All About Saudi Design Week

Here is a very detailed description of what SDW is and what it holds for us quoted right from Basma Bouzo whom is the Co-Founder & Editor-at-Large of Oasis Magazine:

Saudi Design Week 2014 : February 9-15th, 2014

The first edition of Saudi Design Week will take shape as a boutique fair with venues all over the city of Riyadh. SDW will host a Design Forumevents and workshops that will be take place across the capital, which will sweep multiple disciplines from decorative art, design, to art, photography, typography, and fashion. SDW will also host the first Design Forum (taking place at The King Faisal Foundation 9,10,11,& 13 of February), which will bring together luminaries from the fields of fashion, design, art, and business to discuss, explore and debate some of the most pressing issues facing the design field in the region today. The forum will act as a center stage for a series of stimulating speeches, panel discussions, presentations and Q&A sessions to generate an enriching dialogue and set the tone for future editions of SDW.
