On the 17th & 18th of January PASHION presented the third edition of  CAIRO’S FASHION NIGHTS ( #CFN3 ). The event was co-hosted by French, Italian and Egyptian actress, model and filmmaker Elisa Sednaoui. “Being a well known fixture on the international fashionscene, and the fact that Elisa is the descendant of  the illustrious Sednaoui family who not only pioneered luxury retail in pre-1952 revolution Egypt but in all the Arab world, almost predestined her to be part of Cairo Fashion Nights 3″ says Susan Sabet (PASHION’s publisher and editor in chief).

During the press conference, Sednaoui introduced the Elisa Sednaoui Foundation , to be launched in Egypt in April this year. www.elisasednaouifoundation.org
