A total of 12 Middle Eastern designers traveled from Dubai to Paris this Fashion Week as part of regional fashion platform Fashion Forward’s EPIC x Samsung program. Launched in August, the series of initiatives aims to continually educate, support, and empower local talent through events and the creation of business opportunities – both within and outside the region.

One of these initiatives is the Fashion Forward Showroom in Paris, which has officially opened its doors to industry insiders who are in the French capital for Fashion Week. Not only does it mean exposure for the 12 carefully curated homegrown brands, which include Bil Arabi, Kage, Hâshé, and Amira Haroon, but also increased awareness thanks to Samsung’s involvement. Indeed, showroom visitors will be able to preview the designers’ full collections and past work in real time through the latest technology, thereby enjoying a progressive experience.

Today, Savoir Flair is putting the design spotlight on four of the regional talents who are involved. Scroll through the gallery below and discover the design journeys of Rula Galayini, Andraya Farrag (of Bedouin), Orchid Ganji (of Orkalia), and Nadine Kanso (of Bil Arabi) from Dubai to Paris.
