What is the importance of blue colour… sea colour for fashion designers?
The colour and word blue can be used as the theme for a competition that includes ‘Best Original Dress’ which will incorporate the colours Turquoise, White and Silver to match the Blue Economy logo. Having different nationalities and cultures will show what blue means to different countries through different fabrics and designs.
How can the sea be part of our life?
The sea is one of the most important resources that we have to be able to sustain life. It gives us a wide variety of seafood and also a beautiful underwater world to enjoy. The sea is one of the most important and used modes of transport to deliver goods across the world and for leisure and entertainment on cruises.
and as Henry Wadsworth Longfellow said
“My soul is full of longing
for the secret of the sea,
and the heart of the great ocean
sends a thrilling pulse through me.”
How can we promote Egypt through sea ?
Egypt can be showcased by using the sea landscapes such as the River Nile as the background for photo shoots of the competitive models and shows. Additionally, the seaside hotels, restaurants and river restaurant boats can be promoted by the models on social media via post and live streaming.
Do you make special events by or in the sea?
We have previously held competitions that took place in the sea and pools and we can create floating catwalks in the sea. This can also be accompanied by shows of synchronized swimming in a pool or aerial and silk shows in the sea suspended by sea cranes or from land. The shows can also be performed in Theatres on cruise ships and other luxury boats if the opportunity is given.

Egypt has long coasts, canals and lakes… that all year can be invested in tourism, contests and conferences.. what do you think about this?
This makes Egypt ideal for these types of events as different shows can be held all year round from sport and sea events held outside in summer and shows held inside in the winter. Additionally, fashion shows can be held on river restaurant boats can be used to show the sea during the winter months.
Is Egypt a good country for these fashion and marine sport activities..?
Egypt is a great country to hold these events especially with the sun shining for most of the year allowing for sport and fashion events to be held in the sea, lakes and hotels by the sea. Additionally, during the winter months, indoor pools can be used for synchronized swimming events.
Do you think models will like to participate in these events in Egypt?
Yes, most of the models travel the world for competitions and Egypt can attract a multitude of nationalities to compete. With Egypt’s cultures, traditions and heritage, including the Pyramids of Giza which is the only Wonder of the World that was awarded honorary status, models will be very happy to participate in events organized there.
