Catwalk Chronicles: Dubai Fashion Week’s Stunning Highlights

Massive blooming flower appendages, Mughal-inspired dresses, and more were some of the visual fashion spectacles witnessed during the 5-day catwalk extravaganza known as Dubai Fashion Week.

From February 4 to 8, the Dubai Design District was the staging ground for the region’s top designers and fashion gurus, who got to present their latest collections. With so many fashion pieces dominating the stage, these are some of our favorite highlights of the special event:

Roman Ruzaini’s Mughal Empire Elegance Takes Center Stage

Fashion goes beyond taking a thread and needle to sew and stitch together unforgettable looks. It’s also the ultimate mouthpiece used to tell stories.

This year, using the magic wand of fashion design, Malaysian dynamic duo Rizman Nordin and Ruzaini Jami turned the runaway into a re-imagining of the once-powerful Mughal Empire.

Setting the stage for the entire event, Dubai Fashion Week opened with Rizman Ruzaini’s fall-winter 24/25 collection. The finest in Mughal fashion was celebrated, from Indian Kundan jewelry made of gemstones, including elaborate nose rings, to intricately embroidered metallic work on the fringes of each design.

It was a beautiful way to kick off the entire event.

Nadine Kanso’s Bil Arabi Unveils Valentine Collection In Intimate Dinner

Placing her identity and heritage at the forefront is Lebanese designer Nadine Kanso who bridged the gap between modern design and traditional Arabic calligraphy after creating her own jewelry line aptly called Bil Arabi.

As a continuation of her in-born elegance, she unveiled her highly anticipated Valentine’s collection through an elegantly laid out private dinner at Kaspia.

Fashion enthusiasts, influencers, buyers, and many more came together to immerse themselves in the magic of her meticulously crafted jewelry pieces while enjoying a delicious dinner.

Mrs. Keepa Studio’s Debut Couture Intro

Appearing in the limelight for the first time is the debut couture collection by husband and wife duo French Egyptian designer Mariam Yeya and Bassel Komaty.

The duo are the two behind Mrs. Keepa Studio, which made its mark in May 2016, and ever since then, they have been captivating audiences with their interlacing of vintage and modern era styles.

On the second day of DFW, their debut couture collection hit the stage, and black and beige dresses took over the show. 3D looks overtook the stage with black tentacle-like swirls surrounding a white dress and a looming-like hoodie over a black pantsuit.

Massive Flowers, Masks & More Take Over Humariff’s Couture Spring-Summer Collection

Allure, fantasy, and sparkle are the special fashion bundles that Humariff brought to the DFW stage. Designer Tammy Humariff, the fashion couture house known for luxurious evening gowns and wedding dresses, brought that very elegance to the DFW stage, showcasing something fresh and over-the-top for the audience.

The Humariff collection included everything from massive red flowers to masked models in elegant dresses. No dress or fashion piece was like the other, keeping the audience on their toes throughout the show.

Seven Designers, Seven Chakras Moment

Bringing something completely new to the table was Designers and Us, the luxury house based in the heart of Dubai Design district. Not one but seven designers worked on this special collection to embody the essence of the seven chakras.

Picture this, everything from the fiery nature of the Sacral (creative expression and emotion) Chakra to the tranquil blues of the Throat Chakra were presented through unique dresses and designs. It was probably the most unique show of DFW; everyone was enthralled by the creativity on the stage.

With so much that took place in merely a week, DFW showcased how much it’s a powerful and dynamic addition to the fashion week world. We cannot wait to see what the newest edition will bring.
