasing at FFWD 2017. The talented designers selected include Amrapali Singh and Vedika Merh.
Known for her brand Birdwalk, Amrapali Singh will display a femininely elegant collection drawing inspiration from art, nature and dance. The brand is an amalgamation of flowy silhouettes and earthy hues combined with hand paintings and intricate embroidery detailing. No matter what is in trend, high-end sophisticated and elegant couture will never fail to impress. Faithfully sticking to the monochrome palate, this brand is soaring high, keep an eye out for them at this year’s FFWD!
