Among the highlights is that visitors will be able to purchase looks straight off the runway. Tagged as #ShopTheShow, the event features a digital platform that will enable real-time sales to be completed at Fashion Forward Dubai through messaging services, such as WhatsApp, which will be linked to a secure credit-card payment gateway. Is this the future of fashion? We sure think so.
