She’s expecting a baby, she has a full time job at a private company, she runs a blog, and she always dreamed to be a fashion designer and start her own line in fashion, so she has to work even more solidly and painstakingly for over three years to make that one dream happen. Good news is that dreams do in fact come true, our friend Hala Abu Al Hasan has just opened her fashion boutique, Luscious, at Al Tijaria Tower in Kuwait City in such a fabulous event.
Luscious Boutiue gives fashionistas unique designs of Haute Couture (exclusive custom-fitted clothing) and chic dresses as well as accessorizing them.
“We can customize your dress depending on your style and the colors of your preference. Every person has his own style so this brand is all about delighting our customers and listening to their opinions when it comes to fashion, so feel unique and look lusciously glamorous and fabulous!” says Hala.
Address: Al Tijaria Tower Mezzanine 1, Al Soor Street, Kuwait City.
Marie Claire magazine has shared with us their behind the scenes for their cover photo shoot with young Kuwaiti swimmer Fay AlSultan in New York for October issue. It’s nice how Faye Sultan manages to keep up with fashion and maintain her sport activity and physique as well.
I wanted to buy new t-shirts and hoodies for the winter so I headed to the Avenues and saw that my favorite clothing store Geddes & Gillmore was just opened, it’s from Holland I remember I bought some stuff from them when I visited Amsterdam. Their clothing style is similar to Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister and suitable for young individuals who want stylish casual wear for relatively lower price.
They are located at the Avenues Phase I nearby Deer & Dear.
This month is all about fashion, several luxury boutiques have opened; Miu Miu, Gucci, Carolina Herrera, Harrys of London and I just saw at Al Hamra Luxury Center that Yves Saint Laurent boutique has opened at ground floor near Behbehani Luxury boutique. Enjoy Fashnionistas!
I passed by Kuwait International Fair and saw the watches and perfumes expos have just begun, there were some good offers so if you are looking for a sport or luxury watch or a perfume then this is the right time.
Where: Kuwait International Fair Hall#5,6,7,8 – Mishref 6th Ring Road
A couple weeks back I guessed that Miu Miu boutique will open around this time and guess what fashionistas? I’m now in 360 mall and I’m seeing the staff of the boutique are preparing for the opening, I asked when exactly they will open? They said in about two hours (12:00 PM noon), cool. It’s located opposite to Bottega Veneta nearby Prada.
This is their first boutique in Kuwait, I’ll try to take some shots of the once it’s fully opened.
Update: I received some shots from the opening, see below.
I was at Marina Mall this early morning and spotted staff from AlShaya removing the hoarding for Topshop in preparation for opening, it’s located in the same place in the same location of old Boots Pharmacy. The other branch is located at the Avenues Mall.
I was at Al Hamra Luxury Center and saw that the hoarding for GUCCI boutique was removed in preparation for the opening, it’s whopping big I guess their collection will be very large too. I’m noticing that new luxury boutiques in Kuwait are becoming bigger, a good example of that is Prada in 360 Mall, maybe they realized that Kuwait is a big market for luxury goods?
Update: Gucci boutique is now officially open, I had a little tour inside and it was really big, the biggest in GCC I believe, that’s not everything; the interior looked really exquisite and there were screens displaying their latest collections, the way they displayed their collections is also admirable.
