Calling all Aussies

Australian ladies (and fashion lovers of all nationalities) out there will be seriously excited about the launch next month of You Boutique. This is the first online retailer in the UAE that we’ve seen stock so many affordable Australian fashion brands in one place. Some of the brands available are Isabelle Quinn, Mossman, Morrisday The Label, Runaway and Seven Wonders. This is just the starting point – every month new designers will be added to the site. Products will be delivered direct to your door within the UAE. you-boutique.com

New Pakistani fashion

Khaadi has added a new shop to its growing list in the UAE. Now open in Deira City Centre, the store stocks traditional and modern Pakistani designs for men, women and children. The artistic feel to the brand means you’ll find hand-drawn prints and arty designs on their clothes. They also have a fab range of accessories and homewares including bedding and furniture. What more could you want?

Crazy for kaftans

Every year, UAE boutique Symphony holds its annual Tasyourah exhibition before Ramadan. For 2017 the event will feature kaftans made exclusively for Symphony by international and local designers. Some of the designers who have created pieces include Antonio Berardi, Osman, Noon by Noor and Temperley London. The event will take place from April 25-29 but the designs will be available to buy at the Symphony store until August. Here are some of my favourite pieces you can expect to see on offer. It’s in the Annex of Burj Khalifa.
