WHITE MILANO AND SAUDI100 BRANDS PRESENT SAUDI TALENTS IN A FUSION OF STYLE UNVEILED DURING #MFW

For the second consecutive year, Saudi fashion took the spotlight at Milan Fashion Week, collaborating with the renowned WHITE Milano to present a series of captivating showcases, immersive showrooms, and engaging activations.

The “State of Fashion in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (2023)” report underscores the robust state of Saudi Arabia’s fashion industry, showcasing its remarkable growth potential among large, high-income markets. Projections indicate a staggering 48% surge in retail fashion sales in Saudi Arabia from 2021 to 2025, reaching $32 billion, with an annual growth rate of 13%. This growth is driven by the Kingdom’s strong economic development and a growing population, particularly in the categories of apparel, accessories, footwear, and luxury goods. The luxury fashion sector in the GCC achieved a total value of $9.6 billion in 2021, with Saudi Arabia experiencing a remarkable 19% growth. WHITE Milano, a semi-annual extravaganza within Milan Fashion Week, has consistently attracted fashion enthusiasts since its inception in 2002, unveiling approximately 1,000 collections and hosting over 20,000 visitors during each edition.
