'The Art of Being Intimate' for Swarovski Young Designer Awards
Apr '08
Ten local amateur fashion designers and ten fashion students have been short-listed to win the Swarovski Young Designer Awards, presented by The Bride Show Dubai. Each year the Swarovski Young Designer Awards helps propel inspiring fashion designers into the spotlight, annually pushing contestants to their creative limits. This year's theme, 'The Art of Being Intimate' will be used as a source of inspiration for each finalists' wedding dress creation.

The amateur contestants fare from around the Emirates, consisting of six female designers and four men. Ten fashion students have been short-listed from five different fashion schools, including Mahe Manipal Dubai, Pearl Design Centre, Centre for Executive Education, The French Fashion University ESMOD International, and Preston University Ajman.

Khadija Al-Lamki, winner of the amateur category of the Swarovski Young Designer Awards 2007, said the recognition has helped propel her fashion career. “This was an amazing opportunity for me to show my fashion talent and gain recognition for it,” she said. “I have had an amazing year since winning the award and have embarked on my career as a fashion designer with great success. I am so happy I decided to enter the contest and my hard work definitely paid off.”

On the final day of The Bride Show Dubai, the largest bridal exhibition in the Middle East, the designs will be modelled on the catwalk by professional models and assessed by a panel of judges formed by eminent personalities in the fashion industry in the UAE. The winners in the amateur and the student categories will be announced in front of hundreds of people and flashing cameras.
