This tour is all about thrift shopping, second-hand fashion and underground apparel. It is not about designer bags, luxury cars or exotic pets. Today Zahra & Chantal will take you to their Dubai—a mixture of the forgotten, the unwanted and the cost-efficient spots across the city that will deck you out in some exclusive, alternative and ready-for-the-runway looks.
Dubai is already a metropolis for fashion but by 2020, the UAE’s fashion industry is expected to grow exponentially, making the country a global fashion hub. Its massive textile industry, which is said to be the country’s largest trading sector after oil, is by no doubt expected to facilitate the rapid growth of the country’s fashion scene over the next few years. With this information in mind, and our passion for fashion, we felt it was absolutely necessary to explore an industry on the brink of stardom and we couldn’t think of a better tour guide to show us the ropes than one of Dubai’s leading fashion icons, Zahra Hasby & Chantal Brocca.
