Al Wasl Plaza was transformed into a fashion runway last night, welcoming action-focused designers from India to America to the UAE to champion sustainable haute couture.

The first-ever fashion show at COP took place under the technicolor splendor of Al Wasl Dome’s 360-degree projection surface – the world’s largest. Celebrating diversity and inclusivity an entourage of models, including some with alopecia, disabilities and non-visible disabilities, took to the stage.

Designers Shantnu and Nikhil debuted a collection that promotes a circular economy. All of their contemporary garments can be exchanged for store credit, while the team also offers a limited inventory to minimise overproduction.


Rami Kadi – a UN Environment Programme Regional Goodwill Ambassador – also has a strong focus on responsible production. Kadi has previously created a dress made entirely of plastic from the ocean, as well as used fabrics from previous collections, re-dyed to create new collections.

Yello By Zein AlTawil is a sustainable and ethical Abaya brand based in the UAE. Yello uses renewable, sustainable, and biodegradable fabrics, while also avoiding over-production.

Gelareh Alam, an acclaimed fashion designer headquartered in San Francisco, is another proponent of sustainability within the fashion world. All garments are made-to-order, ensuring minimal waste and maximum craftsmanship.
