THE SAUDI FASHION MOVEMENT Why slow and steady wins the race.
The fashion scene in Riyadh is on a sleeping haze to say the least. There seems to be several trials to revive it, yet it will take a village to do so. From Riyadh Fashion Days to Jawahir to Harvey Nichols to the obscure one-off certified ‘stylist’ no one knows about except, of course, her closest friends… Such movements might have their hearts in the right place, however; the lack of support from fashion editors of leading magazines in the Gulf makes it hard to take them seriously. 26 DESTINATION RIYADH SEPTEMBER 2015
