Film Director Ali F. Mostafa, Middle East Brand Ambassador for Dunhill

Alfred Dunhill – the definitive men’s luxury brand – is delighted to announce Emirati Film Director and Producer, Ali F. Mostafa, as a brand ambassador for Dunhill in the Middle East.

Ali Mostafa reflects the DNA of the Alfred Dunhill brand - an elegant modern gentleman, accomplished and inspirational. Ali was recently awarded ‘The Best Dressed Male’ honour at the Ahlan! Hot 100 in February 2010, at which of course he wore Dunhill. The young filmmaker & producer’s prestigious career has already established him a key influencer on the world stage of cinema.

“It’s an honour to be associated with Alfred Dunhill. The style and the attributes that Dunhill represent are very much in line with what I appreciate in men’s fashion,” said Mostafa.

Nader Elmir, General Manager Alfred Dunhill Ltd., Middle East & Africa, said:
“Ali’s accomplishments in producing and directing as well as his creative vision and talent truly embody the qualities of the Dunhill intelligent gentleman. Dunhill consider Ali’s work, such as City of Life, to be at the fore-front of its genre not just within the UAE but on a global scale, and so this relationship is very exciting for us”.

Since its modern day inception in 1893 London, Alfred Dunhill Limited has offered the discerning gentlemen unparalleled quality in an expansive array of masculine luxury products. Originally offering wares for the dawn of the motorcar, the Dunhill brand was launched as “Dunhill’s Motorities” and in addition to the clocks and dashboards needed for driving, Dunhill offered signature leather jackets and apparel needed to navigate the open-top cars of the era. From that entrepreneurial legacy, Dunhill has established itself as the pre-eminent source of luxury goods for the modern man. Acclaimed British menswear designer Kim Jones was recently appointed as Creative Director for the brand, supervising product design and development. Alfred Dunhill Limited is a Richemont holding, a Swiss luxury goods company founded in 1988 by South African businessman Anton Rupert.

Dunhill entered the Middle East market in 1966, opening the first point of sale in the Kingdom of Bahrain, and it has been present in the region ever since. Currently, the brand is very well represented in the UAE, KSA, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain. Over the years, Dunhill has achieved global recognition as a brand that offers functional and essential luxuries to meet the needs of today’s men. In this respect, the urban perspective and unique lifestyles of the Middle East corresponds to the maison's vision of “advancing the pursuit of male indulgence” as it brings the ever-expanding luxury emporium to those who seek fashion with an attitude.
Dunhill's product portfolio includes menswear, leathergoods, cufflinks, writing instruments and other accessories for men.
