Sarah Jessica Parker is set to visit Dubai in December
To promote her new shoe line
Come December, Dubai will be the first international location to stock the SJP Collection outside of the US – and the occasion will be celebrated with a visit from the iconic actress herself.
"I am thrilled to be launching the SJP Collection in our first international market, and particularly excited to be working with Harvey Nichols and Bloomingdale's in Dubai," She says. The star will will sign shoes, boxes and hang tags at both department stores during her visit. She added, "This is an enormous opportunity for us to reach a whole new customer, and we've had a lot of fun curating a collection we feel, and hope, properly reflects and suits the Middle Eastern woman's lifestyle. I'm so looking forward to spending time with those who have been watching and supporting our collection from afar."
Parker's famous Sex and The City character Carrie Bradshaw was known for her obsessive love of shoes, especially Manolo Blahniks, however unlike Bradshaw's bankruptcy following her footwear habit, real-life SJP has focused on quality and value.
"I want customers to be delighted with how the shoe is presented, how much care we've taken, the unique colour combinations and even the shape of the heel. Ultimately, I'm striving to produce a shoe they haven't yet seen on the market, especially at this particular price point," says Parker. The shoes are made in Italy by a third-generation Tuscan shoemaker.
Sarah Jessica Parker will be in Dubai December 7-9 to sign pre-ordered shoes from both Harvey Nichols and Bloomingdale's
