• The launch of D3 brought with it the opening of our own store in the district, AAVVA Fashion, which we would definitely consider our biggest achievement in the past year. Along with that, being part of Swarovski’s Sparkling Couture Exhibition in Dubai this year – which showcased designers from all over the Middle East, South Asia and Australia – really put AAVA out there as a brand.
• There’s no substitute for hard work, and we clock-up an average of 14 hours a day. A typical day starts at 6am at the gym, and ends with us spending our evenings relaxing at home. Being consistent with our work and leading a great team has really helped bring out our vision into the market.
• Our most prized possession is our knowledge. Being pioneers in everything we do, we believe that everything we have achieved over the years has come from being kind to others.
• We’ve been in Dubai seven years now, and have grown to greatly admire His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. Everything in the UAE is magic, and we love life here. What he has accomplished in the past decade is truly miraculous.
