9 Dubai style fiends to go on Le Plus Grande Defille Du Monde catwalk in Paris
Nine fashion-forward people from Dubai will have the chance to work the catwalk at the Le Plus Grande Defille Du Monde, Galeries Lafayette’s annual event, in Paris this Fall.
That would be a typical boring lead, except for one bit: these nine people haven’t been chosen, and one of them could be you. The event, which literally translates to the largest fashion show in the world, will for the first time include nine style fiends from Dubai as part of the luxury department store’s ‘Fashion is You!’ campaign.
What do candidates get should they be selected? A free trip to Paris to walk the runway one of the most important events on the Parisian fashion calendar. Castings and selection will occur at the Galeries Lafayette store in Dubai Mall, with all interested participants showing up in items from their own wardrobe representing their unique sense of style. The contestants will be shortlisted by a jury of Galeries Lafayette and its partners, and then chosen via votes on social media.
Candidates will be chosen from June 1st to 3rd at Galeries Lafayette at the Dubai mall from 3 to 8pm daily. They will have to showcase their stylistic creativity across four categories – Morning Urban, Tea Party, Cocktail Time, and Birds of the Night.
