The non-profit organization Fashion Trust Arabia (FTA) has announced the emerging
design talents who are on the finalist lists of FTA 2022 Awards in their respective categories.

The 24 designer finalists were selected by this year’s Advisory Board which had the delicate task to go over a numerous amount of applications submitted by emerging talent from across the MENA region:

This year we’ve received over 1,000 applications from incredible talent across the MENA region. Since we launched FTA in 2018, our community has been growing immensely, and it’s incredibly rewarding for us to witness the journey of many Arab designers who have taken their brands to the next level.” Tania Fares, FTA Co-Founder & Co-Chair.

The finalists will be presenting their collections in Doha to a prestigious jury on October 26th while the winners will be announced at the FTA 2022 Awards ceremony.

Were part of the FTA Advisory Board this year, Adam Baidawi, Alexander Fury, Bryan Boy, Carmen Busquet, Edgardo Osorio, Elizabeth Von Der Goltz, Erdem Moragliou, Fabio Piras, Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, Gaia Repossi, Imruh Asha, Mary Alice Malone, Nina Garcia, Olivier Theyskens, Patti Wilson, Pierre M’Pele, Piergiorgio Del Moro, Saif Mahdhi, Sarah Andelman, Sara Maino, Sofia Guellaty, Tiffany Godoy, Wayman Bannerman & Micah
