Each winner received up to $200,000 in financial support, along with an exclusive mentorship program through FTA’s partnership with MATCHESFASHION.
Global Fashion Officer and member of the FTA Advisory Board, Natalie Kingham, shares, “We are so proud to continue our partnership with Fashion Trust Arabia. Championing global design talent has always been at the heart of our business, and Fashion Trust Arabia has opened up a great opportunity to shine a light on new and innovative designers from the MENA region.”
