My-Wardrobe.com Dubai Shopping Event

Following the launch party for my-wardrobe.com in Dubai, they set up a shopping event.

Editors from local magazines and potential clients were invited to a suite at the Ritz Carlton hotel to shop the pieces available on my-wardrobe.com.

The unique thing about this shopping event, for an online store, was that virtual shelves became reality.

Excited ladies shopped the many labels on display like Diane von Furstenberg, Carven, Burberry Brit, Vanessa Bruno, MICHAEL Michael Kors, D&G, L’Agence, Current/Elliott, Iosselliani and Issa, which were artfully displayed around the suite with the clothes and shoes in one room, and the bags and jewellery in another.

As Dubai is very much a multi-cultural city, it was interesting to see the foreign editors gasp in surprise when they were told how much their purchase was in pounds or dollars.

Those three-pieces they wanted suddenly became five.

With this much excitement around affordable, accessible, wearable pieces for the fashion-saavy shopper, I don’t think my-wardrobe.com will have any problems being a huge success in the Middle East.

Emily and I couldn’t leave Dubai without riding a camel.

Dubai is such an amazing place. The friendliest place on earth. I will definitely be going back for vacation.

Thanks to the Sarah and Lauren from my-wardrobe.com for inviting us to Dubai for their launch.

    LOVE the camel shot. Back when ANTM was my guilty pleasure, I remember a challenge which required posing on a camel (I wish I could remember what season that was). Anyway, it was hilarious; camels are real characters, lol. FC, you and Emily seemed to have handled things with far more poise — the two of you look great! Thanks for sharing….

    Oh it sounds like you had a wonderful time! Totally deserved, of course!
    I literally have no idea how you could sit on a camel, I can’t go too close to a pony without being scared.
    Also, how gorgeous are the Anya Hindmarch (are they Hindmarch?) glittery clutches? Glitter and sparkle is not just for Christmas!
