Los Angeles, the city of the famous, the tanned, incredible vintage markets, cool boutiques and heaps of hip young fashion labels.

When Alia Korayem brought all of the above back from her stateside travels to sell in her new store West L.A. in the Sunset Mall, we were firm regulars from the get-go.

Fast forward a year and the boutique is still thriving and filled with hard-to find brands including Winter Kate by Nicole Richie, Wildfox and UNIF.


The cool kids one stop shop

West L.A’s clothes are all under a budget-friendly Dhs2,000, unusual for Dubai boutiques.

They opened the men’s store in February (also in Sunset Mall) and Alia recently released her first fashion collection, which was showcased at the store’s 1st birthday bash.
