Saudi Arabia held its first ever fashion week last week. But photos of the latest fashion from the deeply conservative Muslim kingdom will not flood social media feeds because photographers were not allowed and Men were also not allowed in the event.
In spite of the absence of men and photographers, it was a noteworthy event, with designers Roberto Cavalli and Jena Paul Gaultier featuring alongside local designers. The event kicked off with an opening ceremony on Tuesday and was held at the Ritz Carlton hotel in Riyadh.
