Brewing in the Kingdom of Bahrain is an innovative new retail concept that has caught our eye: Cactus District. Founded by Bahraini entrepreneur Zainab Al Ebrahim, Cactus District is a unique three-day seasonal pop-up event that brings together a hand-picked selection of high-end regional and international fashion, jewelry, home and beauty brands to cater to a fashion-forward lifestyle.
Every edition of Cactus District takes on a different theme which takes customers on a journey through the season’s hottest trends. A carefully curated palette of seasonally relevant prints and colors dictate the products showcased to create a chic, explorative style journey offers customers a distinct, new retail experience every edition.
Designed as a platform to foster innovation and nurture a creative community, previous editions of Cactus District brought together visionary talents from countries such as Bahrain, KSA, Kuwait, India, UAE and Spain; offering these designers and brands with the opportunity to engage with Bahrain’s increasingly style-conscious and culturally-aware consumers.
Following the success of the Ramadan and Summer editions, we are excited to announce that Cactus District is coming back this November with its first-ever autumn/winter edition. Taking on a moodier, bolder theme for the cooler months, the new edition will be based upon a rich palette of delicious mustard and deep coral hues punctuated with vibrant greenery and striking animal prints.
Speaking exclusively to BAZAAR, Cactus District’s Founder Zainab AlEbrahim comments, “This upcoming edition of Cactus District is the biggest so far in terms of space and number of participating brands. We are so excited as we are collaborating with one of the best interior design firms to help us bring our ideas and mood boards to life!
The designers and brands are all carefully handpicked to showcase the best of both local and regional talent.
She the added, "What we are looking for are unique and high-quality brands with fall/winter collections whether fashion, jewelry, or beauty to provide our guests with a unique shopping experience making it easier for them to update their wardrobe from summer to fall."
With a decidedly fashion-forward theme, more designers to discover and new experiential elements, we already have the dates for Cactus District’s Fall-Winter pop-up event marked on our calendars!
Cactus District’s autumn/winter pop-up event will take place from November 28-30, 2019 at The Orangery at Secret Garden in Adliya, Bahrain.
