Ramp walks and fashion presentations in the flesh are back on the radar and a big reason to celebrate. Look Up Japan, a fashion show on traditional, famous ‘Kimonos’ has added ripples to Dubai’s fashion scene. Designer Yuko Murokami hosted an exclusive fashion show at Dubai World Trade Center on September 10, blending the modern with the new in a revival of sorts for the pretty kimonos.
From voluminous dresses to wild flowers on head, the collection was nothing short of innovative as displayed on the models who walked the stage. With vintage upcycled fabric work and ruffled sleeved pieces, the innovative pieces were an ode to the Japanese culture.
The evening saw celebrities galore such as singers Ibrar Ul Haq and Azeem Dar of Pakistan, Hollywood singer Persian Dulao and the Arab ‘Michael Jackson’ Maher Alkhaja, who enthralled the audience with their electrifying performances. The dignitaries present were Sheikh Obad Bin Suhail Al Maktoum, Shiekh Buti Bin Abdulhakkim Al Maktoum, Dr Bu Abdullah, Dr Maryam Mohd Fatma Matar.
Organised by Westfield Event Management, the show was a gateway for fashionistas in Dubai to experience the Japan culture on the catwalk. The event, claimed to be region’s first Japanaese fashion show was attended by some big fashion minds like Mr Nishida, Mr Arakawa and Ms Rytsuko.
