“Fashion still remains the main thing”, he said, while making it clear that the awards will not steal spotlight from the main reason the event has been put up.
“We already have designers from around the world warming up for the event which is almost here and we are working so hard to get things going the way they are supposed to be. We also have classic runway models on ground as well as others that will be coming in from other countries to grace the event.
“Dubai will witness a confluence of global fashion designers and models and it will surely be an unforgettable experience”, he said.
The United Nations Ambassador also added that there is nothing like a point of reference for the designers and everyone will be operation in an atmosphere ruled by freedom, creativity and fashion.
“It’s not a showcase of dinner wears, seasonal wears or cultural wears. It is a showcase of freedom, creativity and fashion. We expect to see something and everything because I see designers coming with their culture, style and fresh creations.
“For me, I want awesomeness and nothing more”, he concluded.
