Madonna memorabilia on sale in UAE
Madonna fans in the UAE are being offered the chance to own a piece of the singer’s authentic memorabilia.
More than 60 items - including a selection of outfits, concert and movie costumes, jewellery, props and personal items – will be on sale at BurJuman’s ‘Simply Madonna’ exhibition.
The collection has been built up over the past six years by Marquee Capital, a memoribilia investment firm, and spans the star’s 25-year career in showbiz.
Pieces include Madonna’s Marilyn Monroesque pink ‘Material Girl’ gown, the infamous ‘Open Your Heart’ black satin bustier, outfits from Madonna’s portrayal of Eva Perón in the multi- Oscar winning ‘Evita’, and Who’s That Girl Tour gloves.
Other standout exhibits offered in the sale include jewellery, concert tour costumes, film props, photographs, awards and a series of rarely seen items from the music legend’s personal life – including a signed AmEx card, the cancellation of a post-marital agreement with Sean Penn, a hand-written Valentine’s Day letter, school yearbook, film contracts and a daily planner that gives fans a peek into Madonna’s personal world.
“The sale of Madonna memorabilia is an incredible opportunity for fans to own a piece of the life of a true legend. This is an opportunity that has never been offered to the public in the region before and the people of the UAE have the rare chance to get first dibs on some of the most iconic pieces of pop culture in existence,” said Sabina Khandwani Head of PR and Marketing, BurJuman.
“We are expecting a great deal of interest from buyers outside of the UAE as well, die-hard Madge fans and collectors – and when it comes to the price, they can be pretty sure this is an investment that is only going to appreciate.”
The Simply Madonna Exhibition will take place at BurJuman South Village Area, BurJuman Observatory Area (opposite Virgin) from 10 am – 10 pm from May 24 to June 6.
Visitors interested in purchasing one of the pieces will have the opportunity to do so from 9am to 4pm daily, from May 27 to May 31.
