In a city obsessed with the “new” and the “next big thing”, where access to the latest in fashion, technology, and design are available at the local mall, entrepreneur Maha Abdul Rasheed flaunted conventional wisdom by opening up the stellar vintage destination, Bambah Boutique, in 2014.
Since its inception, Rasheed’s beautifully curated selection of rare vintage finds has made an impact on the way the elite of the region dress. Instead of showing up to an exclusive party and finding three people wearing the same look, you’re guaranteed originality when you show up in a Bambah find. The success of Bambah led Rasheed to launch her own vintage-inspired line of clothing, and loyal shoppers showed up to events by her original designs in droves. In fact, Bambah’s popularity has crossed over from the realm of the regional to be embraced by an international cadre of fans. At the IWC gala in Geneva last night, supermodel Karolina Kurkova showed up to the red carpet event in a crocheted, off-shoulder black Bambah “It” dress from the Spring/Summer 2016 collection, joining the ranks of other fashion lovers like Tabitha Simmons, Natalia Shustova, and Farah Abdelaziz who also favor the dress.
If you want to cop Kurkova’s look, head to Bambah at 142 Jumeirah Beach Road in Dubai where you can snag the dress for AED 1,850.
