On Thursday, October 10th, Dubai Mall will host the first Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience (VFDE). The evening, in conjunction with Vogue Italia, will see the first time such a massive fashion-focused event will take place in Dubai.
The event reminds me of Vogue’s Fashion Night Out, which takes place in cities across the globe. It’s an evening when stores and brands host special in-store activations for an evening of fashion-filled festivities.
VFDE promises to be no different, with the evening promising late-night glamour as Dubai Mall extends its shopping hours especially for the event. VFDE will include fashion shows, exhibitions, interactive events, celebrity appearances and, of course, plenty of shopping – get those credit cards ready!. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this night will go to Dubai Cares, giving this night of fashion a humanitarian purpose.
As part of this evening’s festivity, Level Shoe District is hosting a massive evening cutely titled #LetTheShoeBegin. Firstly, five designers, Alberto Moretti, Paul Andrew, Rupert Sanderson, Louis Leeman and Edgardo Osorio of Aquazurra, have been selected to design show-stopping limited edition t-shirts to be sold during the ‘Let the Shoe Begin’ extravaganza. Additionally, some of your favorite shoe designers will be attending including two of my favorites, Edgardo Osorio of Aquazzura and Vogue Fashion Fund winner, Nicholas Kirkwood!
And all of this wasn’t enough, entertainment will be provided courtesy of DJ and fashion sensation Solange Knowles. Solange is known for impeccable and risk-taking red carpet style so I can’t wait to see how she turns up to the event.
So ladies and fellow shoe addicts, mark your calendar as this will be an evening not to miss!
