Dancers, DJs, new designs and prizes to delight crowds at Nakheel’s flagship mall this weekend
Nakheel’s Ibn Battuta Mall will be transformed into a music and fashion lovers’ paradise when it hosts its first Fashion Express this weekend as part of its Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF) activities.
The unique concept, taking place Friday and Saturday evenings (22 and 23 January) combines the latest in fashion with high-energy music and dance at six of Ibn Battuta’s most popular fashion stores – G2000, LC Waikiki, New Look, Steve Madden and Max – with spectacular shows, prizes and exclusive DSF offers at each.
With live commentary from Virgin Radio’s Kris Fade and Priti Malik, the Fashion Express team of flashmob dancers in themed dress will create a unique show before enticing the audience into the shop where the entertainment will continue with more dancing and a fashion show. Customers can then view and items in the DSF Runway Collection – the clothes worn by the models – from a designated area within the store.
Omar Khoory, Director, Nakheel Retail, said: “DSF 2016 is now in full swing and Fashion Express will bring even more energy and vibrancy to Ibn Battuta Mall this weekend. This unique, exciting concept is sure to delight fashionistas, music lovers, dance fans and shoppers who simply happen to be there when the shows take place.”
