Fashion is the outermost layer of the human spirit; Middle East Fashion Week exemplifies the innate drive we all have, to express ourselves and celebrate the many gradients of individuality. President and Cofounder of Middle East Fashion Week, Dr. Antonio Rubel personifies this in a way few can. Internationally recognized and locally lauded as the pulse of Dubai Fashion events, Middle East Fashion Week represents the culmination of his support and patronage to the Middle Eastern fashion scene. Fashion shows, Galas, private events, and exclusive offerings come together to create an experience second to none. Middle East Fashion Week captures the spirit of Dubai, where luxury is second nature and inspiration is the bedrock on which the city stands.
