About us

The Closet Egypt founded in 2018 as a branch of The Closet UAE, the largest and most trusted consignment shop in the Middle East since 2010, owned and managed by The Closet General Trading LLC for consigning, selling, and buying authentic pre-owned and brand-new designer handbags and accessories. Think top-of-the-line brands—Hermès, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Gucci and more—for a fraction of the price of traditional retail stores. The Closet was founded in June of 2010 by Hadeer Soliman, who saw a need in the market for a store appealing specifically to the equally fashion-conscious and budget-conscious woman. From this observation came the “clean up your closet” concept to assist ladies in financing their new must-haves by selling their pre-loved items.

OUR STORY

June of 2010 is when the seed for The Closet was planted. From humble beginnings as an online-only store, selling through Facebook and souq.com, it took just four months for the boutique to launch its first official online store. In 2013, The Closet grew—opening its first retail shop in Jumeirah Centre in Dubai, followed by a Sunset Mall branch (no pun intended) in 2014. In addition to our two branches in United Arab Emirates, we have opened our branch in Egypt in 2019. We've built a stellar reputation as the best in the business by following a three-pronged recipe for success—honesty, honesty, and honesty. We are big-city glamour-meets-small-town authenticity.

OUR MISSION

"To make it easy and cost-effective for ordinary women to express themselves through fashion."

WHO'S BEHIND THE CLOSET

Hadeer Soliman

Founder & Owner

Picture it: You’re a bright 14-year-old girl who grew up surrounded by male relatives with their own successful businesses. Your mind sparkles with possibility at the thought of starting your own. You will do everything to become successful. Years later, magic happens. In June of 2010, the firecrackers of this now-woman’s imagination were ignited with the founding of The Closet. In 2011, she resigned from a top mobile provider to focus on running the business full-time. Her efforts paid off. Today, The Closet is the leading fashion shop in the Middle East. Having built her business on a foundation of hard work, integrity, and exceptional customer service, Hadeer seeks to empower women to express themselves through fashion.

Jamal AlObaidly

Owner & CEO

Behind the phenomenal Hadeer is an equally impressive man, Jamal, who has always been a vocal supporter of big dreams. In 2014, he resigned from large aluminum producer EGA to join her in running The Closet. Together, they form a powerful team. His day-to-day work centers around finance and expansion decisions, complementing her focus on product marketing and authentication. Bringing with him a breadth of knowledge gained from working for EGA in the aluminum production industry, he has proven himself invaluable to the success of the boutique. Because of him, The Closet was able to expand to a second location in Sunset Mall and beyond the borders of UAE into Egypt.
