In the first week of February, German fashion designer Ben Weide offered a workshop on fashion design, marketing and e-commerce for students of the Arts and Skills Institute in Riyadh. The workshop was organised by the German Embassy in Riyadh. After an introduction into a structured design process, taking inspiration from photographs and using mood board techniques, the students set out to realise four design tasks: an elegant bomber jacket for men, a 2-sided scarve, a zipper vest for men, and a zipper winter abbaya. After two days of gathering ideas, designing and sketching, the student presented their designs at a reception in the German Embassy. In the coming months sample clothes based on the student designs will be produced in Germany. Later in April, they will be exhibited here in Riyadh.
