After a successful run last year, Design One Dubai, a one-stop shopping exhibition is back to attract shopaholics before the festive season. As always, this will be a showcase of the best of UAE and South Asian designers. Design One is entering its eighth year, having established a number of brands in the fashion circles of Mumbai, Delhi, Chennai, Singapore and now, Dubai.
WHERE & WHEN:
This will be a two-day affair at the Godolphin Ballroom, Jumeirah Emirates Towers on September 30 and October 1, 2017, from 12noon to 8pm. So there is a lot of time to shop at ease!
WHAT’S SO SPECIAL ABOUT IT:
This year, there is an impressive line-up of 55 plus designers that includes trendsetting UAE brands like Ayesha Depala and Jelena Bin Drai. Other participants include Misha Lakhiani with her tradition-meets-modernity designs, Bina Modi’s exquisite hand embroidery, Mineali that has over 40 of the most exotic and avant garde jewellery brands and more. Simply put, it will be a display that brings together fashion powerhouses as well as emerging designers on one stylish platform. Also watch out for apparel (formal wear and casuals), fine jewellery, style accessories, home décor and showpieces.
THE MANISH MALHOTRA CONNECTION
Bollywood’s favourite designer Manish Malhotra has a special reason to celebrate this year as the Manish Malhotra Label completes 12 years. The big news is that Manish will be headlining the event, plus he will also curate a special fashion show displaying his one-of-a-kind designs on the ramp. We can’t wait for it!
THE LADIES BEHIND IT
