In the realm of fashion, Saudi Arabia stands as a shimmering jewel of opportunity. The “State of Fashion in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (2023)” report foretells its staggering ascent, projecting unprecedented growth. With the grace of a phoenix, the kingdom’s fashion industry is set to soar, boasting the highest growth rates among its high-income counterparts. By the horizon of 2025, the realm of retail fashion is poised for an astonishing surge of 48%, ascending to a resplendent $32 billion, illuminated by an annual growth rate of 13%. This meteoric rise finds its roots in the Kingdom’s burgeoning economy and its ever-expanding populace, as apparel, accessories, footwear, and the realm of luxury goods bask in the promise of monumental gains.
