Let’s make it abundantly clear: you can buy any and all kinds of clothes, brands and designer labels in Dubai. Searching for your favourite label, an obscure up-and-coming designer, that overseas brand which will never make it to your local shops? You will find them in Dubai. This is clothes shopping on a whole other level.
Yes, the odds are in your favor of finding that unique piece of clothing or brand you have been following on Instagram or seen in a glossy magazine, but which is completely out of your reach in your hometown. Every possible brand is represented in Dubai with a large number of global brands having opened their flagship store in Dubai instead of their origin country. Many flagship stores here are tourist destinations as much as shopping locations.
From the most exclusive brands in glamorous malls to cheap bargains at markets and outlets, the latest collections, past collections, haute couture, designer brands from anywhere in the world, regular high-street labels, street wear, work clothes, sports and active wear, fashion for men, women, children, babies, brides, babies… the options are endless in this shopping capital of the world. Just walk into any shopping centre or mall and you’ll see.
