The event celebrated the opening of House of Fraser’s first international flagship store at the World Trade Centre Mall Abu Dhabi, and was one of the major highlights of a week-long activity promoting the best of British retail, luxury and design.

The event showcased highlights of House of Fraser’s Spring/Summer 2014 collections across women’s wear, menswear and children’s wear. The scenes included key pieces from the British brands available at House of Fraser including Victoria Beckham Denim, Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Markus Lupfer, Joseph and Kurt Geiger. Other looks showcased the local designer offerings to be found at House of Fraser including abayas from Ush and Whoop and evening wear from international brands including Carolina Herrera, See by Chloe and DKNY.
