Dubai for a while now is being seen as a fashion hub of the Middle East with a large choice of high-street fashion apparel and accessories available throughout the city. But beneath all of the glitz and glamour of designer brands lies a raging and exciting young fashion scene. A melting pot of nationalities, Dubai truly is an upcoming city of untapped talent.
The fashion scene is mushrooming and young designers are rising to create their own labels. With the cost of retail space increasing and with extremely limited options designers are in desperate need of dedicated spaces where they can easily showcase and sell their creations. Thus ‘Flea to Chi’ was born.
Pink Pepper a local boutique set up by Janis D’ souza and Soni Sajnani two years ago conceptualized Flea to Chi and aims to make it the ‘largest’ monthly fashion flea market and lounge event in Dubai.
With most outdoor venues gradually opening up in October, Chi Garden was the first option for Pink Pepper and work has begun to bring it to life again on Saturday, 18th October with sequined stalls and the city’s hippest people.

Flea to Chi will present one of the largest collections of the hottest emerging fashion designers from the UAE. It will be the place for fashionistas and fashion lovers to be in fashion heaven as they spend a stylish evening at Chi Garden soaking up the latest in trends. It will be the venue for other designers, buyers, the fashion-savvy and for anyone who loves to shop to get more than a peek at the latest trends.
