Fujairah for Fashion
The word ‘fashion’ doesn’t come rapidly to mind when thinking about Fujairah but in a few days (19-21 May 2010) the ‘First Fashion Exhibition’ is being staged in the north-eastern emirate of the UAE.
After the VIP speeches and a ballet performance, fashion shows presented by different companies and brands will consume most of the time and be accompanied by Make Up Demos, Skin Clinics and raffle draws.
A more detailed programme is listed at this site.
One blog writer talking about this fashion exhibition says:
“It’s been ages since I actually went to Fujairah even for a simple get away from the city. You know, to relax, to enjoy the beach.”
This is the attraction that quickly comes to the minds of Dubai and Abu Dhabi residents—a place of retreat, a place to gain perspective amid the mountains, a place to dream as you look across the sea to the endless horizon.
Traditionally Fujairah has been built on the sea (fishing) and the land (agriculture). More recently with its strategic eastern port Fujairah is becoming a major industrial and manufacturing hub for the region.
In a quiet and unobtrusive way Fujairah is developing as a place for conferences, a centre for retreats and a tourist region where one can get rejuvenated and refreshed.
The Fujairah Fashion Exhibition (19-21May) is being held at the Fujairah Tennis and Country Club.
Check out their web site to find the location and to get acquainted with its many fine facilities.
