Hotel Moda - a fashion hotel with about 250 rooms and serviced apartments.

Isla Moda is apparently the first dedicated fashion island in the world. Does DIH meant the first in the world, or the first in The World by Nakheel?

Lagerfeld villas in Dubai

Postby shawarma » 14 Jul 2008, 14:50

Karl Lagerfeld (which could be German for "field of lager"), a fashion designer that some people have heard of, will design 80 Chanel branded villas for Isla Moda. They should smell nice then. He will be doing the interiors so no need to worry about the outside of your shack looking like something peculiar strolling down a fashion show catwalk.

Mr Lagerfeld said "The discovery of contemporary mediums of expression has allowed me to pursue my interest in art, beauty, architecture and progressive cultural exchange. Dubai is a fashion bud on the verge of blossoming into the next fashion hub of the world. The city is alive with culture and rich in personality, making a perfect place for aesthetic, fashion and design to flourish."

Ahhhh, yes. Exactly :shock: .
