The landmark event is strutting into town this weekend…

After the very first fashion week in Saudi was announced last year, it became the talk of the town. The event saw 30 Saudi brands strutted down the runway, and it was a lavish affair. And this weekend, we’ll welcome the first Red Sea Fashion Week.
