Where to get that Ramadan look
Ramadan is a time of renewal and reflection, but it is also a time of gathering and reconnecting with loved ones. As one of the year’s most important religious seasons, Ramadan calls for numerous Iftars (sunset meals) and Suhoors (late-night or early-morning gatherings), as well as gifts for the near and dear. Fashion during Ramadan is graceful and elegant, and is a fine time to buy yourself something special or give someone a memorable present.
Dubai hosts a number of pop-up shops and trunk shows, featuring the best of Ramadan-inspired fashion, along with bespoke collections found at boutiques and stores across the city. Take a look below at some of the city’s offerings:
The Dubai Mall couture house is one of the region’s top picks for boutiques offering modest fashion. Symphony’s year-round collections, curated by Emirati entrepreneur Salama Alabbar, offer something for those special Iftar and Suhoor outings.
Symphony is located in the Fashion Avenue at The Dubai Mall.
