Hundreds of brides-to-be flocked over the past two days to the first ever bridal exhibition and fashion show to be organized in Jeddah.
Princess Mudi Bint Nasir Bin Abdulaziz inaugurated the 19th Saudi International Weddings Exhibition at Jeddah Hilton Thursday evening.
"Saudi women are becoming an essential partner in the development process particularly following many decisions that met women’s aspirations to enhance their skills and empower them to be productive, achieve their dreams and express themselves," the princess said.
For the first time ever, the exhibition hosted a fashion show with the participation of at least seven well-known designers. The show also gave a chance to upcoming designers in a segment called “Future fashion designers”.
Princess Mudi highlighted the role of Saudi women fashion designers who managed to present their distinguished works particularly by displaying traditional Saudi designs representing different regions of the Kingdom.
She called for supporting productive families and providing venues for them to showcase their products at all major exhibitions.
About 2,000 people attended Thursday's inauguration ceremony where a large number of local and international investors were present.
It is estimated that Saudis spend over SR2 billion on wedding clothes annually.
