Our A-list celebrities will be on ground as part of the activation program to reinforce our unique trends."

We have chosen Dubai as the hub of our global design team because it is one of the most luxury-conscious markets and strategically located at the crossroads of Europe, Asia and Africa. We are confident that we will garner tremendous interest among the Fast Fashionistas in our growth path."
