Hands-free at Mall of the Emirates

Mall of the Emirates

Mall of the Emiratessets 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. If you want a more customised experience, Boutique 1 offers a curated selection of designerwear and stylists with an eye for detail. 

Don’t worry if you find yourself balancing shopping bags of various sizes 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.

All the French flair at Le BHV Marais

With its elegant promenades, upscale stores and cafe culture, City Walk has brought a modern town centre vibe to Dubai’s retail scene. Get style inspiration directly from the world's fashion capital with a stroll through French fashion store Le BHV Marais. Pick out your season favourites from a mixture of local and international labels, and have them custom-fitted with the retail destination's tailoring service. For men looking to add the perfect suit to their wardrobe, check out Dutch brand Suitsupply – its store features a made-to-measure service, as well as home visits by specialists to help create your dream outfit.


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.

The Dubai Mall also offers a ‘Shop, Drop and Deliver’ service – visitors with too many bags to carry can drop them off at dedicated desks and request delivery to their home or hotel. Best of all? It's 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.
