It’s time to reach deep for your inner child. The Dubai-based, multi-brand boutique Sauce has partnered with bespoke designer doll brand Dumyé for a chic and charitable collaboration to support START—a Dubai-based, non-profit organization that runs art workshops for underprivileged and special needs children across the Middle East and India.
Middle East designer brands including Arwa Al Banawi, Dima Ayad, Reem Al Kanhal, Mochi, and House of Nomad, along with Style.com/Arabia – DDFC Fashion Prize finalists Zayan the Label, Reemami, and Rami Kadi will all design bespoke garments for the dolls to support the charitable initiative. The dolls will also don miniature creations from international labels such as Self-Portrait, Notte by Marchesa, Markus Lupher, and Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, to name a few.
All the hand-made dolls will be showcased at the Dubai Mall from March 20th until April 3rd and will then go up for auction at a private soirée held on April 6th. Backed by Dubai Tourism, Burj Khalifa, and The Dubai Mall, the project will see the stylish toys photographed in their bespoke outfits and styled around Dubai shopping, bowling, and sightseeing. Limited-edition prints of the photos will be available for purchase with all proceeds benefiting START.
