The details: VFDE 2014 announces VIP attendees to include Suzy Menkes, Lana Del Rey & more
Welcoming an all-star cast
Now in its second year, the annual Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience (VFDE) is shaping up to be something of a gem within the region's international fashion scene crown. Last year the event witnessed Vogue Italia editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani spearhead the initiative in partnership with Emaar and The Dubai Mall, and bring the likes of Donatella Versace, Roberto Cavalli, Silvia Fendi, Riccardo Tisci, Dean and Dan Caten, Peter Dundas, Philipp Plein and Naomi Campbell to the city for a series of glamorous, three-day long proceedings.
This year, VFDE II is not only providing a relevant, global platform for emerging local and global talent – showcasing 28 labels from the Middle East region plus Canada and the United Kingdom. It's also set to welome a similarly impressive guestlist to that of 12 months ago with Lana Del Rey and Lykki Li being confirmed to attend (and perhaps perform?) Buro 24/7 learned this afternoon during a private press preview of the event.
THIS YEAR WE CAN EXPECT HIGHLIGHTS TO INCLUDE VIP GUESTS SUCH AS Suzy menkes, elie saab, NANCY AJRAM, Lykki li AND LANA DEL REY
The preview, held at The Dubai Mall's exclusive Fashion Lounge, also disclosed an agenda of exciting fashion talks with industry experts, a free-to-the-public exhibition on Italian fashion at The Dubai Mall, and a conversation between Franca Sozzani and Suzy Menkes – sure to be a highlight – being revealed.
More announcements will be made in the coming days.
The Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience takes place from October 30-November 1 at The Dubai Mall, in association with Emaar and Vogue Italia
