MOE FASHION LIVE LOUNGE – Central Galleria
MOE Fashion Live opened today, March 26, with an insightful talk by molecular cosmetics scientist and dermatologist to Hollywood stars, Dr Barbara Strum, on her popular skincare solutions and anti-ageing products using superfood Purslane. She also introduced a new product line designed specifically for Middle Eastern skin.
The Central Galleria will come alive daily with fashion shows set to pumping beats, and models dancing and interacting with the crowd. Guests will be treated to different looks from the Spring/Summer ’19 collections by the mall’s luxury brands, styled by regional fashion icons.
Mall of the Emirates will also surprise shoppers with a roaming runway show that will showcase this season’s trends. Shoppers can take pictures of the look they love as the models parade around the mall and share it on social media for a chance to win the outfit they’ve captured.
On March 28, Lebanese singer, composer and TV personality Ragheb Alama will make a guest appearance in the Central Galleria during the Harvey Nichols - Dubai men’s fashion show at 7pm. The award-winning artist has given chart-topping numbers such as “Ya rait” and “Alby Asheq’ha”, the latter being the first Arabic song in history to be made into a music video.
Arab superstar Carole Samaha will be taking the Central Galleria stage for ‘MOE Fashion Live’ on March 29. The multi-award-winning songstress, who has more than 2.1 million followers on social media, will make an appearance during Etoile La Boutique's fashion show at 7pm.
