Zamalek is a lovely area. I can find everything in it, as it is a high-class area of Cairo, but there is one creative outlet for all ages & genders, and it is Fostoq.
Fostoq is an inexpensive outlet for all types of clothing, from formal to casual. I always pass by this outlet which is always full of new stock. Every outfit is brand new & worth buying. Once, I bought from it an H&M t-shirt & sweat pants all for about 195 EGP.
For this price in Egypt one cannot afford to buy branded outfits, as it would cost more if I went to the actual store itself. Instead, Fostoq is ideal for picking up wardrobe basics and knock-offs of brands like Bebe, Express, Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren and Lacoste. I didn’t find dresses, wedding dresses or clothes for all occasions — Fostoq is only for wardrobe basics & formal trousers, nothing more.
Fostoq is a treasure. If you find it, you will keep stopping there every now & then to check the latest arrivals and buy something!
