Founded in 1979 in Kuwait City, Al Boushiya is a family business that now spans three distinct generations. Handed down from Mr. and Mrs. Kaluti to their daughters, Al Boushiya has grown to five boutiques in Kuwait City and two in Abu Dhabi. Its success is proven in its thirty-four years of steady growth and expanding clientele base.
Al Boushiya opened its doors in Abu Dhabi in 1993. Since its beginnings, Al Boushiya has not only maintained its relationships with its loyal clients but has also continued to attract new clients at every turn. In fact, Al Boushiya continues to draw in customers from beyond Abu Dhabi, into Dubai and the Northern Emirates, and the wider GCC and Middle East. Clients come to visit Al Boushiya not only from Doha and Manama, but also from Amman and Cairo among others. By consistently offering the best in customer service, providing a wide variety of high-end and exclusive labels, and providing impeccable alteration services, Al Boushiya has consistently met its customers’ expectations.
In addition to its growing clientele base, Al Boushiya has grown to a staff of 13, a significant increase from its beginnings as a boutique run, maintained and managed by the owner. The staff at Al Boushiya is carefully selected, well-trained and part of a close-knit family. Employee camaraderie, loyalty and tenure are very important to the Kaluti family ensuring that clients build relationships with the sales team and tailors.
Beyond its local reputation and internal structure, Al Boushiya is well known in the international fashion community. Close, exclusive, and long-standing relationships with vendors and designers ensure that Al Boushiya stands out among the competition. The family behind the boutiques invests heavily in friendships with the designers and upper management behind the labels. This helps Al Boushiya to cater to clients’ needs by customizing gowns to local and cultural tastes and preferences while also making it possible to place special orders for long-time, loyal clients.
Al Boushiya works with some of the world’s best known designers and labels carrying everything clients need be it a cocktail dress, a wedding gown or a shoe to match a fancy clutch. From Zac Posen to Badgley Mischka, Zuhair Murad to Marchesa, Al Boushiya spares nothing to adorn its clients with the latest fashion trends straight from the red carpet.
