Jacob Abrian defines himself to be a citizen of the world but always proud of his Arabic origins that is the main engine behind his determination. He is born in 1992 and received his first honorary high-school degree in Life Science in 2007, he studied briefly Film Making and Fine Arts before he obtained his second honorary Master’s degree in Architecture from the Polytechnic University of Milan in 2014. In 2013 he has been selected to be one of the Architects for the EXPO 2015. In 2012 he was discovered as a model and he posed for the world’s most renown brands, such as Roberto Cavalli, to shortly become the first international male model of Arabic roots. Traveling around the world and living in the fashion capitals has contributed to enriched his network which assisted him to put into reality the dream of establishing a fashion system that represents and develops the Arab Talents. His dream came true when he founded the Arab Fashion Council at an age of 22 being the youngest of his age to hold the position of representing the fashion industry in the 22 Arabic countries.
In reference to the big success that the Arab Fashion Week has witnessed since its first launch in Dubai in October 2015, Jacob has been appointed by the Executive as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Arab Fashion Council. At the same time, Jacob acts as board Advisor to the American University in the Emirates (AUE).
