Antwerp fashion brand Essentiel will become one of the 5 brands fashion retailer Marka will bring to the Middle East soon. Essentiel's first store will open in December in Dubai.
Marka not only has a deal with Essentiel, but also with Sonia by Sonia Rykiel, Laurél, Weill and Berenice. The first stores, with one from Essentiel, will open this year and Marka hopes to have 35 stores in the region by 2020.
"We have secured key international brands that support our vision of becoming the premier retail operator in the UAE and across the region and generating long-term value for our shareholders. Each brand we partner with is carefully selected, so we are confident they will resonate with the refined tastes of modern women in this region", Jamal Al Hai (Chairman of the Marka Board of Directors) said.
