Hands-free at Mall of the Emirates

DSF, Mall of the Emirates

Mall of the Emirates sets the mood for its elite visitors from the get-go. Get dropped off at the ground level VIP area or access the Fashion Dome from the luxurious valet parking zone, where you can sip on complimentary refreshments at the lounge before starting your shopping expedition. Comb through three storeys of fashion straight off international runways at the mall's flagship Harvey Nichols with a personal shopper to guide you. Don’t worry if you find yourself balancing shopping bags after a particularly intense spree – Mall of the Emirates offers several ‘hands-free’ collection desks for your convenience. Leave your bags with the helpful staff where it will be sealed, stored and delivered at your request, either to a preferred location at the mall or straight to your hotel.


Spoilt for choice at The Dubai Mall

Fashionistas seeking a luxury experience can find it at The Dubai Mall. This record-breaking destination can supply you with a personal shopper to help navigate its 1,200 outlets, plus a porter service and exclusive gifts and offers. Top-level customers are also granted access to The Lounge in Fashion Avenue, where they can unwind while enjoying gourmet snacks and drinks. Short on time? The flagship Bloomingdale’s department store offers personal shoppers, while Galeries Lafayette boasts a ‘glamour’ area with a VIP lounge for customers to browse designer dresses while sampling delicious bites, and the Level Shoes in-house stylists ensure your accessories are perfectly paired with trendy footwear. The Dubai Mall also offers a ‘Shop, Drop and Deliver’ service – drop them off at dedicated desks with delivery free for purchases over AED500.

There's much more in store

If you’d like to shop across Dubai’s best malls, but with consistent advice throughout, invest in a personal stylist. The city has plenty of style gurus willing to accompany you to whichever malls and stores you’d like – or they could show you their own favourite spots, possibly unveiling a few hidden gems along the way. Lucia Csobonyei of Your Unique Image shares her fashion advice with everyone from CEOs to royalty, while Nina Iskander is on every resident trend-setter's speed dial. If you want curated picks to come home to you, Mr Draper for gents and Wear That for the ladies will deliver their options right to your door.

Meanwhile Al Tayer Group's Amber loyalty card pushes up your purchasing power in designer stores like Bloomingdale's and Harvey Nichols as you earn points that can be redeemed as discounts.
