It promised plenty of discounts, competitions and entertainment and now Dubai Shopping Festival is delivering.

As part of the festivities, MOE will be giving 21 winners the chance to meet him after his performance.

The Fashion Central activation will take place at the shopping centre January 15-23. It has been created to give up-and-coming brands in Dubai the chance to “show off their new collections and introduce their looks to shoppers in a fashion conscious environment”.
