After presenting its remarkable collections around the world, Dolce & Gabbana brought a most regal show the historic location in Saudi Arabia.
Once again, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana have proven that they know how to create magic, with their breathtaking Al Ula presentation. Created in the heart of Italy, the fashion house’s very first fashion show in the region took place on January 27 in Saudi Arabia’s most historic location, Al Ula.
Known for its remarkable creations across the globe, Dolce & Gabbana celebrated its big moment in the Kingdom by lighting up the awe-inspiring structures of Al Ula with a regal showcase that presented its Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria and Alta Gioielleria.
The Alta Moda collection started off with a series of all-gold ensembles reflecting the bright lights as models transformed into royalty on the runway. The looks were topped off with decadents crowns and statement jewelry. Menswear picks gave prince-worthy pieces a modern spin. The next set of looks to showcase on the Al Ula runway brought exotic blooms to life with saturated hues and intense pops of color. The show also included a carefully selected curation of modest looks, including kaftans, which made the collection even more special given the location. The Dolce & Gabbana show came to an end—with a standing ovation—with breathtaking gowns that looked straight out of a fairytale.
To add to its big moment in the Kingdom, Dolce & Gabbana will also exhibit its collections within Maraya (the world’s largest mirrored building). Visitors in the region, for the first time, will be offered the rare opportunity to meet the Dolce & Gabbana premiere and master tailors for a private fitting and take home their bespoke off-the-runway pieces, all while exploring the exclusive space from January 28-31.
Below, take a closer look at some of the most stunning pieces from the showcase.
