DUBAI: Asian communities residing in Dubai and neighbouring Emirates are gearing up to be part of a day-long exhibition where a number of housewives from Pakistani, Indian and other communities will showcase their creations in fashion, jewellery designing and arts and crafts.
The event named Grand Fashion Bazaar will celebrate two major festivals — Eid and Diwali — and will be held at the Grand Excelsior Hotel in Bur Dubai on Oct.11.
The event will be organised by prominent Pakistani couple Mohammed Nizam and his wife Ayesha Nizam.
The duo had organised their solo event ‘Spring Bonanza’ a couple of months ago after setting up likeminded peoples’ group on social media and received a huge turn out.
Talking to The Gulf Today, Nizam said that the motive behind this event is only to promote the hidden skills of housewives in Dubai.
“There are a large number of housewives settled in Dubai who have been educated and trained in different skills prior to their marriages but after tying the knot they just tend to their families and get no opportunities to showcase their talent. Like our previous event, this event is solely to promote and encourage all such housewives to showcase their skills in front of a bigger audience and be recognised,” he said.
The organisers are planning to bring prominent fashion designers from India and Pakistan who will not only showcase their creations in the exhibition but also share their knowledge and experience with the participating designers.
The designers who are expecting to take part in the Grand Fashion Bazaar include Knack Kreations of Chandigarh, Anum Fashions Mumbai, Iquera Couture Islamabad, Nonu Sana of Royal Style Boutique for ladies and Sherry and Aijaz Aslam from Karachi.
“Dubai is a unique place where people from every corner of the world reside and the fashion designers and their creations especially in dresses, jewellery, footwear are getting huge attention. Our guests designers will be a great opportunity for housewives to learn various skills of marketing, networking and exhibition through the experience of famous designers from Pakistan and India,” Ayesha added.
She added that there are many housewives settled in Dubai and other Emirates like Sharjah and Ajman who regularly organise exhibitions on a small scale either in their houses or community centres.
“Exhibitions like ours is one of the biggest where all such housewives will be giving prominent display space on affordable fee to promote their skills in fashion designing, jewellery designing and other skills in art and crafts category,” she added.
The organisers are expecting to set up more than 100 stalls where visitors from different communities will have a chance to see and buy the products.
