Saudi fashion designer Mohammed Khoja is a self-taught artist and the founder of luxury label Hindamme, which he established in 2016.

Hindamme has a strong presence on the Saudi fashion scene with its “East meets West” trademark, and the brand received international attention when Khoja designed a black bomber jacket with the insignia “June 24, 2018” to celebrate women in the Kingdom being allowed to drive.

The jacket was purchased by the National Museum of World Cultures, in the Netherlands, and Khoja’s work has also been used as course material at the University of Virginia and Bangladesh University. 

Hindamme’s first groundbreaking collection “Season I” was launched in 2016, followed by “Season II” in 2017, and “Season III” last year. 

Khoja attained his bachelor’s degree in business administration from the American University of Paris in 2011.

Aside from his presence on the fashion scene, Khoja also works closely in the field of arts and culture and has been involved in the planning of several art exhibitions.

Condemnation of attacks on Saudi Aramco oil plants continue

  • Bahraini King calls Saudi leadership

RIYADH: Condemnations of Saturday’s attack on Saudi Aramco oil installations continued on Monday, as the US pointed out Iran as the likely culprit behind the drone strikes that have dramatically escalated tensions in the region and triggered a record leap in global oil prices.

King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman both received calls from the King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa of Bahrain to condemn the attacks at Saudi oil facilities in Abqaiq and Khurais.

US Secretary of Defense Mark Esper called the crown prince, who is also the defense minister, to affirm his country's full support for the Kingdom.

British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said, “We will work with international partners to forge the widest and most effective response,” with a statement from his ministry saying the “UK remains committed to supporting the security of Saudi Arabia.”

India also slammed the attacks and reiterated the country’s “rejection of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations,” a foreign ministry spokesman said.

Official Spokesperson of the UN Secretary General Stephane Dujarric said in a statement that the Secretary General condemns Saturday's attacks on two Aramco oil plants.

The German Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said, “Such an attack on civilian and vital infrastructure in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is not justified”.
