Non-stop sequins, kaleidoscopic colors and vivid, geometric embroidery rarely spring to mind when most Americans think of Saudi Arabian dress. Most Americans must be misinformed. Arab garb goes far beyond billowy black shrouds. It's as varied as the kingdom's climate and geography, a fact that's brought to the fore with 30 complete outfits, contemporary and historic, in "Palms and Pomegranates: Traditional Dress of Saudi Arabia." The exhibit is at the Craft and Folk Art Museum.
