Store mannequins in Saudi Arabia do not have heads, and I’ve seen some mannequins without arms as well. I believe it has something to do with the religion and idolization. I wonder if the mannequins can be ordered headless/armless or if there is some huge warehouse somewhere with all these mannequin heads in it. There are many shops in Jeddah that sell fancy evening gowns to women, who wear them to weddings which are usually only attended by women.
I remember when I first met my husband many years ago, he told me that Saudis would never wear T-shirts with faces of humans or animals, although since I’ve been here in KSA, I have seen children wearing clothing with animals on them.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
