"Chic capital: Dubai is attempting to shift the fashion industry’s focus away from Europe and the US."The thing about that is, unless you are buying very "high end" (I use the term loosely) merchadise, many times second quality and off-brands are sold in Dubai as "the real deal" (and I'm not talking about Karama merchadise). For example, I have seen Gap Outlet, Old Navy, and Old Navy Outlet (all Gap, Inc. stores) sold here as "Gap" at Gap prices. It's a sham, and yet again, lining already greasy pockets.
