Riyadh Fashion Week made a grand entrance into the fashion world on Friday night, showcasing a unique blend of talent and rich history.
Kicking off the season for Saudi fashion, Ashi Studio's collection predominantly featured white and ecru, with elegant designs inspired by the landscapes and culture of Saudi Arabia.
Models graced the runway in embroidered gowns adorned with delicate beadwork and sequins. Tima Abid's designs masterfully merged contemporary and traditional Arabian heritage.
Atelier Hekayat's collection drew from cherished childhood memories, paying homage to their father's architectural and woodworking background. Ballet served as a notable influence, evident in the lavender bodysuit, ruffled skirt, black-and-baby pink ensemble, and the unexpected addition of pointe shoes held by the model.
Yousef Akbar injected the runway with vibrant color and playful experimentation in the collection titled 'SHIFT//REBIRTH.' From bold neons to billowing dresses, chic sleek gowns, and more, his designs explored texture, shape, and a delightful spectrum of colors.
