Mall of the Emirates has announced the line-up of international and regional style influencers scheduled to appear at the upcoming fashion and beauty conference SIMPLY Dubai on October 11 from 10am to 6pm at Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates. Designed to connect career-minded fashion and beauty lovers with experts in their field, SIMPLY Dubai returns exclusively to Mall of the Emirates for the third year as part of the mall’s signature event, World of Fashion.
The premier US-based conference is held annually in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago, and launched exclusively for the region during World of Fashion 2016. At the heart of every SIMPLY conference is a curated group of experts from a variety of industry fields who are there to tell their stories and inspire future generations. Headlining this year are two keynote speakers, stylist to the stars, Law Roach and international Makeup Artist, Lilit Caradanian.
LA based Law Roach, known as @LuxuryLaw, was recently recognized by The Business of Fashion 500 for shaping the global fashion industry. Regarded as an Image Architect he is frequently credited for Celine Dion’s triumphant fashion transformation and has worked with some of the biggest A-List celebrities in the entertainment industry including Zendaya, Ariana Grande, Jesse J, Ruby Rose, Skai Jackson, and Brandy. Roach is a former American Next Top Model judge alongside Ashley Graham, Rita Ora and Drew Elliot, and co-creator of the clothing and show line Daya by Zendaya. His styling debut happened by chance when Kayne West walked into Roach’s store in 2009 and brought the attention of paparazzi and industry insiders from around the world.
