With the autumn/winter 2017 runway collections now in-store, Dubai’s Mall of the Emirates is hosting its annual World of Fashion event from October 10 to 14. The event will give shoppers and browsers a chance to interact with regional and international style experts in a range of creative spaces.

In the mall’s Central Galleria, the curated rooms within the House of Bazaar installation, for instance, are devoted to fashion, beauty and wellness. The custom-created rooms take the form of The Closet, which pays homage to all things high-fashion, including labels such as Dolce & Gabbana, Chanel, Fendi, Prada and Hermès. Next, check out the beauty Boudoir, where Ralph Lyeif and Emmanuelle Geoffrey, make-up artists from Dior, will conduct demonstrations and offer one-on-one cosmetics consultations. The Wellness Retreat is the place to be to learn nutritional tips and tricks, healthy recipes and the latest news from the world of fitness.

On October 10, celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin will demonstrate her signature cuts and blow-outs.
