fashion forward 2015What is Fashion Forward? Concluding it’s fifth season this year, Fashion Forward (or FFWD) is a platform for topnotch designers of the Middle East region to showcase their talent.

The catwalk was ablaze all weekend with show-stopping creations by the Middle East’s finest designers, many debuting for the first time round. Each lent a different element of drama to the show. From folklore and fairytales, to new-age symmetry and grunge, FFWD Season 5 was a feast for the eyes.
