After presenting its remarkable collections around the world, Dolce & Gabbana is bringing its designs closer to home: AlUla, Saudi Arabia, to be specific. The heritage city will play host to the Italian fashion house’s first show in the Kingdom which presents the Alta Moda, Alta Sartoria, and Alta Gioielleria collections on January 27. What’s more, Dolce & Gabbana will also exhibit the collection in Maraya, known as the world’s largest mirrored building. Here, visitors 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.

As part of the AlUla Moments season, the awe-inspiring structures of the site will come alive further with the vibrant creations of designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana displayed in the one-of-a-kind presentation. The fashion show is taking place alongside the Ikmah Fashion Cavalry Show at the iconic location of Jabal Ikmah, described by many as a huge open-air library due to its historical inscriptions. As the show’s name suggests, guests can not only expect male and female models, but also 12 Arabian horses dressed in custom accessories in a celebration of their spirit and beauty.
