“My Fashion Fest” has opened its first edition in Dubai, on April 17, 2016 at the H Hotel (Ballroom, Sheikh Zayed Road) and featured the latest in couture designers from Romania.
The fashion show primarily showcased designers specializing in couture; each of the five participating designers has showcased her top six best designs. In addition to being a unique opportunity for talented fashion designers, the event had spotlighted the finest in upcoming local makeup artists, hair stylists and striking runway models.
The five designers participating were: Tina Olari, Elena Nita, Luminita Balazs, Anca Manea and Bianca Rusu. “We are very excited to have these designers in Dubai. They are extremely talented and have already created a name for themselves in Europe. It is time for the UAE customers to have the chance to know and meet them as well”, said Ana Maria Mandai, the initiator of the project.
“The star of the show is Tina Olari, the official designer of Miss World 2015, Mireia Lalaguna Royo. Tina surprised us and brought along the dress worn by Mireia at the coronation ceremony in December 2015. The dress has been displayed for the last time during an event. After My Fashion Fest Dubai, it will be returned to Spain where it had been donated to a museum and will remain there.”
The concept of this exciting event was to create a extravagant environment to enjoy a top-of-the-line runway show and have the opportunity to place orders and interact with the designers.
Boutiques, specialty fashion buyers for designer to high-end fashion, fashion representatives, selected VIP’s, socialites and corporate sponsors have found the event enjoyable and beneficial.
