Saudi National Day is celebrated annually on September 23 to commemorate the renaming of the Kingdom of Nejd and Hejaz to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which occurred in 1932 with a royal decree from King Abdul Aziz Ibn Saud.

The fashion show is inspired by the traditions of tribal communities from around Saudi Arabia and is aimed at highlighting the Kingdom’s diverse heritage, Kindassa told al-Sabq.

Each dress will be embroidered differently using pearls, gold, and colored threads, she said.
