AlUla, the Saudi Arabian city of heritage and culture, situated in the northwest of Saudi Arabia, will host fashion designers Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria and Alta Gioielleria collections in a unique and elegant fashion show on January 27 as part of AlUla Moments festivals season.
As well as the show, Dolce & Gabbana will exhibit the one-of-a-kind collection in Maraya, the world’s largest mirrored building, which will be open for visitors to experience from January 28-31. Guests will have the opportunity to visit the exclusive space, meet the Dolce & Gabbana première and master tailor and get their choices from the unique and customised collection.
The event represents a new stage in the creative path that Dolce & Gabbana started in 2012 with the first Alta Moda Collection, which has been presented through the years in some of the most fascinating Italian and worldwide locations. This has been a journey to discover craftsmanship and pay homage to the most beautiful, poetic and passionate creations that are shaped by human hands.
The fashion show will take place during the Ikmah Fashion Cavalry Show, an event during Winter at Tantora, the first festival in the Kingdom celebrating heritage, culture and music. Ikmah Fashion Cavalry Show is a special exhibition celebrating the extraordinary spirit and tradition of Arabian horses, famous all over the world for their unparalleled beauty and elegance.
Jabal Ikmah, considered one of the main historical and archaeological sites in AlUla, will witness a special evening dedicated to handmade fashion design creativity with an all-Mediterranean flavour. Jabal Ikmah, a mountain near the ancient city of Dadan - the capital of the ancient Dadanite and Lihyanite Kingdoms - has been described as a huge open-air library with historical inscriptions and rock art.
The Ikmah Fashion Cavalry Show has been conceived and produced by Balich Wonder Studio. The show will showcase a full parade of 12 Arabian horses with customised horse accessories and attire, highlighting the harmony between horses and models and impressing the attendees with a unique show.
