The Egyptian Fashion & Design Council (EFDC) announced last Tuesday, March 21st, the launch of the first and official Egypt Fashion Week (EFW) titled: “Past, Present & Future”.
Taking place from May 12-15, 2023, EFW will celebrate Egypt’s rich heritage, civilization, culture and future – a vision and direction that combines years of inspiration, craftsmanship and resources that allows Egypt to be recognized as a formidable player in the industry.
“Inspired by the rising number of emerging designers and growth of the local fashion industry, we knew the time had come to show the world our pool of creative talents and local cotton and textile industry. Egypt Fashion Week has been almost four years in the making, but this is what it took to be 100% sure that we will deliver an event that will hold its par with established and recognized fashion weeks around the globe and impress our Egyptian and our international guest that includes distinguished fashion industry leaders and media,” shares Susan Sabet, EFDC co-founder, during the press launch.
The event will kick off with an opening night on May 12th at the Egyptian Museum, featuring the “Best of Egyptian Designers” fashion show followed by a gala dinner.
A number of panel talks by local, regional and international fashion industry leaders in the fields of design, education, craftsmanship, production, retail, sustainability, women empowerment, and finance will coincide during the 3-day event, with distinguished guests and influential speakers.
