The Galleria - Abu Dhabi's hottest new shopping destination

Marina , Khalidiya , Wahda and Abu Dhabi Mall are all great shopping malls in Abu Dhabi we have grown to visit at least once a week.One thing they do have in common is that they miss that little 'touch' of glam, haut de gamme luxury and nonchalance.

All you fashionistas' prayers have been answered a couple of months ago.
A new luxury shopping and dining destination developed by Gulf Related and Mubadala , The Galleria,opened its doors to redefine Abu Dhabi's retail platform.

Featuring more than 100 of the world’s most renowned retail outlets, The Galleria brings a new era of stylish and sophisticated shopping to the capital and the region.Situated on Al Maryah Island, home to the capital’s new CBD, The Galleria boasts spectacular waterfront views across the Abu Dhabi cityscape and elevates the city’s retail offering with one of the highest concentrations of luxury brands in the Middle East.

Fifty brands have chosen this new luxury destination to open their first stores in Abu Dhabi  These include international labels such as Boucheron, Celine, Diane von Furstenberg, Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs, Mulberry, Paul Smith, Tory Burch, Alexander McQueen, Moschino, Kenzo (which is set to open in February - Can't wait ) ,Thomas Pink, Pucci, Bottega Veneta, Balenciaga, Emporio Armani Caffe and Magnolia Bakery.

I was invited to attend the Official VIP Launch of the mall.
The night kicked off with a cocktail and introductory speech , which was then followed by a fashion show.
The models were impeccably styled by Teresa from , and featured an array of sport luxe ensembles by various brands.

For the rest of the night, In-stores events were aplenty.

 To celebrate the opening of its first store in Abu Dhabi, Moschino created 20 exclusive limited edition pieces. The sky to turquoise variation of blue is a lovely color and the Moschino's gold hardware is classical.
I made the most of the night , and purchased the Moschino belt I had my eye on for quite sometime.

Lanvin statement necklaces that read 'happy' , 'help' and 'love' are all the rage this season.
Street style savvy for sure !

How gorgeous is this Pucci jumpsuit? Also impeccably styled for the fashion show.

Instead of heading to Dubai this weekend, head to The Galleria and support Abu Dhabi's growing fashion platform!
