RIYADH (AA) - Saudi Arabia's eastern city of Jeddah will host the country’s first-ever public women's fashion show Thursday evening.

To be held at the Jeddah Hilton Hotel, the event comes as part of the 19th Saudi International Wedding Show, which is being sponsored by Princess Moudi bint Nasser Al Saud, according to Saudi daily Okaz.

"Saudi women want to work freely in their country," Saudi fashion designer Ghadir Afghani told Anadolu Agency.

"In the past, fashion shows weren't held in public,” Afghani said. “But this is no longer the case.”

"The fashion world essentially caters to women, which prompted us to hold our earlier events outside Saudi Arabia,” he added.

“But now, we are actively planning events inside the kingdom," said the designer, who has participated in numerous fashion shows overseas.

According to event director Darine Kabbouch, the Saudi wedding market is one of the richest in the world, in which wealthy Saudis pay vast sums for lavish wedding ceremonies and parties.

The three-day exhibition in Jeddah will be attended by 160 local and international companies specialized in fashion, cosmetics and jewelry.
