Underneath those drab black floor length cloaks that all women wear when out in public here in Saudi Arabia lies the latest fashions by the hottest and most expensive designers. Clothing like what is shown in this women’s fancy dress shop would be worn usually to weddings or other formal occasions such as that. Only a woman’s husband, brother or father would ever see her wearing a gown like this, since men and women are generally completely segregated at functions like weddings because socially mixing of the sexes here is culturally unacceptable.

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 and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
