Born and raised in Dubai, Zahra Lyla is one of the region’s most loved fashion bloggers.
The graphic designer turned fashion content creator behind website justlyla.com has garnered a loyal following on social media platforms since launching her blog seven years ago.
The IT girl can often be found combing the shops at Mall of the Emirates in Dubai. “It’s my one-stop destination for everything I might need (or want!), from high-street fashion at Zara, to high-end labels such as Gucci and Burberry,” Zara told us. “I love the location as it has everything under one roof and isn't too big a mall that you can't navigate and walk around it easily.”
Zahra also visits Mall of the Emirates for a spot of pampering. “As well as fabulous fashion stores, MoE also has my favourite beauty brands – I shop at Sephora Dubai and go to get pampered at the new TNS location,” she revealed.
Here, Zahra shares her top new season picks from the Middle East’s leading shopping malls.
