Global Fashion Brands Go Local for Dubai

Posted on March 12, 2017 at 3:55 AM Comments comments (0)

In an era when brand loyalty is low and demands are high, it makes sense that customization has taken off. Shoppers can design their own Nike sneakers, Brooks Brothers suits, Burberry trench coats and Longchamp bags.

Global brands are hoping that customization will create a deeper connection for local markets. Plus, given that one-of-a-kind products have lower return rates and can fetch higher prices, it seems like a no-brainer. It’s no wonder the bespoke tailoring and localized customiztions are an eternal success story.

TAG Heuer, in partnership with Ahmed Seddiqi & Sons, captivated its Dubai audience by exhibiting its exquisitely crafted Muhammad Ali Middle East timepiece. The watch was unveiled in Doha earlier this month at the fourteenth edition of the Doha Jewellery and Watches Exhibition, which is regarded the most exclusive in the world for HNWI to view and purchase unique watches, jewellery, diamonds and precious stones. To mark the Dubai debut of the Muhammad Ali Arabic Dial creation, TAG Heuer organized an exhilarating boxing class to celebrate. 

Payal New York, custom diamond jewelry tailor based in Dubai and sponsor of Harper's Bazaar's Best Dressed understand the importance of bespoke customization for her clients. In Dubai, where glamour reigns all, Payal specializes in extravagant jewelry for the Dubain socialite. 

From cultural adaptations to personal tailoring, customization trends are breaking through the Dubai market.

How Dubai Influencers Are Changing The PR Landscape

Posted on January 25, 2017 at 7:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Brands are relying more and more on social influencers to get their name out. While magazines, radio and other traditional PR outlets are still necessary to help build brand authority and credibility, social media is now mandatory to reach the masses.

Traditional publishing houses are also adapting to the needs of the rapidly changing digital media landscape. ITP has now set up ITP Live, a segment of ITP solely dedicated to social influencers. This is in a way institutionalising the power of social media influencers despite all the frustrations of journalists and PR practitioners. Can this lead to the regularisation of influencer industry rates? More proven case studies are showing that they are indeed affecting the purchasing decisions of consumers. We can now see agencies aligning with big influencers to help get the word out.


@wdoha gained over 1,000,000 social impressions from their Insta-Walk activation, fashion show hosted by social media sensation @falmomen.

@liveentertainmentksa activated a huge influencer campaign to reach the Saudi market. This was the first live event of its kind to enter Riyadh and Jeddah. Social media influencers such as @saudigamer and @kh_abulaban helped the show penetrate to the KSA audience, resulting in a two-week SOLD OUT concert series!

With the rising surge of social media influencers such as @guyindubai and @falmomen, we utilise this medium to serve our clients' needs, but the challenge of finding better and more authoritative touch points in the social media sphere still remains.

What is the future of PR and digital marketing? We know that print is dying and the reliance on influencers is growing. We strive to ensure that brands are aligned with the right influencers who can promote an authentic message.
