You may have heard of the opulence of the 7 star Burj Al Arab, the tallest structure (building, tower, and whatever else you can think of) on Earth the Burj Dubai, and all sorts of biggest, best, greatest and other superlatives.
Now even in terms of consumerism for the elites, UAE leads the world.
I found this excerpt interesting
“WHO IS CURRENTLY BUYING DESIGNER BRANDS?
One in four global consumers (21) said they currently buy designer brands.
Currently, three in seven (31%) of consumers in UAE and Hong Kong say they buy Gucci-branded products. The small nations of UAE and Hong Kong are the two most famous shopping meccas on earth and it’s no surprise that their shopaholic, image-conscious citizens are among the biggest fans of luxury goods today. Their geographical location also means they benefit directly from “shopping tourism” – Dubai attracts the wealthy shopping elite from neighboring Saudi Arabia and Hong Kong attracts the new wealth from China. “Shopping is a way of life in these countries and luxury brands are an essential part of the population’s wardrobe, even if it comes in the form of a key chain,” said Dodd.
Consumers in Hong Kong are currently the most likely to buy Gucci, Burberry and Louis Vuitton more than any other country. UAE consumers topped global rankings for currently buying Christian Dior, Versace, YSL, Givenchy and Calvin Klein.”
UAE is fantastic, just mind boggling!
