After an amazing amount of effort and 8 successful seasons in a row, Cairo Festival City Mall presents Cairo Fashion Festival (CFF) season 9 brought to you by “OPPO the selfie expert and leader”. The serial of events will start on the 16th and run until the 22nd of November 2017, with CFF hitting up the city walk at the amphitheater parking lot, for the first time this season, to present to you the longest catwalk in CFF history.
Best known for scouting fashion talents, this season, CFF will continue to showcase fresh talented designers; featuring both leading and emerging designers from the region, including the internationally acclaimed Greek designer “Mary Theotoki” who will be featured on the CFF catwalk for the first time.
Under the city walk theme, season 9 will showcase the runway shows and fashion presentations from the region’s leading couture and ready-to-wear designers, showcasing SS’18 and FW’17-18 collections in Cairo Festival City Malls parking lot, where the show will be hosted, this year. Shoppers and mall visitors will also be able to enjoy the entire show live on Cairo Festival City Mall’s mega screens as well.
For the first time, Cairo Fashion Festival will take place in Cairo Festival City Mall Parking Lot. Luckily, shoppers at the mall can also enjoy the show live on Cairo Festival City Mall’s mega screens.
The festival will start on the 16th of November when CFF will join forces with top exhibitors to create a brilliant Bazaar featuring over 20 exhibitors. The Bazaar which will take place at the mall’s Festive Promenade will run from 10:00 a.m. till 12:00 a.m. and be open to all shoppers who can choose from a huge variety of unique exhibitors.
As part of the show, CFF will be working with Cairo Festival City Mall for the third time in a row to collaborate with leading fashion school, the London College of Fashion, when one lucky designer will win a scholarship for a short course at the college, fully funded by Cairo Festival City Mall. Fashion icon “Zeynab El-Helw,” also known as “The Fashion Pirate,” will be attending the festival to select the winning designer.
Commenting on the competition, Cairo Festival City Mall’s General Manager, Austin Martin, said: “Fashion is one of the most dominant elements of Cairo Festival City Mall, so hosting (fostering) a major event like CFF is a great way for us to highlight our continued support for this crucial industry. Our collaboration with the London College of Fashion is just one of the ways that we are able to support the emerging entrepreneurs and Egypt’s growing fashion community. At Cairo Festival City Mall we pride ourselves on being a leader in the market, which is why we are proud to be the host of one of the foremost fashion events and considered to be one of the industry trendsetters in the region. We thrive to nurture fashion talents, and having the opportunity to do so is always a great accomplishment at Cairo Festival City Mall.”
