DUBAI WORLD CUP STYLE STAKES – March 25, 2023

Apron Views is a vibrant social village where entertainment makes every moment special at the Dubai World Cup. The area is situated in front of the Grandstand and it’s the perfect outside location to interact and watch the action unfold. Tickets are 295 AED per person (admission only). Further details of the Style Stakes follow in March.
Last year, Goshopia won Most Creative Outfit with a fully sustainable look at Style Stakes, the style competition happening at the Dubai World Cup finale. The trend is to be more mindful of our choices. All their hats are handmade and made to order- making sure there is no waste and traditional techniques are preserved. And the dyes used are natural (yes, they use avocado, beetroot, indigo…). Unless the client needs a particular shade that can only be achieved using other kinds of pigments.
The dress was made using coffee sacs and is a work of art by designer Sylvia Calvo. Miah Llanes, the beautiful Filipina model represented one of the biggest expat communities in Dubai that very rarely get the spotlight in this kind of event.
