Dubai, a city that has long been pushing the envelope in terms of design, will host its first-ever Design Week this October 26-31.

"The inaugural edition of Dubai Design Week is a tangible step towards our commitment to raising the profile of Dubai as the emerging capital of design," says Nez Gebreel, CEO of the Dubai Design & Fashion Council. "We look forward to transforming Dubai into a key gateway that brings together regional designers with creative thinkers from around the globe."

The week coincides with Downtown Design, a trade show that also features a curated program that links historical design with the future.
