Under the patronage of Her Excellency Sheikha Al-Mayassa bint Hamad Al-Thani and co-hosted by the spokesperson and founder of EMERGE, Qatar Creates will host a fashion show and VIP dinner. EMERGE is a global charitable initiative devoted to uniting the fashion and creative industries as a force for good. Powered by global supermodel Naomi Campbell and Fashion For Relief.

On October 28, at Ceremonial Court in Education City, a charity gala and fashion show will be held to support alternative education and investments in young creative and business talent from developing regions, with a focus on Africa, the Diaspora, and developing communities all over the world.


Fashion For Relief is an organization that unites the international fashion, entertainment, design, and music industries to raise money for a variety of worthwhile causes and humanitarian crises while promoting inclusivity and equal opportunities for all.
It was founded in 2005 and was inspired by Naomi Campbell’s friendship with Nelson Mandela, the former president of South Africa.
Through their new initiative EMERGE, the event will welcome the biggest personalities in the fashion and creative industries to Doha this year.
Through this effort, new apprenticeships, after-school programs, and university programs will be developed with an emphasis on creative and alternative industries, including general education, fashion, technology, art, agriculture, and environmental innovations.

A big Couture Show will follow three major events that makeup EMERGE. The Fashion Exhibit will highlight a number of celebrated award-winning fashion designers from Africa, the Diaspora, and the Middle East, including Thebe Magugu, Bianca Saunders, and Abdel El Tayeb, while the Art Exhibit will focus on prominent and well-regarded young artists, led by art masters like Kehinde Wiley or Victor Ehikhamenor.
Following a discussion on the value of creativity in business between Naomi Campbell, Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa, and Kehinde Wiley, the creative and business event EMERGE Talk will bring together top professionals to examine the future of alternative sectors.

The brains behind Qatar Creates, Her Excellency Sheikha Al Mayassa bint Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani, stated: “With the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM, we stand at the verge of an incredible moment for our area.
It is up to us to seize this opportunity and focus the world’s attention on issues that affect marginalized people all across the world.
I appreciate EMERGE joining us, and I have faith that we can take advantage of this chance to uplift and empower people who most need it while setting cultural milestones.

A fashion presentation by well-known designers will be presented at the ticketed charity gala, which will also include an auction and a VIP dinner. Kate Moss, Jane Fonda, Beyoncé, and models Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, and Winnie Harlow have all walked in the benefit show in the past. The occasion will feature gifted award-winning designers from the Middle East, the Diaspora, and Africa.

The EMERGE gala is one of a record-breaking number of high-profile events that Qatar Creates has planned for the opening of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM and beyond. The executive director of Qatar Creates, Saad Al Hudaifi, praised this significant development in the organization’s quest to become a platform for culture and entertainment, saying:

As curators of the most interesting activities and events for our nation, it is Qatar Creates’ duty to promote cultural exchange.
The EMERGE gala is a major event in our calendar that also serves as a high point for the global fashion and creative sectors, giving us the chance to work together on topical projects that have a real positive impact on other people.
