Fashion Fantasia was the first event of it’s kind in Abu Dhabi! TheFashSet in correspondence with Al Khawarizimi International College, held a one day fashion soiree which was to give aspiring designers and fashion students a platform to showcase their talent while creating an inspirational environment for collaboration, growth and future opportunities alike! This event was to shed light on the fashion entrepreneurial scene in Abu Dhabi.
The event included:
1) 18 local fashion designers who showcased their beautiful designs: this included apparel – both women’s ready-to-wear and abayas, jewelry, handbags and array of other accessories.
2) Hands-on fashion workshops conducted by the fashion design students from Al Khawarizmi International College. The workshops conducted were: Fashion Illustration, Textile Design, Patternmaking & Drafting, and Sewing.
3) There were fashion seminars given by industry professionals in the region. Seminar topics included: Image Consulting & Personal Styling, The Art of Fashion Blogging, Creative Branding, Fashion Entrepreneurship, The Fashion Design Program at KIC, and Life of a Fashion Student…Breaking into the Business.
In addition to these, Fashion Fantasia had a nail station where ladies could get their nails done, as well as a hair and make-up station where ladies could be pampered and beautified! As well, there were sweet treats going around and everyone seemed merry!
