BLSSD – DFW MEMBER
Beirut-born label BLSSD marked its first show as an official DFW Member yesterday with a ‘backstage’ experiential warehouse presentation of its Autumn/Winter ‘Disclaimer’ collection.
Guests were invited into an immersive experience where backstage was turned into center stage.The brand’s creative approach blurred the lines between creator and spectator, giving everyone a taste of fashion week action where models prepared and posed for a live lookbook shoot for all to see.
The street-luxe label’s new Autumn/Winter ‘Disclaimer’ collection continued to explore the brand’s signature and daring approach to design, balancing minimalist influences with innovative folds, zipper waistbands, and handcrafted vegan leather sequins, reflecting the brand’s bold disclaimer against predefined identities and stereotypes in fashion. While celebrating individuality and self-expression through distinctive designs that defy categorization.
Globally renowned Spanish fashion house Adolfo Domínguez took to the DFW runway for the first time to unveil its much-anticipated Spring / Summer 2024 collection, ‘Intuición: beyond the senses.’ A departure from traditional definitions of contemporary fashion, the collection evoked spontaneity and freshness through a palette of neutral tones, lightweight fabrics, and chic, flattering silhouettes – staples of the label’s craftsmanship. The pieces transitioned from day to night, an ode to Domínguez’s commitment to sustainability and creating lasting, timelessly elegant pieces.
DESIGNERS & US
Designers & Us drew the curtains on the autumn / winter edition of DFW with its ‘Enlight’ collection, a fusion of mystical energy and style designed to resonate with a deeper, spiritual dimension. Seven designers came together to embody the essence of the seven chakras of the human body. Each design reflected the unique energy of its corresponding chakra – from the fiery nature of the Sacral (creative expression and emotion) Chakra to the tranquil blues of the Throat Chakra. Each creation – through its threads, colours and style – reflected power, vitality and emotion, and explored the spiritual realms of the human body.
THREADS TALK 2.0
The final Threads Talk 2.0 of the season took place yesterday at d3, organised by META and the Arab Fashion Council. Industry professionals from around the world once again converged at the insightful event, where experts discussed the opportunities, challenges and insights currently defining the global fashion industry.
