Arab Fashion Week has just concluded its five-day run at City Walk, Dubai. This event brings together over 20 designers from around the globe and is organised by the Arab Fashion Council, a non-profit that unites 22 Arab countries and seeks to promote the best talent and craftsmanship from the region and beyond. There is a rich seam of talent here, both established and emerging – and with wedding gowns firmly in the mix. This autumn’s shows reflected many of the trends we’ve seen on the bridal runways of Barcelona and London, especially when it comes to embellishment and high glamour.
