In what’s being called the ‘world’s biggest fashion show’, Qatar Fashion United by CR Runway showcased more than 150 global and regional talents.
Qatar Fashion United by CR Runway, a mammoth fashion event, was jointly presented by Qatar Creates, a platform by Qatar Museums to amplify the country’s creative industries, and CR Runway, a global fashion experience uniting the industry’s most celebrated designers and models from around the world. More than 20,000 spectators gathered at Ras Abu Aboud 974 Stadium to witness creations by renowned names in the world of fashion, as well as enjoy musical performances by regional and international artists – a true celebration of fashion, music and culture.
In keeping with Qatar’s commitment to accelerate its creative economy, Qatar Fashion United by CR Runway, a unique concept by Her Excellency Shaikha Mayassa bint Hamad Al Thani, Qatar Museums Chairperson, was brought to life. The event was curated by French fashion editor and visionary stylist Carine Roitfeld and directed by CR Runway President and CEO, Vladimir Restoin Roitfeld. Qatar Fashion United by CR Runway was the third edition of CR Runway, following a premiere collaboration in Florence and a virtual one in 2020.
Over 150 established and up-and-coming designers from six continents and 50 countries presented a dazzling array of looks. Also participating were 21 Qatar-based brands, such as 1309 by Ghada Al Subaey, Hairaat by Nada Al Sulaiti and WADHA by Wadha Al Hajri, presented by M7, Qatar’s epicentre for innovation and entrepreneurship in fashion, design and technology. Established by Qatar Museums, M7 facilitates designers to build successful businesses locally and internationally while encouraging the fashion and design industry to play its part in the growth of Qatar’s creative circular ecosystem.
All proceeds from the show will benefit the Education Above All (EAA) foundation, a not-for-profit organisation that provides educational opportunities to underserved children and youth and empowers women to become active members of their communities.
