As part of Saudi Arabia’s 90th National Day festivities this week, Saudi fashion designer Omaima Kindassa plans to stage a show that will be inspired by tribal traditional costumes worn in different parts of the Kingdom.
The event will kick off here Saturday evening and run for a week, online newspaper Sabq reported.
It aims at familiarizing the public, mainly the youth, with national costumes to help promote and increase an attachment to the homeland.
The show will feature outfits from the regions of Najd, Madinah and Al-Qassim.
The Saudi National Day, celebrated annually on Sept. 23, marks the unification of Saudi Arabia by King Abdul Aziz.
The Sabq quoted Kindasa as saying that in the north of the Kingdom crepe is used in the production of costumes. The urban garment that expresses the western region uses natural silk chiffon raw, with the ancient Hejazi embroidery.
