Lila Dishes for The National

Dubai just celebrated the opening of the tallest building in the world, started taking bookings for the first ever Armani hotel and welcomed the first international Bloomingdales. Well, Dubai actually started with two Bloomingdales. One location is a three-floor, 146,000-square-foot fashion and accessories store and the other is a 54,000-square-foot housewares store.

Lila Delilah dishes to the Middle East's leading English daily newspaper about the New York Icon:

“As far as luxury goes, Bloomingdale’s falls within the middle of the New York department store hierarchy,” explains Lila Delilah, the editor of the popular New York shopping blog Madison Avenue Spy. A longtime luxury shopper, Delilah launched the blog in May 2008 in response to the lack of information about top sales in Manhattan available on the web. Since then, she has developed a cult following.

“Bloomingdale’s has a wider assortment of price points and is less intimidating to many customers,” says Delilah. “They carry more bridge/diffusion lines, which attracts a more economically diverse clientele.”
