I attended Harvey Nichols Kuwait's VIP preview event last night, in which they celebrated the arrival of the multi-brand luxury store to the Avenues Phase 3.
They really went all out with the celebration, live music performances, drinks and canapés were serves, models dresses in evening gowns, the night was just perfect. And as I mentioned in my previous post here, the place is HUUUGE! 10,000 m2 (107,000 ft2) to be exact! Spreading on two floors. That's almost double the size of Debenhams in Phase I. So expect to spend at least 2 hours browsing the store.the The 2-Level store space is modern, bright, and very classy. I particularly enjoyed the various interior details throughout and the stunning chandeliers in the lavish fitting room areas. If you follow me on instagram (@confashions) you would see in one of the photos I have posted these amazing metallic streamers above the escalator space. Beautiful.
What was mind boggling to me was that by the time I was about to leave the store, some pieces were already sold out! Like Osman brocade cape jacket and Isabel Marant boots, so it was a good thing that I bought what I wanted on the spot. And that's what I kept telling people who I bumped into during the event, if you see something that you really like, buy it NOW. Obsessed much?
This is a gorgeous new addition to K-town's shopping scene. I just hope that I'll still be able to find parking easily the next couple of days with all of the new foot traffic they expect. I'll leave you now with some highlights of the event.
