With a steady stream of leisure activities, new retail openings and record-breaking visitor numbers, The Dubai Mall has defined its position as the must-visit, year-round lifestyle destination. October, however, will be one of the most exciting months as the mall gears up for the second Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience, which kicks off on October 30th.

Last month, the style cognoscenti descended on fashion weeks in New York, London, Paris and Milan and now, with Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience, the international spotlight will be shining on Dubai. With its first edition in 2013, Vogue Fashion Dubai Experience showcased the city as a global fashion capital and a platform for the newest international trends. This year’s event, extended to three days, will bring together the who’s who in fashion, as well as high-profile guests, in a celebration like no other.

At this year’s event, visitors will have the opportunity to appreciate collections by rising style stars of the future, as spotted by Vogue Italia, The Dubai Mall and BySymphony.com. Find out what to expect at the event in a special feature in this edition of the magazine. Also in this issue, the team delves into the world of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, whose fashion line, Elizabeth and James, is new to Bloomingdale’s this season. The reopening of the exquisite Van Cleef & Arpels boutique at the mall prompted a closer look at the history of this famous French maison and as Nars makes an eagerly awaited return to Sephora next month, this edition examines the allure of this popular beauty brand.

Autumn in Dubai is a tempting proposition for people all over the world, many of whom find it the perfect time to visit the region and enjoy all the mall has to offer. This month, it’s time to head outdoors and enjoy the mesmerising vistas that Downtown Dubai delivers, viewed from the wide variety of restaurants in Souk Al Bahar or the many culinary hot spots inside the mall that present ringside seats for The Dubai Fountain. 

Enjoy October at The Dubai Mall !

The Dubai Mall Magazine is available free of charge from all information desks in the mall as well as from residences and hotels in Downtown Dubai.
