Evening wear shopping at Boutique1
You’ll never run out of fashion boutiques in Dubai. In fact, if you named them all, you would run out of breath trying. Some boutiques focus on look-at-me costume fashion. Some have a fetish for vintage items. Some almost exclusively stock budding local designers.
But out of all of them, very few actually stand out in terms of a comprehensive range of designer collections from casual wear to work wear to evening wear.
UAE-based Boutique1 is the brand that comes to mind – we’re loving them not just for their A-Z designer rolodex, but especially for their evening wear collections. You know what they say, you can have all the statement blazers in the world, but you will never be a true-blue society gal if you don’t have an up-to-date wardrobe of evening gowns and accessories.

But Boutique1’s competitive edge isn’t about just any brand of gown – it’s about being the exclusive the retailer of Elie Saab, one of contemporary fashion’s most important designers when it comes to sophisticated dresses that communicate femininity and elegance and healthy dose of individuality. Elie Saab has created a signature for floaty floor-length numbers worthy of being worn to the Oscars, and it’s hard to argue with that.
Boutique1’s flagship boutique is located at The Walk in JBR, with shops at Mirdiff City Centre and Mall of the Emirates and in Beirut’s Central District on Park Avenue. You can also browse their online store (and place your order) at boutique1.com.
Boutique1 also has a dedicated evening wear boutique on their e-commerce site, which boasts of a drool-worthy array of designer gowns, jewellery, accessories, clutches and shoes: http://www.boutique1.com/boutiques/eveningwear
