Located in Galleria Mall Al Barsha, Gigi is a brand-new concept boutique offering a new retail experience showcasing regional brands and designers - and it's opening its doors on 25 May. 

With fashion, beauty, art, design, a home bakery espresso bar and chic outdoor garden all under one roof, Gigi is described as a “destination store where clients will meet friends, spend time and be able to shop from all the different categories that we offer in store”. I mean, you had us at home bakery espresso bar…

Gigi is putting a super-big focus on regional brands and designers, with their aim to “shed light on our talents in the regional and give them the opportunity to shine”. Curator Zeina Ladki has sourced exciting designers and collections including Kaftish, Mrs. Keepa, Beige and Jessica K. “The UAE is known to be the most attractive shopping destination, and the window to many creative concepts and new ideas and this is what Gigi is all about, innovation!” says Zeina, “We hope that the retail world in the UAE and Middle East will start believing in the talent in our region and give them the same opportunity to showcase their collections and shine in the same way we do with international brands”.

Going beyond that of a typical brick-and-mortar store Gigi is super-interactive, launching an jam-packed calendar of events including workshops and tutorials. As well an exciting brand portfolio, Gigi will host a rotation of key brand pop-ups, so there is always something new to cast your eyes (and credit cards) on.

Gigi opens on the 25th May with healthy and safety protocols in place, and an option of at home personal shopping. #MeetMeAtGigi
