The event, staged by the Ministry of Culture’s Fashion Commission, will feature a host of the Kingdom’s up-and-coming and established fashion designers, showcasing haute couture, ready-to-wear and more in both menswear and womenswear.

The venue and designers for the second edition of Riyadh Fashion Week have yet to be announced. However, we expect this year’s event to be more spectacular than ever, with each day unfolding a thoughtfully curated array of captivating runway shows.

Last year, the inaugural Riyadh Fashion Week took place in KAFD, with the winding runway set against a striking backdrop of artificial sand dunes and accommodated hundreds of guests and celebrities.

Among the prominent designers who participated were the iconic “Adnan Akbar Fashion House” (founded by the visionary Saudi designer Adnan Akbar in 1970), Yousef Akbar, Atelier Hekayat, Tima Abid, Dar Alhanouf, Dazluq, and many more.
