29 February 2016Three new outlets from fuller figure brand operating under Marka PJSC open across Dubai, Sharjah and Ras Al Khaimah
Dubai, United Arab Emirates - Fashion conscious women seeking style in the 14+ range now have three new outlets dedicated to catering to their fashion requirements in the UAE. City Chic, the leading global plus size brand, is opening a trio of new stores in the country, making its popular range of plus size clothing available to customers in the region for the first time.
Brought to the UAE by Marka Holding, the UAE's first publicly listed retail operator, City Chic's three new stores are conveniently located in Al Naeem Mall, Ras Al Khaimah, Festival City, Dubai and Sahara Centre, Sharjah.
"We are delighted to have partnered with City Chic to offer the latest fashion styles for the region's discerning plus-size ladies. This exciting brand brings glamour, elegance and bold sophistication to fuller-figured women across the region and we are proud to elevate the quality of this niche fashion segment across the region," said Nick Peel, CEO, Marka.
Phil Ryan, President of City Chic said, "City Chic was established to bring the very best designed fashion garments to plus size women who have previously only had a minimal choice of uninspiring basics. Our philosophy bucks the trend of conservative and staid plus size styles typified by plain t-shirts and leggings in stretchy materials and dark colours."
"We pride ourselves on our flattering cuts across an array of dresses, tops, outerwear, denim, intimates and swimwear. We aim to push the boundaries in the plus size segment and in the process, ensure that curvier ladies always feel confident, sassy and superbly attired - whatever the time and occasion," he said.
City Chic has a built a strong and loyal clientele which has taken it to become Australia's leading fashion retailer in sizes 14+. Since 2006 the company has expanded its portfolio from seven to over 100 stores, with the brand now having a presence in the USA, New Zealand and South Africa as well as the Middle East. Whether providing a black dress for an evening soirée, a new outfit for turning heads in the club or an everyday number that typifies Hollywood glam, City Chic's intention is to make statured women look and feel great and in doing so, stake its place as the premium purveyor of striking couture options for plus-size fashionistas.
