Wouldn't it be amazing if there was a paradise island where fashionistas could gather and exude fabulousness together? Where famous designers could throw amazing parties and put on fashion shows exclusively for the island's residents, who live in couture villas with private beaches just steps from the best boutiques in the world? It sounds too good to be true, but it's not: Isla Moda is that fashion paradise. It's under construction in Dubai, natch, and Karl Lagerfeld is the first fashion designer to sign on to design a few "limited edition" homes there. He says in a press release:
"Dubai is a fashion bud on the verge of blossoming into the next fashion hub of the world … Isla Moda has tremendous potential to be the style icon of the future and I intend on driving the island to high style stardom," he added.
That "tremendous potential" includes a "style concierge" available to residents of Isla Moda for clothes, fragrances, and makeovers (there's also a design one to help you with your home-furnishing and decorating needs). If you can't afford one of Lagerfeld's houses, Isla Moda will also include a hotel with 250 rooms and serviced apartments. And here we thought retiring in California sounded like a nice idea.
Dubai Infinity Holdings is developing the project in line with its "mandate to fulfill unmet market needs." We don't know about you, but we sure can't think of an unmet market need that needed more fulfilling.
