The exclusive event takes place in Dubai’s most luxurious hotel resort, the Madinat Jumeirah and will include three catwalk shows a day presenting the best in local and international designers, sponsored by Fashion TV and L’Oreal.

Within the fast growing region, department stores such as Bloomingdales, Galeries Lafayette, House of Fraser, Harvey Nichols, Saks and are looking to widen their offer and welcome new brands to answer the consumer’s constant need for creative and exclusive products.

Visitors to the show should note that the United Arab Emirates plans to ban the data network for all Blackberry phones in the country from October this year. Even foreign travellers with roaming services will not be able to access email, messaging or web browser services.
