The winds of change are sweeping across the fashion industry as it reconfigures itself to meet the ever-changing preferences of all stakeholders. The need of the hour for designers is collaboration, be it with manufacturers, marketers, or consumers, and innovation. Moreover, in a world where digital natives are increasing, technological transformation is critical. By allowing fashion to develop a deep relationship with technology, designers and fashion visionaries are rethinking how designs are created and delivered, thereby transforming the fashion world. Now, the Dubai-based Arab Fashion Council and Microsoft are joining to spearhead this transformation.

A range of Windows devices is giving designers the freedom of convenience and multi-tasking. They can now quickly browse through designs, snip an image for inspiration, make notes, create a presentation, and share it directly with their team. They are also increasingly using Snap Assist to combine two apps for easy referencing and editing; and OneDrive to quickly share ideas, inspiration, and designs between devices. With these and many more solutions, Windows is enabling designers to dream, design, and deliver.

Microsoft and the Arab Fashion Council have partnered to enable fashion and design students to use the best technology to help them dream, design, and deliver. Students at the Dubai-based FAD Fashion Institute have been given a chance to attend educative training workshops to learn how to best utilize Windows devices to bring the best of their creative talent to life.
