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.

Saudi health minister promises to procure tested vaccine

  • COVID-19 cases continue to decline in Saudi Arabia

JEDDAH: Saudi Health Minister Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah on Monday said the Kingdom will procure vaccine for the novel coronavirus once it is confirmed to be safe and effective.

He said research on the vaccine is underway in a number of countries and the Saudi health authorities are following the developments.
The number of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases continues to decline in the Kingdom with the recovery rate from the illness rising to 96 percent. The minister attributed the decline on the “commitment to health precautions.”
“I also thank my fellow health practitioners for their wonderful efforts,” Al-Rabiah said.
Commenting on the second and stronger wave of COVID-19 in some countries, he said it was due to a lack of “commitment to social distancing” and failure to wear masks and taking other precautions.
He ruled out any leniency on part of the government in its fight against the virus. The minister said it is necessary to abide by precautionary measures to keep the virus at bay.


• Saudi Arabia recorded 381 new infections on Monday.

• With 16 new fatalities, the virus-related death toll has risen to 5,201.

“We (all) are in one boat, and the failure of some affects everyone, so we must work together” to check the spread of the virus.
He also advised people who show COVID-19 symptoms to visit Tetamman (rest assured) clinics.
“Appointments can be made through the ministry’s Sehaty app, and anyone who has any questions or wants to consult a doctor can call 937,” the minister said.
Saudi Arabia recorded 381 new infections on Monday. The total number of COVID-19 cases has reached 348,583 since the beginning of the outbreak in the Kingdom.
The Health Ministry said 16 more people died due to complications caused by the virus raising the death toll to 5,201. The ministry also reported 357 new recoveries. The total number of recovered cases has now increased to 328,895.
