A panel discussion will take place on the opening night, following which the exhibition will run for two months. The show is being held in collaboration with London-based art advisory platform, Artvisor.
Catering to all budgets, items range from Dh100 to thousands of dirhams. The focus is on emerging designers and Nazim keeps a keen eye out for unique brands that her fashion-forward thinking customers will love.What’s more, a sale is currently under way until 31 October featuring discounts onselected lines, making The Edit a must-visit venue for fashion-loving bargain hunters.
