In collaboration with prestigious fashion schools and universities and with the backing of UNESCO, the Arab Fashion Council is dedicated to promoting fashion education and supporting Arab talents. We proudly offer fully covered scholarships worth over annually for Arab students to pursue Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in the fashion field.
Beyond scholarships, the AFC is committed to elevating the standards of the Fashion Education System to meet international benchmarks. We aim to guide existing schools in implementing the appropriate study plans to position fashion talent globally. This endeavor also seeks to attract renowned institutions to establish their regional branches, further enhancing the fashion education landscape.
In collaboration with the Dubai Ladies Club, the Arab Fashion Council has initiated a workshop program exclusively for women. This program aims to empower Arab women by equipping them with the necessary skills and knowledge to build sustainable careers within the creative economy. As part of this initiative, scholarships are offered to deserving participants, enabling them to pursue educational opportunities abroad. The program serves as a stepping stone for Arab women to excel in the fashion industry and contribute to the growth and success of the creative economy.
The Arab Fashion Council is embarking on a humanitarian endeavor within the realm of the Fashion System, fostering hope for a better, peaceful, and innovative future. In a significant moment during the AFC Gala ceremony on October 10th, 2016, the council unveiled the powerful short film titled “Sew for Syria.” In addition, it issued a call to action to establish workshops and factories at a Syrian Refugee Camp in Jordan.
“Sew for Syria” is a noble initiative supported by the non-profit organization CanaTurk, under the auspices of the Arab Fashion Council. Its primary objective is to provide training and education to Syrian women residing in refugee camps, equipping them with valuable tailoring skills. Through this initiative, these women can access employment opportunities within the creative economy, paving their way to integration into the working society.
The Arab Fashion Council, alongside its esteemed partners, is committed to empowering and uplifting these Syrian women, offering them a chance to rebuild their lives with dignity and purpose. By nurturing their talents and providing a pathway to economic independence, the council envisions a brighter future for these resilient individuals who have endured great hardships.
The Arab Fashion Council has proudly endorsed the “Brides Do Good” initiative, enabling brides-to-be to purchase pre-owned designer and sample wedding gowns from renowned designers such as Vera Wang, Elie Saab, and Monique Lhuillier. These exquisite gowns are available at Bicester Village in the UK.
Through these purchases, the initiative supports educational programming for young girls. Moreover, Brides Do Good generously donates a significant portion, up to two-thirds, of its sales to charity partners in Ethiopia, Nigeria, and other locations to eradicate child marriage.
This initiative is an extraordinary opportunity to contribute to a worthy cause while acquiring a stunning garment. Even if you’re not a bride-to-be, you can still show support by donating your dress, giving another woman a chance to fulfill her dream of wearing a designer wedding gown.
