A platform seeks to recover data and sends emails signed by the Arab Fashion Council or the Arab Fashion Week; this is a fraudulent initiative. Make sure to pay attention to the entity of the email sent.

We invite you to refrain from answering them and remind you that the site for official accreditations is as follows: https://arabfashionweek.org/designers-application/.

All official information from the Council is sent via email addresses containing the domain name arabfashioncouncil.com.

If you receive any questionable calls or emails, please let us know by emailing designers@arabfashioncouncil.com.


The Arab Fashion Council (AFC) considers the safety and well-being of its supporters, partners, collaborators, and designers the ultimate priority. AFC prides itself on its authenticity, professionalism, and transparency and believes it is essential to advise the public and designers about third parties imposters claiming to be AFC representatives. Such imposters are copying AFC’s proprietary site, intellectual property, and copyrighted materials to invite them to participate in fashion events not verified nor supported by international fashion authorities. In particular, beware of third-party presentations that copy AFC’s presentations and materials and do not share any financial information or payment details. AFC would never ask you to disclose such financial information. Finally, beware of third parties contacting you via Instagram, email, or WhatsApp, claiming to protect you and share documents that could hack your phone with you.

If anyone claiming to be a representative of AFC or claiming to be organizing the official fashion week on the international calendar, an individual or entity breaching AFC’s proprietary intellectual property or any similar matter, tries to contact you, do not respond without first verifying their identity and do not share your documents or credit card details. The AFC will never ask for such information.

The AFC’s marked success and milestones made in Saudi Arabia and Dubai are evidenced by smaller and unknown platforms in the Middle East stealing AFC’s intellectual property and claiming to be in the official fashion calendar when they are not. So promptly send us an email to info@arabfashioncouncil.com.

Yours Faithfully
