Pre-Ramadan pop-up show celebrates local and regional brands in Riyadh

RIYADH: Art, music, fashion, and coffee are among the perks of attending the pre-Ramadan pop-up show in Riyadh’s Lakum Artspace this week.

The four-day exhibition consists of curated pop-up shops that feature brands from local and regional designers.

The shops boast workshops for visitors interested in flower arranging, along with live art and fashion sketching.

And, for refreshments, there are drinks from the studio’s own coffee shop, Malmoum Cafe.

Art curator Dana Qabbani says that the pop-up show has been created to celebrate local brands and give them a platform to share their work.

She said: “I wanted to celebrate the success of the brands that grew with us 10 years ago.

“These Saudi brands are led by amazing ladies and men, who have proved themselves in the market both locally and internationally.”

One of the featured brands is Tamashee, a well-known high-end Arabian Gulf footwear brand based in Dubai that has expanded to the Kingdom.

Muneera Al-Tamimi, co-founder of Tamashee, said that the brand had collaborated with Qabbani in the past.

She said: “Tamashee has been around for 10 years now. We have worked with the team behind the ‘pre-show’ and Lakum Artspace many times and admire their creativity and choice of unique brands that they bring together
