DUBAI, UAE – MULU, the lifestyle fashion brand for plus-size women, today announced the opening of a new office in Dubai as part of its MEA expansion plans.
Formerly known as Kanessa, the fashion label was previously based in the Netherlands, where it launched its e-commerce business in 2018. The brand is sold globally and has found success in the European and North American markets. MULU has now established its roots in Dubai to meet the growing demand for plus-size fashion in the Middle East and Africa.
The new office in Dubai is ideally located to help build MULU’s local and regional presence to conduct business on the ground. MULU has also established a warehouse to serve as a regional hub for the brand’s continued expansion into new markets and to meet growing customer demand in the region and Africa. This year, MULU plans to open a retail store in Dubai to further expand its footprint and meet customer demand.
