Dubai Fashion Week A/W 09

Dubai Fashion Week A/W 2009 took place 5th-9th April 2009. The event brought together a variety of local creative talent, showcasing kaftans, evening dresses, abayas and more. There are often a lot of modestly-inclined designs, but the website is notorious for taking ages to put up the runway photos. I've managed to find a few, but do check out this brilliant slideshow from The National which has images for all the designers. My favourite this time round I think has to be Amal Murad's designs for Redaa. Maybe it's Brit thing, but the tartan prints on the abayas just look so chic!

Day 1: Royal Rickshaw

This company specialises in glamorous kaftans; I adore this first faded pink number:

Day 2: Mimi Fashion Designs

Mariam Al-Mazro of Mimi Fashion Designs also took part in the last edition of DFW back in October. Her designs still follow a similar theme of bright panelled full length dresses, but she's expanded into tunics as well as more conventional evening gowns:
