Nancy Ajram to headline Dubai fashion event

Fashion Victims will return for its second season on April 3rd at the Atlantis Palm Jumeirah.

The event will host Lebanese singer and Arab music icon Nancy Ajram, while labels that will showcase their collections include Sorapol, Math Collective, Joshua Fenu, Taibo Bacar, Sponsa, Canella Hostal and Am1ra of ESMOD fashion school in Dubai.

“Fashion Victims is all about recognising local and international talent and we are very honored to have Nancy Ajram, one of the most celebrated artists in the region grace our event to support this initiative,” said George Kanoun, CEO of the event’s organiser, Babylon Marketing and Events.

In addition, Fashion Victims will host three different workshops from 11:30am to 2:30pm.

The first workshop will be held by ESMOD, and will walk the audience through the evolution of fashion during different stages in history. It will explain fashion studies and how online learning has changed fashion education.

The duo will consult young designers and guests on how to grow brands internationally, as both Mohayudin and Woollams have frequently participated in London Fashion Week.

Apart from his collection, Mohayudin will showcase his new luxury concept, Mr. Lenoir/MAVRO, in collaboration with French footballer Djbril Cisse.

The UK-based design house, Sorapol, will showcase its Autumn Winter collection and Grand Soir collection.
