In addition, AFW is the only official fashion week in the world for promoting the Ready-Couture and Pre-Collections which defines the international industry scene of luxury fashion in Dubai and the Arab World.
As every year catwalks collections will be divided into Prêt-à-porter, Haute Couture, “Ready Couture” and the Resort Collection. The Arab Fashion Week is the only one that hosts the Ready Couture collection. This model could be considered the perfect mix between high luxury and affordability. FW is the world’s only platform that pioneers the concept of Ready-Couture. After its success, the AFW paves its way to celebrate Dubai as the capital for Pre-Collections.
As Paris Fashion Week is the Haute Couture powerhouse, the Arab Fashion Week aims to be the benchmark of the Ready-Couture as well a perfect destination for Pre-Collections happenings.
