Arab Fashion Week Riyadh, which was due to take place from March 26 to 31, has been postponed. A statement from The Executive Board of The Arab Fashion Council said the decision had been made in order to accommodate more international guests.

“Since the initial announcement made in February, Arab Fashion Week Riyadh has garnered significant interest from International guests wishing to attend. Given this important historical moment for the Kingdom, the AFC together with the GEA and the participating designers have collectively taken the steps to postpone the dates in order to be able to welcome guests from all over the world, which we are only able to do by taking some additional time,” said Layla Issa Abuzaid, Vice Chairman and Executive Director for Saudi Arabia at The Arab Fashion Council.

The inaugural Arab Fashion Week Riyadh will now take place from April 10 to 14

The lineup of international and regional designers still includes Roberto Cavalli, Jean Paul Gaultier, Yulia Yanina and Bassil Soda. We will keep you updated as more guests and designers are announced.
