Arab Fashion Week opened Thursday with hopes of establishing Dubai as a top destination for the "ready couture" genre and as a major fashion capital.The fashion week opened with a "ready couture" collection for women from Emirati designer Lamya Abedin in the first of more than 20 Spring/Summer 2017 collections from more than 10 countries.The form follows in the footsteps of limited ready-to-wear collections that can be customized, from famous fashion houses Roberto Cavalli and Dolce & Gabbana, he said.AFC spokeswoman Daline Eluar said the group "aims to strengthen the role of the UAE, through Dubai, to become the fifth international fashion capital alongside New York, London, Paris and Milan". The fashion week seeks to show the world that the Arab region is not just "war and conflicts" but also "creativity, art and beauty," she said.However, much remains to be done, Abrian said, as customers still trust Western designers over their Arab peers.
