Bedaya Centre for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (Bedaya Centre), a joint initiative by Qatar Development Bank (QDB) and Silatech, in collaboration with Fifty One East, is organising a fashion exhibition titled ‘Tomorrow’s Designers’, which will highlight the work of Qatari entrepreneurs.
The exhibition will be held for two weeks from September 18 to October 2, from 10am to 10pm daily. The collaboration between the two entities will facilitate the provision of dedicated space at Fifty One East aiming to support talented and creative Qatari entrepreneurs by offering them the opportunity to showcase their fashion collections.
In addition, Fifty One East will present a workshop for the selected entrepreneurs with topics related to the fashion industry, such as current trends in global fashion, consumer strategies, purchasing processes, best pricing practices, and other important topics.
Abdulla Faleh al-Saeed, board member and general manager of Bedaya Centre, said: “We are pleased to collaborate once again with Fifty One East, one of the leading names in the fashion and retail sector in Qatar. The extensive experience of Fifty One East will enable us to highlight the potential of talented Qatari entrepreneurs in the fashion industry, which is gaining momentum and popularity around the world. Our collaboration will provide them with a unique opportunity to display their designs in one of the most prestigious luxury department stores in Qatar.”
