Alexa Chung cancels Dubai appearance

British TV presenter, former model and fashion “it girl” Alexa Chung has pulled out of her appearance at this season’s Fashion Forward just three day before the event, according to a statement by organisers.

Chung, who is also a British Vogue contributing editor, was scheduled to do hold a panel with attendees on Saturday at 3pm to discuss her journey in the fashion world but had to cancel “due to unforeseen obligations”, the statement said.

She was described last year by American Vogue as, “a style bombshell who flattens the best efforts of any American counterpart with the indescribable force of her courageous chic”.

Fashion Forward will host back-to-back Fashion Talks by the likes of Fern Mallis – founder of New York Fashion Week - and catwalk shows that will include names such as Essa, Tahir Sultan and The Emperor 1688.

The Garden, a pop up shop housing over 70 accessories designers, also makes a comeback, giving members of the public the opportunity to snap up jewellery, shoes and bags from across the region.

The event will start on April 10 at Madinat Jumeirah.
