House of Nomad, Madiyah Al Sharqi, L’Afshar, Taller Marmo, and a few other illustrious regional designers under the umbrella of Faux Consultancy Group are being hosted at Design 971, The Dubai Mall’s first-ever pop-up concept boutique that regularly highlights emerging young talent from the Middle East. You can expect to find these designers’ Spring/Summer 2016 and Ramadan capsule collections at the two-month-long summer pop-up. In addition to the previously mentioned designers, covetable labels like Dima Ayad, Andrea Wazen, Endemage, and Fatema Fardan are also taking part in this event. If you’re shopping for new seasonal threads or indulging in a new look for the upcoming Ramadan season, make sure a visit to Design 971 is at the top of your list.
