The first Gina store outside the United Kingdom was established in 2009, taking pride of place in the prestigious Dubai Mall. The new Fashion Avenue store became an idyllic reflection of that of its sister stores in Britain. The new store quickly gained mass popularity in the Middle East, offering up Kurdash’s passion for bespoke designer shoes and handbags across the world.
The fourth Gina store opened its doors in 2011, located in the Mall of Emirates, Dubai. This world class destination is well known for its pride of place as the height of fashion, with many designers simply dreaming of the offer of opening a store. With this vast expansion, Gina London chose to relocate to a significantly bigger state of the art unit in North London to keep up with the ever growing popularity and demand.
2014 - Present
In 2014, Gina acquired a boutique in the exclusive Mayfair’s Mount Street, but with a new concept. The new Gina boutique aims to create a more relaxed approach to luxury designer shopping, whilst still maintaining the traditional values of the Gina brand.
Today, Gina shoes and handbags remain a world renown brand of footwear and handbags. Known for its excellence. The same beauty and grace can be seen in Gina shoes now, as Mehmet Kurdash saw in Gina Lollobrigida when he created the first pair of Gina shoes back in 1954. Gina remains as their last surviving luxury footwear British designer label in London, and continues to flourish year after year.
