The Egyptian fashion scene blossomed from the studios and workshops of designers with golden hands and sheer unmatchable talents. Who would've thought that we're already reaching our 7th season of the Cairo Fashion Festival, taking the city by storm this weekend as beautifully adorned socialites and celebrities grace the Cairo Festival City Mall red carpet, in its enchanting 3D Broadway theatre theme, and the Abdelaziz sisters make a graceful appearance. No fashion festival can even happen without a runway show lined with gorgeous models bedecked in signature pieces; this year, Moroccan-born fashion and design prodigy Said Mahrouf will be coming to Egypt for the first time ever to attend, as well as the ingenious Marmar Halim whose work strolled through the whole world's red carpets. We'll be seeing some of our favourite Middle Eastern and international brands with their newest FW'16/17 and SS'17 congeries, as well as some of Egypt's biggest fashion bloggers who'll be turning DHL T-shirts into sartorial masterpieces, and Egyptian designers tailor making impressive apparel using the DHL logo and colours. Of course, these guys over here could make a potato sack look good...
