In a year of big fashion shifts, Dubai’s fashion blogging scene has been quietly taking off in a way it has never done before.
The latest trend, dubbed “The Dubai Fashion Bloggers Conference,” was announced by the Dubai Fashion Institute last week.
The conference is part of a $10 million effort to make the city a fashion destination of the future, as well as showcase Dubai’s leading fashion bloggers.
Dubai’s fashion scene has long been on the back of its heels.
The city has seen its own version of the rise of “the new hipster,” as the fashion industry shifted from the “trendy and the cool” to the “artful and the creative.”
The “hipster chic” trend is gaining popularity in the U.S., with a slew of high-profile brands like Gap, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, Burberry and Zara now launching in the UAE.
But for many, the Dubai fashion industry has never been quite the same.
Dubailand, a country of around 1.6 million people, has been a model for the UAE, with the country hosting some of the world’s most prominent fashion designers.
However, Dubai has never had the same depth of talent in the fashion community as the rest of the UAE has.
In fact, the region has a tiny amount of designers and fashion bloggers on its roster, compared to the top 10 countries in the world, according to research firm eMarketer.
But now, with more and more people moving to the country, Dubai is on the cusp of becoming the next “fashion capital of the West,” as Forbes magazine puts it.
In the past, Dubai was known for being an “unofficial fashion hub” and the city had an image of being a place that could only be achieved through “the world’s best designers and brands.”
However, with an influx of new designers and retailers, the fashion scene is on a steady upward trajectory.
The Dubai Fashion Festival (DFF), an annual fashion show that takes place in the city’s Marina Bay, has seen the growth of the Dubai-inspired fashion scene in the past year.
In addition to the fashion bloggers and fashion celebrities, the DFF also features a variety of international fashion celebrities such as Mimi Martens, Victoria Beckham, Miley Cyrus and Kim Kardashian.
And while there are a few bloggers and designers in the Dubai region who have been busy working on their own fashion blogs, most of them have only been around for a few years.
The rest of their lives have been devoted to traveling the world and getting back to the UAE as soon as possible.
Dublin, on the other hand, has a vibrant fashion scene, with a strong presence of local and international designers.
The Fashion Institute has been working hard to create an environment that encourages people to take part in the industry and support the creative talents of its bloggers.
“We are excited to launch the Dubai Dubai Fashion Magazine, the first ever magazine from the Dubai Tourism and Investment Authority, which will provide an opportunity for our young female bloggers to showcase their talents and learn from the likes of Mimi, Aaliyah and Meej.
This will give them a platform for spreading their skills and showcasing their own unique style,” said Mariam Khan, the head of the DAFI.”
The magazine will showcase all the latest trends, new and established designers, as it will showcase the best of the fashion in the region,” she added.
Dubail, in the heart of Dubai, has always been a hotbed of fashion.
In 2008, the country was awarded a prestigious award in the prestigious International Fashion Design Awards.
The event featured the best international designers in their respective fields.
In 2014, the DTF announced a plan to establish a new fashion institute, which would focus on developing talent in Dubai.
The DTF hopes to bring the talents of fashion bloggers to the city to help promote the industry.
According to DAF, the new institute will focus on four areas: the digital space, marketing, education and the business side.
The institute will also offer the Dubai’s designers a platform to showcase and promote their skills to the public.
“This will be the first time in the history of Dubai that a fashion blog will have a dedicated digital space.
The new institute is designed to provide our young bloggers with the support to showcase themselves in the most interesting way, and to make Dubai their home,” said Khan.
The new fashion blog is expected to launch later this year.
