Dubai has become a little bit of a fashion paradise, providing the ultimate fashion vacay with it’s rich culture, mind-blowing architecture and the Dubai mall which has no doubt caused many a headache for the accountants of those lucky enough to shop there. It comes as no surprise that Vogue Italia chose this Middle Eastern Mecca as a host for the annual Vogue Dubai Fashion Experience which is organised by Vogue Italia in collaboration with The Dubai Mall and the Dubai Design and Fashion Council. This 2 day celebration of emerging and high-end fashion and lifestyle events begins today and will feature the first edition of ‘Who Is On Next Dubai?’, a contest that aims to scout the best emerging designers from the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
