Apr 12, 2016
Students from Esmod Dubai will showcase an inspiring array of leather garments, handbags, and accessories at Leatherworld Middle East 2016, which will be held from 26 to 28 April in Dubai, according to a company press release.
The second year fashion students will be combining a mix of traditional techniques, leather manipulation, and cutting edge technology in their creations. 17 pieces which include jackets, suits, skirts, dresses, jumpsuits, and bags have been selected from 40 designs which will be displayed at the Fashion Avenue at the show.
Tamara Hostal, founder and CEO of Esmod Dubai, said, “All the garments have been created and realised by the students themselves who come from many different countries, which is a characteristic of Esmod Dubai. This opens a door for them to start their own leather collections in the future, whilst further positioning Dubai as the wider region’s fashion design hub.“
Ahmed Pauwels, CEO of Messe Frankfurt Middle East, the organiser of Leatherworld Middle East, said, “Our partnership with Esmod Dubai at the Fashion Avenue throws the spotlight onto the enormous potential of talented designers throughout the Middle East, and plays a vital role in furthering the ongoing development of the regional fashion design and leather creation industries. Typically students do not have a lot of opportunities to work with leather, so it is fantastic to see them present their unique interpretations of how fashion and leather go hand-in-hand, even more-so with leather supplied by some of our leading exhibitors.”
The Fashion Avenue is one of several show at Leatherworld Middle East, other features of include the Trend Area displaying an exclusive range of luxurious global leather innovations for the first time, leather production for semi-finished and finished animal hides, the Shoe Box for mid to high-end leather footwear, and the Designers’ Area, where bespoke creations will be on display.
Now in its second edition, Leatherworld Middle East 2016 has gathered wide support from leading international leather trade and tannery associations, including the French Hides Association, the French Federation of Tanners and the Trade Development Authority of Pakistan.
