January 2019 Editor’s Letter
On behalf of the entire CFD team, I would like to wish you a wonderful New Year 2019! We hope you all had a festive and joyful holiday with your loved ones. While a year-end pause is a much-needed opportunity to refresh and prepare ourselves for the challenges of the ensuing year, the Fashion World does not stop its buzz and is an evergreen source of new and exciting developments.
Fashion Bytes is proud to publish its fourth edition. 2018 has been an interesting run for our magazine, establishing itself and defining its role and purpose within this innovative college. We plan to raise the bar in 2019 and are eager to present to you, in this new year, some of the creativity that our talented students will share through this platform. We are also looking forward to welcome the new group of students starting this semester and encourage them to express and materialize their ideas.
Last year, the fashion industry has made a conscious effort to promote inclusivity and sustainability. Social media, the news and individuals around the world were abuzz discussing these two very paramount topics and unearth ways that the fashion industry can get involved in. At CFD-Dubai, students are experimenting with sustainable fabrics and coming up with ecofriendly designs. They aim to add insight and contribute solutions to this global issue. Being a college that houses students from so many different backgrounds and nationalities is proving to be an exquisite hub for ideas and collaborations. I am looking forward to seeing and showcasing their undertakings in the coming months.
