Etihad celebrates fashion event at Abu Dhabi with designer, Julien Macdonald

ETIHAD Airways and celebrated British designer Julien Macdonald OBE hosted an intimate celebration of fashion last night at the UAE national airline’s state-of-the-art innovation Training Academy in Abu Dhabi. Etihad Airways is a sponsor of 17 annual Fashion Weeks around the world, in partnership with WME | IMG. 

The exclusive event, which showcased some of Julien Macdonald’s creations, was also attended by renowned stylist Karl Plewka, fashion and lifestyle media, up-and-coming Emirati and Arab fashion designers, regional social influencers, corporate partners and Etihad Airways employees. 

 The airline took the opportunity to screen its new promotional fashion film, titled ‘Runway to Runway’, which was launched on 7 September on the opening night of NYFW: The Shows in New York. Featuring 17 of Macdonald’s couture outfits, and WME | IMG models, the short inflight film draws parallels between the production of a high-end fashion show and the preparation that goes into ensuring a safe and comfortable flight. The film was directed byaward-winning director Paul Butterworth and also features unique integrations with global brands IWC Schaffhausen and BMW.
