If designer bargain hunting was once a shameful secret pencilled into our fashion address books, it now qualifies to be there in bold. And you haven’t been to The Outlet Village (and, most notable, Priceless) yet then you’re missing out.
On arrival at the mall, which is located on Sheikh Zayed Road between Dubai and Abu Dhabi, guests are greeted with handsome interiors with stone archways and cobbled streets that lend an air of Italian sophistication (the design was inspired by the medieval Tuscan hill town of San Gimignano, after all).
Nestled in the nook of the far right is Priceless, the Al Tayer shopping outlet is home to stores for everything from Bloomingdale’s to Harvey Nichols to Ounass, all stocked full of discounted pieces. It is easily the best place in Dubai for designer discounts – the list basically reads like a who’s who of all the label’s you’ve had your eye on. Not from the current season, granted, but they carry all the quality and lasting love of any high fashion purchase at a fraction of the guilt.
That, ladies, is what I call a win-win.
