The diamond range is on sale only around the WMEBDD’s showcases. So only the luckiest fashion connoisseurs in Dubai will ever own a piece of the diamond range.

To celebrate the occasion with a touch of added sparkle, guests will have the coveted opportunity to enter a competition to win a pair of limited edition ladies DCJ Black Diamond jeans worth $4,040. Every eagle fashion eye must simply see if they can spot the difference between the genuine Black Diamond Dress and a placebo version worth $16,162.
