The LMEI has been collaborating with the Art of Heritage (Riyadh) on an exciting project to create a reference source covering the range of styles of dress and adornment for men and women in Saudi Arabia. Approaching the subject from the viewpoints of art history, anthropology and archival research, the project uses the large AOH dress collection to add a unique dimension to Saudi's history of trade and interaction with global cultures.
