Arab Fashion Week, which was due to take place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, from 26 to 31 March, has been postponed, according to members of the executive board.
There is no new date confirmed, however, the new schedule will be announced on 26 March. Insiders tell Bazaar that it will likely be held in April.
The event bills itself as “the world’s only ready-couture and pre-collections fashion week”, attracting designers representing 22 Arab countries.
Organised by the Arab Fashion Council, this is set to be the first fashion week in Saudi Arabia’s history. Ritz Carlton Riyadh will play host to the event, which will include a Harvey Nichols pop-up store, workshops, and networking sessions, as well as the all-important fashion shows.
