There’s no limit to how much you can shop during Dubai Shopping Festival 2017. Dubai is the hotspot of high-end fashion brands and there are several ways to elevate your shopping experience while making the most of your stay in Dubai. If you are looking for ease while shopping, consider hiring the services of a personal shopper and value-added concierge services.
Hire a personal shopper who does wonders
Shopping in busy malls can be daunting for many, especially with endless options of luxury boutiques and time constraints. Hiring a personal shopper will make life a little more enjoyable. With Dubai being home to the best fashion names in the world, Dubai-based personal shoppers are most sought after as they know how to navigate busy malls and take you to the right boutiques.
Personal shoppers are experts in the latest fashion trends and have an inkling as to what style, fabric and colour might suit you. These consultants are dedicated to your needs whether you desire a luxury chiffon gown from Harvey Nichols or bling-studded stilettos from Bloomingdales. Two such personal shoppers are Nina Iskander and Kelly Lundberg,who will take the hassle out of your shopping bouts.
Work with Nina if you want to up your game in the corporate world. Not only will she lead you through the steps of grooming and personal image consulting, she will show you how to harness the power of the 4Cs (closet, clothing, choices and confidence) to look ready to take on the world. Kelly is an award-winning stylist and entrepreneur who empowers shoppers to incorporate poise into their personal style. Collaborating with designer boutiques all around the city, Kelly and team are bound to help you shop for the right clothes and accessories in line with your personality and needs.
Concierge experience at malls and hotels
Malls also offer shoppers premium personal shopping and concierge experiences. At Dubai Mall, begin your consultation with a personal shopper at the Fashion Avenue while seated with a full-on view of the Burj Khalifa, before starting your shopping gig.
Dubai Mall takes the concierge experience further by offering a dedicated lounge where you can drop your heavy shopping bags before embarking on another round of shopping. Even personal translation services are available all through the day to help you navigate through the mall. Skip the taxi queues and take advantage of the concierge limo service to drop you to your hotel.
Luxury hotels in Dubai are known for serving you after you have finished your personal shopping for the day. Rely on them to come up with a tailor-made luxury itinerary such as watching CATS at the Dubai Opera for the evening or 007 Bond exhibition at the Burj Khalifa.
At Kempinski, Mall of the Emirates, the multilingual concierge team arranges for restaurant reservations and travel tours beyond the usual porter services. In fact, at Atlantis, ThePalm, you can indulge in a helicopter ride where you will get a bird’s eye view of various landmarks that are part of the DSF experience this year.
