The event showcased 250 brands from 11 different countries and concluded in style with a grand finale awards presentation.

The awards, presented by Heya, acknowledge the efforts of the exhibitors across two main categories; the Visitor’s Choice Awards and the Exhibitor’s Choice Awards. The awards went to Debaj and Tahani Al Otaibi, respectively for their outstanding contribution during Heya 15. 

Mashal Shahbik from QNTC, said: 'We're delighted with the success of the 15th Heya Arabian Fashion Exhibition and the attendance it has drawn with the wide variety of events held during the show. I would like to congratulate the winners of the Heya award, and to thank all the exhibitors and organisers who have delivered an exceptional edition.' She added, 'At QNTC we constantly strive to diversify Qatar's calendar of events and enrich it in a way that reflects Qatar's positioning as a destination that provides curated experiences. We look forward to sharing with our audiences, whether visitors or residences, the experiences in store for the summer.'

The grand opening of Heya 15 saw the Qatar Business Incubation Center (QBIC) launch the Lean Fashion Program, the first of its kind in the country in partnership with Fashion Technology Accelerator (FTA), a Milan-based hub dedicated to supporting fashion startups.
