Hello, ladies! Let’s talk about fashion!
Early this year, we mentioned Riyadh Fashion Days in our Facebook status. There was a small bazaar featuring a few designers of the Middle East. We went to Maison Bo-M in Nujoud Mall beside the Intercontinental Hotel. Admittedly, it was the first time we heard of Maison Bo-M and the Gulf designers. During the first Riyadh Fashion Days, we were introduced to the wonderful world of the Gulf designers. We saw the bags of Fyunka, the dresses of Razan Alazzouni, the organic products of Green Bar Inc., and a few more brands.
Now, Riyadh Fashion Days is back for more! This second edition is bigger and better! Riyadh Fashion Days will showcase brand new autumn and winter collection exclusive to fashion house, Maison Bo-M (house of bohemian lifestyle). The event will take place on November 4-8, 2012. There will be 5 days of fashion shows featuring 25 designers from the region. Riyadh Fashion Days’ second edition focuses on giving designers from the Gulf (Bahrain, Egypt, Qatar, Kuwait, UAE, and KSA) public recognition.
The merchandise which you’ll see in the catwalk will be for sale.There will also be artistic installations. If you haven’t seen Maison Bo-M, it’s a treasure trove of all wonderful items from clothes to accessories to home furnishing and #RFP12 will be a good opportunity to visit the place.
So here’s how it works. Tickets for Riyadh Fashion Days is SR150 per person. This will give you access to one night of fashion show where designers and their creations are accessible. If you’re interested in all of the 5 days, you can get a discounted ticket worth SR 450. Store opening hours is 5pm until 10:30pm. Fashion shows start from 8:30pm until 10:30pm while fashion exhibitions are every evening by invitation only from 5pm to 11pm. This event is of course, FOR LADIES ONLY. Tickets can be bought in Maison Bo-M. For booking, please call 01-2021205.
The Pink Tarha is so upbeat with this development in the fashion scene here in Riyadh (it’s one of those really rare events we really look forward to) that we’d want to attend every night. However, time wouldn’t permit us for sure so we just look forward to attending the opening ceremony led by HRH Princess Reema Bandar Al Saud and the closing ceremony presentation by a special guest. A special guest! Hmnnn, exciting!
