Dubai: Emaar has opened the doors to the massive extension of Dubai Mall, adding ample retail space to the world’s largest shopping destination.

The newly completed high-end section has expanded the mall’s Fashion Avenue and now houses a number of luxury brands, including Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, Hermes, Rolex and Cartier, among many others.

It was earlier announced that the expansion will add another one million square feet of built-up area and more than 150 brands, as well as restaurants, to Dubai Mall.

So far, most of the shops that have opened are fashion brands, although a few food and beverage outlets, including  L’eto and Starbucks, are now operational. The fountain-facing restaurants are still closed.

The extension can be accessed through the main atrium of the old Fashion Avenue, just opposite Armani Café on the ground floor.

Three levels of the extension have been opened so far, with some spaces at the top floor designated for perfume shops, and first and ground floor for fine jewellery. Spaces for dining and fashion are spread across all levels.
