Dubai's Mall of the Emirates to launch new 'Fashion District'
Set to open February 17
This year the Mall of Emirates will undergo an extensive redevelopment which will include a new 'Fashion District', luxury retail, unique dining concepts, a sports and leisure precinct and an expansion of VOX cinemas.
The first phase of the project - 'Evolution 2015', is the Dhs100 million 'Fashion District', which will feature more than 30 contemporary fashion brands with a new collection of stores and several cafes which will be unveiled by February 17 this year.
By 2015, a quarter of the mall will be completely new for shoppers, including exclusive brands making their UAE debut and brand transformations by existing retailers.
Dimitri Vazelakis, the executive managing director for shopping malls for Majid Al Futtaim Properties said, "Evolution 2015 is Mall of the Emirates' most ambitious project to-date with a total investment of AED 1 billion. The onset of phase one, which will create a unique fashion and lifestyle destination, will complement our existing luxury and mid-market fashion offer."
