Students of a fashion college in Dubai recycled refugee tent material into handbags to send a message on World Refugee Day, which comes on June, 20. All those students study at Dubai College of Fashion and Design. The college has made a collaboration with humanitarian relief supplier firm, NRF International to organize a fashion show to display the handbags. The event was held at International Humanitarian city and was titled “Bag of Hope.” The motive of the show was to raise awareness about refugees’ problem among the people.

Four fashion designing students of the college took part in the show including Fatima Al Ali from the UAE, Sherifat Abubakar from Ghana, Hiba Asif from Pakistan, and Amira Saif from Yemen. Fatima and Amira Saif were the finalists, and the competition remained tie between them.

Sherifat Abubakar from Ghana said, “The bags (TSANTES) were made from fabric which was used as a tarpaulin for a refugee tent. We are raising awareness about peace, love, hope, and connectivity through fashion and it’s a great way to send the message about what refugees go through. If and when our products go into the market, the entire funds made will be given to the cause of refugees.”

Refugee crisis remains a problem in Dubai. Hence to tackle them, awareness raising events commonly held in the country and fashion have been playing an essential role in it. In 2017, Helen Storey, who is the designer of several celebrities, made a dress from a refugee tent cloth and walked on an exhibition to raise awareness about the refugee crisis.
