Six exciting destinations on the web, all originating in the Middle East, have just made online shopping even more addictive than it already was. Scroll through to discover what they are and what each has to offer.

The Luxury Arcade

From homegrown brands House of Nomad and Madiyah Al Sharqi to one-of-a-kind merch and the most coveted streetwear brands like Fenty Puma x Rihanna, The Luxury Arcade has fast established itself as the definitive shopping destination in Abu Dhabi to mix street and luxury with perfection. Now, these pieces are much easier to get your hands on with the launch of its online platform, which offers free delivery within the UAE.

The Fashion Vault

Founded by two Emiratis, Shatha Ahmad and Hunoof Hamad, The Fashion Vault is one of the few multi-brand concept stores to support local talent within the region. It has recently ventured online to increase its reach and provide greater accessibility to its unique and fun edit that covers ready-to-wear, accessories, beauty, and lifestyle. Here, expect to uncover hard-to-find brands such as Mario BadescuStyle Nanda, and The Kylie Shop – if you’re lucky.

You Boutique

The UAE’s newest e-commerce destination, You Boutique, focuses on niche Australian brands and current trends on a budget. Founder Chloe Grace Allan established an Australian-focused site in the UAE in order to fill a gap in the market, delivering unique looks to fashion-conscious online shoppers that don’t break the bank.

The Modist

Arriving just as the modest fashion revolution began spreading across the globe, Ghizlan Guenez launched The Modist, catching the wave at just the right moment. As the name might suggest, the website stocks a carefully edited selection of modest fashions that range in price from affordable to aspirational. It also regularly includes modest fashion icons like Halima Aden in its editorials and features influencers like Maria Alia in its bespoke magazine.

Ounass

Ounass, one of the Middle East’s latest shopping destinations, is backed by the expertise and business excellence of the Al Tayer Group, which has been introducing high-end luxury brands to the region since 1979. You’ll love this huge selection of regional and international brands, same-day shipping in Dubai, and appealing editorials.

Boutique Nomads

We love visiting concept stores in person because that sort of immersive environment feels more like an experience than a shopping expedition. Boutique Nomads’ goal is to bring that level of conceptual feel to the online realm, with products that celebrate outdoor living, Los Angeles-cool editorials, and shoppable sections like “Brighten Up”, “BBQ Picnic”, and “Inspire Me”. Every item on the site is selected by founder Katrin Strunz, which adds a feeling of exclusivity to the shopping process.
