Meet d3, a multi-sensory design, music, art, and food showcase, was created by the Dubai Design District (d3) to introduce the world to the creative design talent of the UAE and to give global talent a regional platform. The district will play host to fashion exhibitions, mind-blowing installations, pop-up dining experiences, and a full line-up of music entertainment. With so many options to choose from over the three-day event, dressing appropriately can be a bit of a challenge, but Savoir Flair has the scoop on what to wear when and where.

If You’re Heading to Meet d3 for the Art and Fashion…
Experiment with denim. Not only has it made a roaring comeback in fashion, but it is also one of your wardrobe’s most versatile pieces. Up the ante by opting for high-waisted jeans in cropped lengths. Preppy fashion is a great angle for styling your high-waisted jeans, or you can embrace a more bohemian look by pairing them with a fringed cape and low-heeled pumps.
