Despite your brand consciousness, if you are a smart buyer, you should know where to find the best deals.
Below we have listed top five shopping destinations where you can get luxury fashion labels at a discount:
1. Dubai Shopping Festival
The fashion industry in Dubai is dominated by luxury and high-end brands. Dubai Shopping Festival (DSF), which occurs every year between December and February, is the best time to buy branded items for less. DSF usually offers massive discounts – up to 90 percent – at over 3,000 outlets.
During this season, Dubai will be packed with entertainment, fireworks displays, fashion shows, and mega sales that will surely entice tourists to visit and enjoy the pleasant weather and mild winter weather.
2. Brands for Less
You can choose from a wide variety of apparels presented by famed commercial brands such as Ralph Lauren, Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole, Dockers, and DKNY at incredibly low prices.
There are also Adidas, Puma, and Reebok sportswear at throwaway prices ranging from Dh29 to Dh59 for shorts and shirts. As well as home décor, perfumes, cosmetics, and electronics, there are amazing deals to be had.
I almost completely spend my leisure time browsing the MarkaVIP app, which features classic and modern timepieces from Burberry to Gucci, Tag Heuer to Versace. In this app, you can purchase a brand new Gucci Chronograph Waterproof watch for only Dh2,250 instead of Dh4,500 in a store.
This watch is currently available at a 50% discount, but watch out for their flash sales every time for further savings. It is possible to pre-select the items that you want and save them for future purchases. You can save money or grab a Coach bag, Gucci belt, or anything you fancy at a huge discount.
It is not uncommon for them to have great deals for three hours only – up to 80 percent off – so be patient and wait until that flash sale before you buy.
4. The Luxury Closet
From Chanel to Chopard, Dior to Dolce and Gabbana, Hermes to Louis Vuitton, it sells mostly pre-loved luxury items. The store offers a wide selection of branded clothes, shoes, accessories, and high-end watches from Cartier, Omega, Rolex, and Hublot.
Originally priced at Dh5,031, you can get a Saint Laurent Paris, Black Tailor wool Blazer here for just Dh537, an 89 percent discount.
A pair of Jimmy Choo Metallic silver slip-on sneakers usually costs Dh2,300, but here you can get one for only Dh549—that’s a 75 percent discount.
5. The Outlet Village
As The Outlet Village offers countless high-end retail brands under one roof, you might spend the entire day shopping.
Designer clothes, cosmetics, perfumes, shoes, belts, watches, electronics, and household products can all be found here for a great price. Pricesless has a great collection of Emporio Armani shirts and pants, Alexander McQueen shoes, Dolce & Gabbana bags, and more.
The Deals offered you the best price on your Lacoste shirt and Gucci sneakers at 70% off. Other renowned labels offering massive discounts include Roberto Cavalli, Hugo Boss, Carolina Herrera, and others.
