The Dubai Government has announced a new project dedicated to developing Dubai’s fashion, design and luxury sectors. The ‘Dubai Design District,’ situated adjacent to the Business Bay area, will be developed as a full service commercial hub for design industry- related organisations, brands, and supporting enterprises within the value chain.
The design district will be operated by Tecom Investments, a subsidiary of Dubai Holding. It will feature a custom built creative community that will encompass purpose built commercial and retail facilities for established and emerging designers, design institutes, waterfront promenade, convention centre and event venues and related academic institutions.
According to the Dubai Government, The Dubai Design District will be a vital part of the process as it looks to deliver against the objectives set out in its Tourism Vision 2020, and it will provide an additional key element in Dubai’s bid to host Expo 2020. The design district is aimed at creating more home-grown designers, and the district’s creative community will serve UAE nationals and expatriates showing a keen interest not just in consuming fashion, design, and luxury goods and services, but also in the development of their own design and creative skills.
