Visit an artisan marketplace showcasing works by local creatives this weekend
Walk home with bags of unique items, clothes, custom creations and more…
There’s no doubt that Dubai is packed with a number of people honing a number of creative talents. Their creations vary and range from handicrafts to household ornaments, items of clothing, jewellery and more. Now, unless you happen to see these items as you scroll through social media or at a friend’s house, you will never know about them.
Thankfully though, popular Facebook group That Dubai Girl has launched a new concept called The Makers Market DXB where Dubai creatives have the opportunity to show off their handmade products.
The market takes place this weekend on Saturday, September 18 at Dusit Thani Dubai in the Grand Ballroom. It runs from 11am to 5pm.
The best news is that’s it’s free entry for visitors.
Here are some of the creators you can find at the market
For fashionistas, Timeless Wardrobe will be at the event with their up-cycled clothes. For fans of vintage fashion, Fashion Rerun have it in abundance.
