Shop regional talent from the Fashion Forward Dubai runways in store now

Dubai, UAE, September 17, 2016:   Galeries Lafayette buyers have carefully curated a Fall/Winter '16 selection from Fashion Forward Season 7 designers to feature in the third FFWD Pop Up Store. Coveted runway looks and accessories are available to purchase at Galeries Lafayette until October 24th 2016 in the Womenswear department, 1st floor, The Dubai Mall. 

Following the success of the second retail partnership in March 2016, Galeries Lafayette has joined forces with FFWD for a third consecutive season, selecting designers who have previously showcased at the bi-annual event, as part of the fashion platform's recently launched EPICxSAMSUNG program. The Pop Up is one of the first activations to take place in EPIC's schedule. The renowned department store, located in the largest mall in the Middle East, provides the ideal location for FFWD's designers to attain customer visibility which is a prominent challenge faced by regional designers, and one which EPIC aims to address. 

“We are thrilled to be collaborating for yet another season with Fashion Forward. The positive results of our previous alliances further cement our belief in the vision that both Galeries Lafayette and Fashion Forward carry. A vision of nurturing and growing local and regional talent towards a more creative and developed Fashion community” said Pascal Abchee, General Manager of Galeries Lafayette.

The labels available at the FFWD Pop Up Store in Galeries Lafayette are:
