The dates for the second Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience have been confirmed as October 30 to November 1. As with the inaugural event last year, the extended three-day fashion happening will take place at The Dubai Mall. Held in partnership with Vogue Italia, the fashion magazine’s editor-in-chief Franca Sozzani is unconfirmed, albeit tipped, to attend again this time around.

“We are extremely excited about the 2nd Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience.” she said “Last year was a huge success in terms of attendees, talents, and funds that were raised.”

As in 2013, a focus of VFDE 2014 will be emerging designers. Vogue Italia and The Dubai Mall boutique BySymphony.com will shortlist 20 budding talents to show their creations in what’s dubbed the Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience. Eight established international talents, selected by Vogue Italia, will also display their collections during the event, although no details have yet been released.
