Saudi Arabia to build opera house in Riyadh

The partnership will help deliver a growth strategy for the fashion industry within the Arab World and provide a gateway into the region for British and worldwide brands.

This comes as part of the partnership between the British Fashion Council and AFC, which was announced during London Fashion Week.

Pakistan's Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Khan Hasham Bin Saddique met with members of Saudi-Pakistan Parliamentary Friendship Committee in the Shoura Council led by the committee's chairman Dr. Abdullah H. Al-Harby.

The announcement was made at a glitzy press conference in Riyadh.

The Arab Fashion Council was established in 2014 in London, with the license of the International Extraterritorial Authority to develop and regulate the fashion industry in the 22 Arab countries.

The Saudi Arabian government has announced that Saudi women can start and run business, without the consent of the men in their families.

He said our defense and economic relations with Saudi Arabia have deepened while we are cooperating with Iran in anti-terrorism efforts.

The main player that will be showcasing at the event has been announced to be Roberto Cavalli.

He added that 500 companies have already registered to organize entertainment events this year. The calendar includes more than 5,000 events, offering a diverse lineup of live entertainment and created to appeal to all of Saudi society.

"The launch of the Arab Fashion Week in Riyadh is an unprecedented step for the Arab Fashion Council".

In the past, Arab Fashion Week has been hosted so far exclusively by Dubai.

"It's true we could make mistakes here and mistakes there".
