Future Rising Faissal El-Malak Premieres New Fashion Film at W Dubai Al Habtoor City’s Future Rising Event

W Hotels Worldwide and Mixcloud touched-down at the W Dubai Al Habtoor City for the annual Future Rising event, a global series celebrating the creative leaders of tomorrow. It’s here we found fashion designer, Faissal El-Malak, debuting a new conceptual fashion film, “Embroidery for a Love Song.”

While at the W Dubai AHC, El-Malak gets real with DJ and writer Millie Cotton, who co-hosts the pop-culture podcast ‘Keeping it Candid.’ In a candid conversation, El-Malak talks of the inspiration he finds in the sensory overload throughout Dubai, a place that is his personal wonderland with a “whirl of people, color, beauty, grit, and grime.” The new video, a collaboration with film director Amirah Tajdin, was made exclusively for Future Rising: Wonderland and showcases the eccentricities of imagination while exploring the traditional music of the United Arab Emirates. The result? A mix of fashion, music, and marvel.

After the premiere, we caught up with El-Malak for a one-on-one conversation to hear his thoughts on “Embroidery for a Love Song.” Listen to what he has to say below then have a look at everything that went down at the film’s premiere at the W Dubai.
