The Saudi spring collection? Female Saudi fashion designers push for fashion academy
Ten prominent Saudi female designers have banded together to create a new committee at the Jeddah Chamber of Commerce and Industry (JCCI) that will enable them to establish a new fashion academy in Jeddah.
The young female designers made their appeal to Prince Mishaal Bin Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz, Emir of Makkah, at the 3rd Productive Families Exhibition which ended on Tuesday.
“We have presented our agenda to the Emir of Makkah and he promised us to study our proposal. Our demand is simply to create a committee where all fashion designers can exchange experiences, ease difficulties and start new projects in this sector,” said Omaymah Azzouz, head of the Saudi Team for fashion design.
She stated that the new committee is under process to be part of JCCI’s various committees. “We really need the support to train young people, build factories and operate institutes for young Saudi fashion designers. All this will come if we have an umbrella to help us,” she said.
She praised the role of JCCI in supporting her team to avoid much obstacles.
