Fashion enthusiasts, modest-wear aficionados, influencers, families and aspiring designers, gathered for a modest fashion extravaganza during the 15th Heya Arabian Fashion Exhibition or Heya 15, which convened for five days at the Doha Exhibition and Convention Centre.
The event showcased 250 brands from 11 different countries and concluded in style with a grand finale awards presentation.
The awards acknowledge the efforts of exhibitors across two main categories: the Visitor’s Choice Awards and the Exhibitor’s Choice Awards. These awards went to Debaj and Tahani Al Otaibi respectively, for their outstanding contribution to Heya 15.
Mashal Shahbik from Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC), said they are delighted with the success of the 15th Heya Arabian Fashion Exhibition and the attendance it has drawn. She congratulated the winners of the Heya award and thanked all exhibitors and organisers.
We constantly strive to diversify Qatar’s calendar of events and enrich it in a way that showcases Qatar as a destination that provides curated experiences. We look forward to sharing with our audiences, whether visitors or residences, the experiences in store for the summer.’
Heya 15 displayed the latest collections of abayas, kaftans, jalabiyas, evening gowns and haute couture, veils and other accessories, as well as perfumery and make-up. But beyond the exhibition of the trendiest modest wear fashion, Heya’s schedule featured workshops and forums that drew huge crowds seeking knowledge, guidance and inspiration on the fashion industry both in Doha and abroad. The workshops covered everything from make-up tutorials and beauty tips to design-related topics such as running a business in fashion, textiles, and even sustainable fashion.
