The world's fashion elite will be booking their luxury Abu Dhabi holidays with the World Luxury Fashion Week set to take place at the Jumeirah Abu Dhabi hotel at Etihad Towers this November. This will be the first of what will become an annual event as Abu Dhabi continues to establish itself as one of the top fashion capitals in the world with its very own luxury shopping district - the Avenue inspiring some of the biggest names in the industry to expand their operations in the UAE city.

The world's fashion elite expected to book Abu Dhabi holidays in time for World Luxury Fashion Week

World Luxury Fashion Week is heading to Abu Dhabi this November- perfect for those fashion-loving travellers planning luxury Abu Dhabi holidays. The event will be hosted from 25th – 28th November 2012 at what is considered to be one of the top fashionable Abu Dhabi hotels- the Jumeriah hotel at Etihad Towers.

World Luxury Fashon Week is set to be a veritable who’s who of the fashion industry with some the top Haute Couture designers showcasing their collections. Some of the designers scheduled to appear include Carolina Herrera NY, Ermanno Scervino, Hervé Léger, Paule Ka ‘Black Carpet’ Collections, Walid Atallah, DAS Collection and Jean Paul Gaultier. The high brow fashion on display could only be bested by the fine dining that will be provided by the Jumeriah hotel with the fashion show taking place over a five-course feast prepared by Jumeirah;s internationally recognised executive chefs.

As the emirate continuosly develops its luxury tourism offer, Abu Dhabi holidays are quickly becoming synonymous with fashion. The UAE city continues to build an international reputation as the ultimate holiday destination for those fashion-forward travellers planning a shopping spree at some of the world’s premium brand retailers. Given its strengthened strategic position as one of the top fashion capitals of the world with many of the major luxury retailers announcing expansion plans in Abu Dhabi, it comes as no surprise that this year’s Luxury Fashion Week will be the first of what is set to become an annual affair.

For many industry insiders, it is only fitting that this auspicious event be hosted at Jumeriah’s Etihad Towers hotel, set against the backdrop of Abu Dhabi’s first luxury shopping district- the Avenue at Eithad Towers. Doris Greif the general manager of the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers had this to say of hosting the event in a recent interview, “It is appropriate for Jumeirah at Etihad Towers to play host to this significant fashion event, both in terms of the hotel’s commitment to luxury craftsmanship, design and quality urban lifestyle experiences, but also as part of the Etihad Towers multiplex with its newly opened luxury retail and fashion Avenue at Etihad Towers. Following the opening of this wonderful venue, which is right on our doorstep, the Etihad Towers is unequivocally the leading luxury fashion and lifestyle destination within the United Arab Emirate’s capital. While this fact is well known among Abu Dhabi residents, the hosting of such an event will help spread that awareness further afield internationally, and this is naturally a positive thing”.
