New scheduling puts Dubai Fashion Week first-up ahead of New York, London, Milan and Paris fashion weeks, strengthening Dubai’s global visibility and buyers attendance

The upcoming Dubai event was announced through an eye-catching billboard in Times Square in New York as the city continues its surge onto the global fashion stage.

The third edition of the region’s definitive fashion showcase is set to take place from 4-8 February 2024, returning to its residence at d3’s global creative ecosystem by TECOM Group PJSC.

The upcoming Dubai programme will set the tone for the season as it leads the way next month.


Khadija Al Bastaki, Senior Vice President of Dubai Design District (d3), part of TECOM Group, said: “The world is really beginning to see the incredible talent, creativity, diversity and opportunity that Dubai offers the global fashion industry. In October, we set the bar for excellence high, and we are determined to follow up each edition with more outstanding, innovative and inspiring collections than the one before.

“We are moving our Autumn/Winter dates forward to be among the early birds in the global fashion calendar, ensuring our designers can attract and engage potential buyers and investors earlier in the fiscal year. Our commitment remains to nurture a prolific fashion ecosystem in Dubai and the wider region, providing designers from Dubai, the region, and beyond with a gateway to new markets, opportunities, and audiences.”


Mohammed Aqra, Chief Strategy Officer of the Arab Fashion Council, said starting the year will be a great advantage for the city which is now the region’s fashion and culture hub: “By shifting the dates, we position ourselves strategically before New York Fashion Week, creating an optimal window for global visibility and buyers attendance.”

Fashion enthusiasts and investors alike can look forward to exclusive events, a curated showroom, capsule launches, brand activations taking place at the iconic d3. Located next to the Dubai Mall and Downtown Dubai, it has become a highlight of the Dubai calendar for professionals and fashionistas alike.
