Dubai's Getting its Own Design District!
A new district dedicated to design and fashion is set to be built in Dubai, with an aim of creating employment opportunities and helping UAE designers.
The Dubai Design District will be located opposite the Business Bay area of Dubai and will look at developing Dubai’s fashion and design sectors as well as creating new employment opportunities.
It is hoped the district will help turn Dubai into the fashion capital of the Middle East and rival the fashion hubs of the world such as New York and Milan.
Fashion is a rapidly growing sector in Dubai thanks to the success of The Dubai Mall, which welcomed 65 million visitors last year.
