Three Fifty Nine will go on to showcase their spring/summer 2019 collection at Fashion Scout London, an independent platform for creative and international designers that has nurtured some of the biggest names in the industry at the beginning of their career, including Peter Pilotto, David Koma, Eudon Choi and Phoebe English, at Freemasons’ Hall, from 14 to 17 September.
“I’m thrilled to have been selected as the winner of DDFC x FAD Dubai Fashion Scout London,” says the Egyptian-born designer. “It’s an incredible platform for emerging designers to present their collections at London Fashion Week and I am overjoyed to be amongst the designers showcasing at the renowned event. I would like to thank DDFC and FAD Dubai for this opportunity and for all their support, it’s a dream come true!
