Gina Fashion Shop in Dubai Mall
Gina Fashion Shop in Dubai Mall – The first flagship store outside the United Kingdom has finally arrived in Dubai!
Established in 1954 in London by master shoemaker Mehmet Kurdash who had the dream to make glamorous handmade shoes, named the company after his muse, movie icon Gina Lollobrigida. Throughout his life, Mehmet dedicated himself to beauty and through his life never compromised on quality, crafting his designs out of the most beautiful skins.
Designing couture shoes has been a family trait since 1893. Today Mehmet’s sons, Attila, Aydin and Altan Kurdash are the combined talent who skilfully create by hand, the lasts and heels, using skills passed down from generation to generation. The brother’s interweaving roles contribute to the rare luxury of being involved in the design, manufacture, technology and retail of all GINA shoes and bags.
In 1991 the very first GINA boutique was opened and proved to be a resounding success. The increasing need for more space led to the acquisition in 1994 of the Sloane Street boutique in London’s fashionable Knightsbridge. A decadent, luxurious, beautiful gallery for the shoes and handbags, the comfortable and eclectic interior is perfectly sympathetic to the elegant, sumptuous GINA styling.
GINA’s bespoke shoes have become the latest must have indulgence of the fashion elite. When GINA opened their couture salon in Old Bond Street in 1999 – media hysteria soon followed over their astonishing accessories. In particular, their £18,000 alligator mules finished with 18-carat white gold buckles and inlaid with 36 princess cut diamonds. These slippers are so remarkably ostentatious that the Millennium issue of The Guinness Book of Records acknowledged them as the world’s most expensive slippers.
In June 2009 the first flagship store outside the United Kingdom was opened in the Fashion Avenue of the prestigious Dubai Mall, the most incredible shopping destination in the Middle East. This flagship store reflects the existing GINA image, making a powerful statement as the ultimate exclusive shoe destination in the visually spectacular Dubai Mall. In March 2011, the fourth GINA store opened its doors in the Mall of Emirates, Dubai, an International celebrated destination for the fashion elite, and in April 2013, another flagship GINA store opened its doors in Prestige, Avenues Mall, Kuwait. Avenues Mall is the latest addition to the ultimate luxury shopping experience in Kuwait.
The brothers’ mission is to have GINA represented in luxury department stores and boutiques worldwide, as well as key GINA flagship stores.
The stunning styling and imaginative use of cut, colour, leathers, fabrics and striking detail has caught the eye of the fashionista. GINA footwear has been gracing the feet of supermodels and leading actresses as well as high society celebrities, royal families and an ever-growing following of international stars.
