Dubai is the place for fashionistas and shoppers to update their wardrobe with the new season’s hottest trends and new styles. Starting from 10 February, Spring/Summer ‘17 collections will hit the shelves of stores and boutiques across the emirate. From Cavalli to Coach, Marc Jacobs to Michael Kors, Topshop to Tommy Hilfiger, shoppers can purchase the latest trends, hot off the catwalks, at the city’s leading shopping malls.
