In the city where anything seems possible, it’s hard not to get carried away when it comes to fashion. From its grand shopping malls which are home to every luxury fashion brand you could think of to smaller boutiques that tempt you with incredible exclusive style, everything you could possibly want is suddenly at your fingertips in Dubai.
Why not broaden your wardrobe’s horizons this year? Venture out of those bustling department stores and into these little shopping sanctuaries. Enticing you with options you can wear all day, everyday, we round up some of our favourite boutiques with the help of The Cult Curators.
