I made my way to the UCB store, nervous about trying my hand at dressing the Benetton window display at the Dubai Mall- After I was done thinking, rethinking and being distracted by stuff at the store, I ended up selecting a huge heap of clothes which I meant to shortlist later. Afterall, it was to be the big Christmas display and I couldn’t afford to make a mess of it! Ah, pressure pressure!
I then realized that making up my mind about the outfits was the easiest part. The tough part was getting the mannequins to wear them- Dismantling, struggling with the limbs and locks and fixing it all back.. whew!
I picked a slick tan leather skirt and boots for the first mannequin- I went with the light winter look, ideal for Dubai. I also threw in a faux fur handbag and some copper and suede bling in the mix, for a chic, Christmas party look. Speaking of Christmas, the second mannequin wore a very merry look in a white polo neck top and checked trousers ( with these lovely suede knee patches), a cherry red scarf thrown around the neck and looped at the waist with a slim red belt. The look was completed with a neat handbag and red suede pumps.
So that was a bunch of fun! Hope you liked the display! Happy Holidays and Happy Shopping!
