Now, the Fairmont Dubai will be the site of Roberto Cavalli's first Cavalli Club a new 'entertainment and night-life' concept, according to media reports on Tuesday in the US.

Due to open in November, Cavalli is said to be planning a two-storey club with a separate entrance from the Fairmont Dubai.

The floors will be created in shiny black quartz with reflective crystal dust and tall walls of Swarovski crystals create sparkling curtains.

The ground floor will showcase jewellery, watches and exclusive accessories from the Cavalli Maison.

There will also be selection of refined food products chosen by Roberto Cavalli to express the best of 'Made in Italy."

Upstairs, an Italian restaurant will be the centrepiece, with a sushi bar and a wine bar featuring Cavalli Selection red wine.
