VCUarts Qatar is partnering with Heya for the 12th Heya Arabian Fashion Exhibition in Doha, Qatar.
The 12th Heya Arabian Fashion Exhibition continues to present a “showstopper event for local designers, delivering a platform to foster Qatar’s fashion scene and empower entrepreneurship and knowledge-sharing”, the organisers have said.
This year, for the first time Heya has partnered with Virginia Commonwealth University School of the Arts in Qatar (VCUarts Qatar) and Qatar Business Incubation Centre (QBIC) to provide “valuable expertise for visitors in everything — from fashion marketing to finance, and how to get a fashion business off the ground via daily workshops, forums and talks”, the statement notes.
VCUarts Qatar has substantial involvement with the emerging design industries in Qatar and plays a significant role in its catalyst for growth, having established itself as a centre of excellence for education and research in local art and design.
