The Dubai Mall marked an incredible 2014, further underlining our credentials as the world’s most-visited retail and leisure destination for the fourth consecutive year.

And the New Year has commenced on a fantastic note for Dubai and the mall, with a record-breaking visitor turnout for our annual New Year’s Eve celebration.  The world’s most awaited spectacle has once again added to our city’s pride.

The celebratory note continues as we welcome visitors from around the world to mark the 20th Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF). This year’s theme, ‘A Journey of Celebrations,’ indeed reflects the positivity of Dubai, which is today a global hub for business, leisure and fashion.

Driving the dynamism of the city is The Dubai Mall, a strategic partner of the DSF celebrations. In addition to festive deals, the mall is showcasing an array of entertainment activities for the entire family.

This edition of The Dubai Mall Magazine offers you a ringside view of what’s new at the retail outlets and how you can make every visit to the mall with family and friends even more memorable.

For those who want to start the New Year with a new look, the Fashion pages offer enough vignettes on the latest sartorial trends. From high fashion to high street, the choice abounds. For those all-important finishing touches, turn to the Accessories section that showcases the latest must-have watches, in addition to a chronicle on the life and times of French brand Hermes.

The editorial team gets up close and personal with Dior’s Creative Director Raf Simons to find out what the future holds for the luxury brand and takes a look at the evolution of Elie Saab, the Lebanese fashion marvel. Also read about the latest from Tom Ford’s makeup and beauty collection. And, to help you keep those little ones entertained, read about the latest hit confectionery: Spun Candy.

With Dubai enjoying cooler climes, it is the perfect time to head into the great outdoors. The Dubai Mall Magazine picks its favourite outfits for a day out on the dunes or an evening meal under the stars. And in the heart of the city, The Dubai Mall and Downtown Dubai’s dining avenues – both indoor and al fresco – serve as just the right destination for a relaxed evening.

Enjoy January at The Dubai Mall.
