APLF and ESMOD Dubai join hand to promote leather to young designers

The French Fashion Institute in Dubai, ESMOD, will be APLF’s institutional partner in Dubai, to work together in raising the aware of students and young designers about the leather and fashion industry, as well as enriching their knowledge in this field of work.


Through providing a display area on 13-15 March 2023 at the Dubai World Trade Centre, APLF Dubai will offer their ESMOD Dubai’s students valuable opportunities to connect and place a foot onto the business platform. Students will be able to showcase their product sketches, and leather garments, including those using camel leather during the APLF event.  


In addition, onsite workshops are available for ESMOD Dubai designers. The workshops will be conducted by one of the ESMOD  DUBAI professors – Maurizio Lacopini, Footwear Maker, who worked with popular brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Alberto Guardiani and Aldo Brue, and designed several luxury shoes for prominent figures, including Michelle Obama, Jenni Kayne, and Jessica Alba. 


With both parties’ strong engagement and dedication to the fashion industry, as well as our collective effort in the integration between the education and business sectors, the partnership will certainly become a key element in supporting and boosting the development of the Dubai Fashion Industry. 


About APLF

We bring leather, material and fashion businesses together: an opportunity to meet and greet face to face. We bring them from all parts of the world so that they can find fresh partners, discover new customers or suppliers and keep ahead of industry developments.


We organise a number of trade exhibitions which focus on fashion and lifestyle: sectors that are constantly in flux, so visitors and exhibitors alike need to be constantly aware both of the changes around them and those forecast for coming seasons.
