The Rizalyn Capati of Avenue at Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi's newly opened luxury mall, has caught the eye of local VIPs and luxury travelers with her stunning service at Manolo Blahnik. The new mall caters to the super wealthy and difficult to please, but Capati has made her work an art and herself as the go-to favorite for customers.

Rizalyn Capati goes above and beyond the call of duty in the pursuit of pleasing her customers.

And she is so good at what she does some VIP clients will shop at Manolo Blahnik's new Abu Dhabi branch only if she is on shift.

"I have one client who we started to have in July only and she has bought almost 30 pairs of shoes already," says Ms Capati, the store manager at Manolo Blahnik, where a pair of shoes can cost up to Dh4,750 (US$1,293).

"I am always the one attending to her. She will not come unless I am around," adds the Filipina sales assistant, who has lived in the UAE for almost seven years.
