Bathed in the golden glow of the sun, the seaside catwalk of Los Cabos became a vibrant showcase of fashion’s finest, where the sandy shores met the chic elegance of a world-class event. The first ever Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Mexico, Los Cabos The Luxury Edition presented by Marriott Bonvoy and Banorte, was a symphony of style, craftsmanship, and cross-cultural dialogue set against the backdrop of Mexico’s stunning Baja California Sur. Ocean Blue World was an international media partner for the event.

Solaz, a Luxury Collection Resort, Los Cabos, transformed its picturesque beach into a fashion runway where four prominent Mexican firms and six pioneering Saudi Arabian brands, selected by The Saudi Fashion Commission, illustrated the narrative of ‘Luxury Redefined’.

Amidst the excitement of beachside runway shows, each designer stitched their unique vision into the fabric of the event. Mexican designers like Abel López sculpted classic femininity into modern art, while Alfredo Martínez splashed the canvas with sophisticated and vibrant hues inspired by Nan Kempner’s legacy.

Kris Goyri’s “The Vacation” Resort collection was a tribute to the modern woman, marrying simple, angular structures with rich, intricate details under the warm Los Cabos sun. Sandra Weil’s BIOLIGHT collection was a revelation of fluid forms and a celebration of the multifaceted woman.

Saudi Arabia’s creative force added a new dimension to the affair. Nora Al Shaikh’s line elegantly wove tradition into modern silhouettes, NH Designer’s bridal and evening attire gleamed with global sophistication, and Waad Aloqaili Couture exemplified the empowerment and individuality of women through each stitch and seam.

Khawla Al Aiban’s “Desert Roses” unfurled on the runway like a botanical dream in delicate fabrics, while Kaf by Kaf redefined outerwear with a cultural twist. Dazluq by Salma Zahran presented a minimalist elegance that became the epitome of the red carpet and special occasion wear.
