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.
