Qatari and American Designers Celebrate Cultural Ties as Part of 'Discover America Week'
A week-long series of events organized by the American Chamber of Commerce (AmCham Qatar) and the U.S. Embassy in Qatar, the second annual Discover America Week — Qatar 2016 celebrates American culture, commerce and the friendship that exists between the two countries by enabling the community in Doha to experience everything American. As part of the celebrations, the “Bridge that Unites Us” panel discussion reinforced the union between the two nations and solidified the important role art and fashion play in bridging cultures together. Opened by Carmen Haddad, CEO of Citibank Qatar and AmCham Qatar Board of Governors member, the distinguished panel was made up of prominent fashion industry leaders in Qatar and internationally. The forum was followed by a star-studded fashion show, presenting collections from Debaj Collection, Qatar; D’Oro, Qatar; Citizen by Azin, U.S.; Papillon Jewelry, Qatar and The Closet, which showcased two American designer brands.
