Meet the Local Fashion Designers Behind Some of CIFF’s Red Carpet Looks

    After the huge success of El-Gouna Film Festival (GFF), we are so excited to see what the Cairo International Film Festival (CIFF) has to offer. We were captivated by the amount of beautiful dresses on display at the ritzy festival, and couldn’t be more proud when we found out that most, if not all, of that glitz and glam is courtesy of Egypt’s very own local fashion gurus.

    Norine Farah showed the world what she can do with a dress, as the stars she designed for rocked the red carpet at GFF. One of the stars that truly took the spotlight was Amina Khalil, and she remained loyal to Norine’s vision this time around as she chose her as the designer for her dress in CIFF as well.
