Fashion on the other hand in the UAE is a blistering task because their summers reach 120 degrees and you must be covered up from head to toe and there is no bending the rules when it comes to the strict dress code. For relief from the heat much of their daytime culture takes place in malls and that’s a good thing!
The Dubai Mall is the world’s largest shopping destination, literally has every shop on the isle of Manhattan, from Hermes to H&M, Harry Winston to Forever21, under one roof.
With all of this great fashion one must wonder what’s under those cleverly disguised burkas?
What I can say is don’t judge a book by its cover, and write off the idea that these muslims are short changed on fashion, because Dubai Fashion Week is an extravagant event!
Also under its roof? An ice skating rink, aquarium and one mall even has an indoor ski-slope. Free to subscribe to Bella Petite!
