Dolce & Gabbana takes Dubai by storm with city-wide fashion shoots
Italian fashion duo Dolce & Gabbana opened their flagship store in Dubai in a glittering event on Monday
Italian fashion duo Dolce & Gabbana opened their flagship store in Dubai in a glittering event on Monday, but not before flooding social media with snaps of the latest collection shot in unlikely locations across the city.
The new store is the largest Dolce & Gabbana offering in the region and covers 1,000 square feet split between its two levels.
Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana touched down to join the opening ceremony which was attended by industry heavyweights, including the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Arabia Saudi Princess Deena Aljuhani Abdulaziz who posed with the fashion superstars.
The brand, which is known for its range of Gulf-targeted designer abayas – the loose robes women in the region traditionally wear – took to social media to showcase their love of Dubai.
Dolce & Gabbana-clad models traipsed around the city and even posed in the older areas of Dubai, including the markets and trading areas.
The duo held a star-studded after party attended by the who’s who of the Gulf’s fashion scene, including Saudi blogger Tamara al-Gabbani and Emirati blogger Nadya Hasan.
