Fashion Trust Arabia Gala Dinner and Award Ceremony
Fashion Trust Arabia (FTA) is a non-profit initiative that aims to provide financial support, guidance, mentorship and global recognition to emerging fashion designers and talents in the MENA region.
Qatar Duty Free, the lead sponsor of the event, will exclusively offer fashionable reusable tote bags designed by world-renowned Lebanese fashion couturier Zuhair Murad. Profits from the sale of the Zuhair Murad sustainable bags will be donated towards FTA’s initiative to promote and support fashion designers and emerging talents from the MENA region.
Five winners out of 24 finalists will be chosen by the FTA jury panel. The focused categories of the competition are: evening wear, ready-to-wear, accessories (shoes/bags), jewellery (fine and fashion jewellery), and the Franca Sozzani Debut Talent Award (Arab Fashion Design Graduate). Each winner will receive a grant of up to US$200,000 and a year of invaluable business mentorship and training on sustainable practices. The winners will be announced during the Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony.
