This weekend I spent my time to attend Fashion Forward season 5, 2015 in Dubai. I was expecting to see the creativities of young designers then I found several of them were very interesting and made me stare longer. Several designs were simple but showed slightly different in details. Talking about trends, It seems fashionistas, especially ladies in UAE are facing a bigger choices than ever before. Either in color combinations, style and accesories. Between the show I also attended one of the fashion talk which shared some informations of window display in digital era. Generally the shows in FF season 5 were interesting, however the lightings in some shows were quite disturbing that faded away the colors during the fashion shows.
Get a closer look at some pictures that I took.

Beside the races and horses, fashion is one of very interesting thing in Dubai World Cup. On 28th March,2015 I had another chance to attend the Dubai World Cup and the Jaguar Style stakes. Dress to impress is all part of the event itself. There are several requirements of fashion in this event, such as should be elegant, respectful and stylish. Especially if attendees want to join the Jaguar Style Stakes.
There were hundreds of fashion-concious competed for the top honours at the Jaguar Style Stakes, the British luxury carmaker that has been hosting this event for the past five years. The fashion contestants were adjudged by an exceptional panel of judges from Jaguar representative, desainers and stylish from UAE, Dom Bagnato (senior designer from Australia) and Aaron Kwok (singer,actor & Longines ambassador of elegance). The categories were Best dress lady, Best Hat, Most creative hat, Best dress man, Best dress couple and Most elegant lady.
This year I had the opportunity to join two categories, Best hat and Best dress lady. It took me three weeks to decide and then modified my fascinator by myself. I didn’t expect much as there were so many unique and beautiful headpieces in the arena, some were designed by top millineries designers , but surprisingly panel of judges chose my hat as one of Best Hat finalist on Jaguar Style Stakes 2015.
Regarding the competitions, I loved seeing loads of creativities in that arena.
