You've seen one shopping mall you've seen them all, right? Actually, no. After the success of our Shop The Night Away sale event in Dubai Mall last week, on Wednesday we are taking on Mall of the Emirates for the third week of Dubai Shopping Festival's annual month-long retail extravaganza.
On the 23rd January, more than 80 outlets will be serving up an array of enticing deals and discounts, gifts and giveaways. Amazing.
You'll find us hanging out in All Saints where Healer Twins will be playing a set, and grabbing a bargain buy in Topshop - where DXB-based stylist Lucy Wildman will be giving her expert opinion in the VIP suite.
If you’re hungry (newsflash: always), Brunswick Eatery, Bar and Terrace are offering 15 per cent off the total food bill and there's a two-for-one deal at Emporio Armani Café.
It all kicks off at 6pm, and winds down at midnight. Here is a rundown of some of the deals, discounts and events taking place in the mall’s fashion, beauty and homeware stores...
