For five whole days, Yas Mall will be transformed into a bespoke Interior Design venue as Colin & Justin give interactive workshops, using products and furniture from Yas retailers, including The One, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, PB Teen, West Elm, Home Centre, Debenhams, Muji and ACE Hardware. A home mock-up set up at Town Square will showcase different retailers every day and will offer visitors the chance to learn how to decorate their homes, using the latest accessories to update their interiors with a pop of style and personal expression.
Giving the ‘Fashion Hits Home’ event a Middle Eastern feel, Colin & Justin will be joined by influencers such as Hala Abdulla, Mthayel Ali and Mariam Yehya and Naomi D’Souze for workshops showing guests how they can merge personality, style and fashion flare into the interiors of their home. The workshops will be set up at Town Square (attendance is free) and all the products used in the demonstrations will be available to purchase immediately within Yas Mall.
Shatha Al Romaithy, Marketing Manager of Yas Mall, commented ‘We are delighted to welcome Colin & Justin to the Middle East for the first time and to our Fashion Hits Home event at Yas Mall. From 3-7 October, Yas Mall visitors will have a chance to learn how a few simple tips on interior design can help transform their living space with each season and inject their home a touch of personal style. This event allows us to showcase the strong range of amazing home related brands here at Yas Mall and on Yas Island, starting with the largest The One store in the world, the largest IKEA in the Middle East, the only West Elm in Abu Dhabi, and the biggest Debenhams outside of the UK, meaning we can give our visitors an unparalleled choice of brands that will help them restyle their home.’
