Its a bi annual event which aims to celebrate regional fashion designers and provide them with a platform to showcase their amazing talent via fashion shows.

I kicked off season 4 with The Emperor 1688 show. The luxury label owned by 3 brothers, Babak Golkar, Haman Golkar and Farhan Golkar is known for its superior quality fabrics and crisp tailoring and design. The SS15 collection was one of the strongest collections at FFWD! 
The Golkar brothers looked specifically at colours that are synonymous with Yves Saint Laurent’s Morocco, from the blues of Le Jardin Majorelle, to the earth tones of the deserts of North Africa and the dusty tones of the summer skies. Using prints and woven fabrics that trigger a subtle memory of North African Art and Architecture.
The menswear pieces were so dapper! The womenswear pieces gave me a serious case of clothes lust. From the playful shorts suits, the gorgeous structured jackets to the chicest tailoring, silhouettes and designs. This collection definitely works for me!

MARAL believes that "life is in colors"… she has been adept in playing with colors and its hues, and their interplay has fascinated her. This is amply displayed in her collections which are bright and with rich. The effective use of a neutral white base allows the rich colors to stand out and make a statement in her entire collection. 
Her Persian roots can be witnessed, as she blends it's traditional and royal designs with a contemporary touch. The collection is created in beautiful silks with striking silhouettes. With delicate handiwork and excellent finishing, each ensemble is a work of art.

The scenario Jean-Louis Sabaji planned out this season was far from being romantic; but rather concentrated on birds, their plumage and the skin beneath all the feathers.
This is the point where an outbreak of Jean-Louis’s famous techniques in one collection which included silicone, unfinished organza, beading and braiding. It was dramatic and creative couture at its best!

Michael Cinco's SS15 collection was nothing short of dreamy, romantic and absolutely gorgeous. It included a colorful array of sheer, embellished gowns and dresses along with a few menswear pieces. The highlight of the collection were the breathtaking couture gowns and a beautiful bridal gown. 
The use of lace, floral appliques, crystal embellishments, sheer details and more dominated the collection. Loooved it!
