In April, Katrin Schanbl participated in a fashion show in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to launch a unique capsule collection in collaboration with Art of Heritage, a charitable organization with a dual mission to preserve Saudi Arabia’s cultural heritage while empowering women in the Kingdom.
Working closely with Art of Heritage’s embroidery and tailoring workshops, Schnabl created a modern sophisticated collection designed with Saudi women in mind. Guests were invited to a fashion show to celebrate the launch of this unique collaboration, and could place orders on exclusive styles, which came in a variety of traditional and modern fabrics in addition to color combinations, handpicked by the designer for Art of Heritage’s clientele.
This exciting collaboration represents a new approach to luxury, one that will evolve with a series of future collections that will transform Saudi Arabia’s traditional tailoring and embroidery techniques into timeless modern pieces. The collection will also be available at Art of Heritage’s retail stores.
